    Had some time today so that equals a trip to the store and getting out the grinder and stuffer. :)

    Today I decided on using a couple Legg's mixes, 6 lbs of each smoked sausage and bologna.

    I haven't tried these mixes before but I can't wait! I love bologna!

    Here are the mixes, measured out for 6 lb of meat each.

    I first did a 1/4" grind, then added Legg's cure, mixed each batch, did a 1/8" grind, and stuffed them with my NT 15lb stuffer. 

    I stuffed the smoked sausage mix in hog casings and the bologna in 1 1/2 fibrous casings.

    The bologna smelled so good! Can't wait till tomorrow to get these hangin in the smokehouse!

    In the smokehouse two hours ago for drying. It's raining like crazy here now. The rain doesn't affect the smoking but it did make it tough to find a spot for the AMNPS to get started and trying to put it in there without getting the pellets all soaked! It looked happy when I tucked it in there though so all is good.

    No money shot yet. It was late. I'll slice into some at lunch!

    I'm glad I ordered more pellets from Todd last week, I ran out of hickory during this smoke!

    The bologna is good! Really good! If you're not a garlic person you may not be as fond of it.

    The smoked sausage is good too. A tad bland IMO. It reminds me of something but I can't place it.

    Can't wait for more time in the fridge!
