    Used a kit for the first 10 pounds and snuck in jalepeno & cheddar, then last 5 pounds with Gersus' recipe he posted a week ago.  Thanks Gersus!!!

    Now thats some fine looking sausages that you have there. I really like your hanging invention too.
     
  6. Thanks guys!  Yeah I was impressed - for my first attempt they were very good.  Make that nice "snap" noise when you bite into them, just like the snacksticks the butcher makes.  I used the kitchenaid grinder attachment to stuff the sausages - it is brutally slow, so I'm thinking about getting the 5 lb stuffer from LEM.  Seems like a good starter unit.  I was literally losing sleep about how I could try to smoke them and get the right temp - but I found that roasting pan/bracket got the job done.

    Sticks look great.  Hope there's some left for the next time we get together.  Looks like a good way to spend a Sunday with the Pack not playing.

  11. Looks Great!!!!

    I have a kitchenaid mixer. Always wondered if the grinding attachment would be worth buying.

    Yes it is!  I used mine for several years before I could afford to get a larger grinder, it actually grinds very well.  Stuffing is difficult, an inexpensive 5 lb. stuffer is well worth the investment.
