    Default Homemade sausage

    Well I did it. About 5-6# b.butt and 3# beef arm roast.(It felt right!). 2t thyme, 1t italian season, 2t garlic pwdr, 1/2t grnd mustard, 2t blk pepper, 2t Tony C's cajun, 1t onion pwdr, 1t celery salt, 1t paprika. No fat back, bad move.

    Wife said it was good and not dry. I say BS. Anyway. One thing I did learn is that the taste will change from the "test" and that the POS sausage stuffer for the KA is slow as he!!!

    But anyway. Thought I'd post some the pix I have. None during the process as the camera was in the house, daughter wanted to load some pix she took, that I will post in a bit.

    KA grinder rocked, really did good and was fast. The stuffer sucked it.

    all I got......all ya want to see.

    Yep, cooked to 150-152

    Fine looking sausage!!!! The KA stuffer is a 2 person job and needs a little finessing. I want to get a different stuffer too but they are expensive.

    The problem with the KA stuffer is 2 fold: First, it sits about a foot above your work surface, so your casings always want to slide off the tube due to the weight of the sausage. Second, because its really a grinder, and grinders tend to not stuff very well without turning the meat into an emulsion.

    Some look good, others look like a TURD!

    Practice will make perfect, but an old German sausage maker told me that you cannot have good sausage w/o good hard fatback.

    Had some trouble at first, hence the turds. I think it might work well as floor dry or cat litter.
