I have had my CS several months now and have smoked up brisket, chicken, butts, jerky, etc. They have all been exellent. However the thing I primarely do with my CS is sausage. I have been making up 10-12lb batches of various sausage. Some execellent products have emerged from the smoker.
I have followed any sausage information from all of the post on this forum. I use ground meats and do all the mixing by hand. I also blend my own spices now and I don't use casings. Now my question is, has anyone had any experience with any sasuage stuffers? I don't intend to start using casings but I want to be able to get more uniform and smaller links (like Slim Jim size). This has not been possible for me by hand. I have seen all the different types of stuffers that are available on line out there and understand how each one works. But has anybody used any of them and had good or bad things to say about a particular model.
I have considered a simple jerky shooter but since I do 10-12lbs at a time these might not hold very much and do they really work? Also there is a water powered stuffer out there that sounds good but I have not been able to find any body on the net that says they use one and how good it works.
Any help would be appreciated.
I really enjoy sausage making & eating, so since this is more of a Q forum anyone else into sausage can contact me personally at chughes6.cfl.rr.com
