Loyal Cruft Readers will recall my work on making sausages from scratch. The most difficult part was stuffing the sausage meat into the casing. I decided to get a better stuffer and settled on a Grizzly 5 lb. sausage stuffer I found on eBay. The grizzly company has a huge range of tools and machines. When the stuffer arrived, a huge catalog of all their products was also there. Everything from hand tools to lathes to welders to kits to build guitars from scratch.
I went to work prepping the meat for stuffing. On my second time around it went much more quickly. Soon the moment of truth was at hand and I stuffed the sausage. Here is a video of how it worked.
Obviously I sped up a few parts, but the entire stuffing process took me less than 10 minutes compared to well over an hour the first time. A huge improvement.
This is the stuffed sausage before I twisted it into links.
After twisting into more familiar links.
Having a real sausage stuffer makes huge difference. I think I went from raw ingredients to sausage to clean kitchen in about two hours. Good fun and good sausage.
