Barbeque. Sit back, relax, and let the smoke work it's magic!

Now why you want one of them goofy thangs? KA is the standard of the industry. They are total peeces of sheet which weigh a lot and take up too much room. They peedle them to dumb housewives and sell them all kinds of worthless attachements which dont work worth a caca neither. They are good for making Meringue for chocolate pie is the only use I ever found for one. Course you got to have a woman handy who knows how to do it too.

Yeppers...and anybody dumb enough to buy the sausage making attachment should be took out and severely chastized. Now don't even get me started on the one supposed to shred lettuce. That company got too many injuneers sitting around trying to figger out ways to part dumb yuppie housewives from their dinero. My Mama could make Meriegune with a fork. Yall are just a bunch of lazy bones or you aint got no wimmen around to handle it.

We have a Kitchen Aid, and it works fine. As for the attachments, I've got no complaint about the ones we have. I've used the meat grinder, and it does a good job on relatively small batches. But I have not tried to use it to stuff sausage casings, so bigwheel may be right about that application.

As for needing a woman to use it, I know how to run every machine in my house, and can repair most of them if need be. Anybody who can't ought to turn in his Y chromosome.
