I dont have a stuffer so I will use the grinder for now. My first venture will be some Brats. I love them things. Gotta find a place to get the casings and such. I did see that the local Tractor Supply carries Collagen casings. Any thoughts?

Bill,
I don't know how far Hampton, VA is from you but there's a Bass Pro Shop there and they have a great selection of sausage making items, including collagen casings.

I think for fresh sausage the natural casings are the way to go. I got mine at the sausage maker, www.sausagemaker.com They sent me a container of natural casings for a very good price and there are a bunch of casings in there. Sign up for a catalog if you visit the site.

Thanks SC. My oldest goes to college down there. I will be checking them out.

How long do natural casings last? Looks like the only way to order is more than I will be making in one setting.

as long as they are packed in salt and kept in the fridge they will last forever

Brats are on my schedule of things to make. Does anyone make a brat that compares to Johnsonvilles (the best)?

I went with a LEM stuffer that cost more to get one with metal drive gears. The ones with plastic gears bothered me.

Ya know I have made a dedicated effort to acquire a taste for Johnsonvilles...but just haven't been able to do it. Only flavor I can dectect in those things is sweet. Perhaps the fact that I was grown afore I ever tried em and tend to be allergic to bland tasting stuff may have played a role in my not appreciating the flavor profile. Know some folks (all from North of the Mighty Red) who claims to just love em. Must be some type of regional preference type thang going on here. Now I can eat if there is enough mustard and kraut and stuff like that on there where I can't taste em too well.
