First time ..........

I made sausage for the first time today using WittDogs Grandpa's Polish sausage recipe. Started out with about 18 lbs. of uncut pork butt and ended up with about (no scale) 11lbs. of sausage. Everything went well I thought for the first time making it. I used the horn stuffer WittDog sent me( That is a tough old girl right there ). I had a little trouble keeping all the links uniform in diameter. Other than that no problems.
I'm going to cook some up tomorrow, I'm not sure how yet.
Thanks to WittDog and Nick for all of your patience with my questions.
And thanks again Dog for the stuffer.

Dang Puff, thats great. I am itching to do some sausage. Just found out that a guy here at work has one of those big commercial meat grinders. May have him grind my meat for me.

I'm a big dude. It took damn near all my weight! One thing I learned quick is to not fill it up to much, maybe halfway.

Even though the grinder is small it still held it's own. I stopped a few times to let it cool off a bit.

Thanks everyone, I'm going to try some today.
