    We picked up a 0.5 hp LEM grinder/stuffer to make ground speciality meats. We bought whole Costco pork loins at $1.50 lb, got back a bunch of back fat from butchering pasture raised Berkshire hogs recently. Figured the loins needed additional fat for sausage making. We bought cure/spice kits from Walton’s Inc in KS. Last Sunday did salami, summer and andouille sausage. Laid them in the smoker to add flavor and dry them a bit. Seems to have worked fine so far.

    Those look awesome! I bought an LEM grinder years ago and it’s paid for itself I processing costs. Andouille is a great sausage.

    How did you like the summer sausage? I got some from Walton's also but haven't made any yet.

    There is always some left in the stuffing tube, so we browned a little of each batch and were impressed.

    As long as it isn’t venison. . MIL passing from CJDv has banned it from the house.

    For real? Not being weird, just not sure if that's a Singleterry comment or not. Not making light of CJDv at all.

    Personally raising hogs and beef, so really don’t need more meat. Very low risk eating venison, but it is a personal choice not to. I’ve eaten a ton, could already be too late to quit. Watching the MIL pass was not something I care to repeat. I have lots of takers for the deer I shoot. That is their choice.

    Sooooo……. how about sharing a picture of your hands so we can count your fingers. I've heard a grinder of that size doesn't even slow down when a stray digit passes through it.

    Perhaps that is why you won't share the peperoni recipe? It calls for some finger?

    Lucky for me the intake tube is small enough and long enough that fingers can’t get down there. Guess they decided to hire good engineers instead of lawyers.
