    Learn how to replace a gearbox for a Walton’s Stuffer?
    The first thing you are going to do is remove the canister from the base. Then you are going to unscrew the piston from the arm. Now you want to unscrew the four screws on the bottom of the housing and remove that plate. Next you remove the arm through the bottom of the gear housing, once it is cranked all the way down it should come out fairly easily if you pull it towards the back of the machine. Next you want to unscrew the 4 screws the side without the handle, these are metric bolts so you will want to use 14mm socket or wrench. You want to remove the bolts on the side without the handle, before you unscrew the two bolts on the side with the handle you will want to hold the gear box from the bottom, it normally will not fall out by itself but better safe than sorry. Now you pull the gear housing down and away from the side with the handle, the housing should come out fairly simply.

    To replace this you will put the new gearbox in the same way you took the old one out but only loosely tighten the bolts back down to make it easier to make any adjustments later. Put the screws back in on the side and the bottom of the housing and then put the arm back up through the bottom. Now you want to check a few things before you go any further. You want the two small attachments for the handle to be as evenly centered in their holes as possible, if they are out of whack this can cause some grinding between the gears and the arm. So once your holes are centered check to make sure your arms is coming out the top in the center of that hole as well. If not loosen the bolts further and make adjustments by pushing or pulling the bolts that the crank attaches to until everything is centered. Now tighten everything back down and you are good to get back to making sausages!

  • @Robert-Tartaglia Generally vinegar was added to the water to help reduce the smell. In my opinion, if you are just stuffing them the casings don’t require them nowadays, if you are boiling them then I might and add some. Some people also say it makes them more tender but this is debatable.

    A recipe that i have says to soak the hog casings in white vinegar and water. My question is, “what does the vinegar do for the casing?”

    @parksider Thanks. I did all that. I stuffed them tight twisted the tops down tight and secured them with twist ties. I’m going out right now to try again. Thanks for the tips!

  • Meat Hacks: Making Bone Marrow Burgers

    Meat Hacks

    The meatgistics User @Denny recently posted a question about how much bone marrow should be added to a burger per lb. Well, I had never done anything with bone marrow before so I decided to grab some and check out the process.

    I started out with a few beef marrow bones, you can pick these up at your local grocery store or butcher shop. The bones I bought were about 2 inches thick which made getting the marrow out a lot simpler than I thought it was going to be. I just pressed on one side with my thumbs and they came out the other end in one solid piece. After doing all the bones I had set aside for testing this I had 5.7 oz.

    Once I chopped them all up I wanted to find out how much a Tablespoon of this weighed so we could give advice in both volume and weight measurements, so 1 Tablespoon of this beef marrow weighed 8 grams so .28 of an oz.

    Now, Denny pointed out that a demo he saw said 3-4 Tablespoons per 1-2 lb of burger, we are going to go with 4 because I always tend to think more is better, so would be 1.1 oz per lb or .55 of an oz per lb. That’s a pretty big range so we are going to test it by using 4 tbsp or 1.1 oz for 1 lb of burger, then 1.5 lb of burger and then 2 lb of burgers.

    Since the purpose of this is to determine the ratio of Marrow to use we didn’t want any other taste to stand out so we aren’t using any patty mix with this, so just straight ground beef. We also are making burgers with no marrow as a control.

    So after we grilled all of the burgers the one we added the most bone marrow too was my favorite. The bone marrow adds a really interesting deep flavor but I was most surprised by how much it changed the texture of the burger. It stayed juicier and almost had a creaminess to it that would be hard to replicate with any other ingredient I can think of.

    I won’t be doing this every time I make a burger, buying the bones, prepping them and then mixing them in did not take too long but it was an extra step but if I had a bunch of friends over and really wanted to impress them with something then this is a really interesting way to make an over the top burger!

    Sitting at the beach on vacation my mind has time to wander…when you’re done stuffing give them a good twist to compact the meat. I’ve also give up on string tying I use zip ties and yes I wash them most of the time. We have zip tie loops that we’ll zip tie to the casings, makes hanging so much easier then just reuse the loops. That should help with the shrinkage issue.

    You may not have stuffed them enough. Sometimes it hard to stuff the larger casings and if it’s not tight the may cause the shrinking during the cooling process. Those cases are extremely durable don’t be afraid to stuff them.
