Thanks fisherman! I saw a video of one of those being used, that’s got me making a huge mess! :D
I ended up getting Walton’s 7lb vertical stuffer and you certainly have some leftover meat in the 90* bend area.
It’s a decent machine though, and I think there’s got to be a trick way to push that meat through. I usually do about 5lbs of meatsicks at a time, and I weighed what was in the machine, including the stuff tube, and it was about 0.8lbs. So if I want 5lbs of sausage I account for it.
I’ve been taking what’s left over and forming into a small loaf/sausage and smoking that at the same time. End up with a nice chunk of meat with a bit dryer rind around the outside. Has a nice chew to it with the center perfect.
Great mouth feel… Sorry Jonathon.
