    @h8fulhilbily You are correct, you will want to mix everything and then stuff before holding your product overnight. Trying to hold it before stuffing is going to make it very difficult (if not impossible) for your stuffer to get it into the casings.

    In the future, another option would be to use a cure accelerator like Encapsulated Citric Acid, then you could go right from stuffing to the smokehouse.

    Let us know if you need anything else!

  • Thanks, i will do that.

  • @ihang10 So then I would say that protein extraction is probably what is causing your issue. The fat renders out of the product and gets trapped between the outside of the sausage and the inside of the casing. Then when the product cools the fat congeals and you can’t get it to adhere. Mixing for a few more minutes will probably help resolve your issue. The other thing is when do you add your fat? Sometimes if you just mix in your fat with your lean the lean can coat the fat chunks but never really bind with it, so I would suggest you add it during the second grind.

  • @Jonathon The sausage was for Easter family dinner that didn’t happen because too many people were sick. The bottom round was sliced deli style & packaged for future French dip & roast beef sammies.bottom round 3 4.20.19.jpg
