2" or smaller is OK?

I notice LEM and other manufacturers of sausage stuffers offer a 2" dia. size of stuffer outlet tube. Is this necessary or simply convenient when fill plastic tubes like 1# pork sausage bags? Many stuffers are available with max size tube being max about 1.6".
Most places don’t have a 2" opening on a stuffing tube for a sausage stuffer. It simply can’t get that big because the flange (part that attaches to the stuffer) is only about 2-1/8". The largest we offer is 38mm (approximately 1.5") https://www.waltonsinc.com/waltons-38mm-ss-stuffing-tube
What you might be seeing is a 2" opening on a grinder stuffing tube, like this one: https://www.waltonsinc.com/22-2-stuffing-horn
If you can get one that is 2", bigger is always better when filling larger meat bags and casings, but the difference between 1.6" and 2" on a sausage stuffer will be pretty minimal. Every little bit can help though. We do always recommend going with the largest stuffing tube possible that fits your casing, meat bags, etc. It’s not a requirement, just a best practice to make things easier.
Is there any current coupons? Thanks
@cayenneman That is more like smoking pork butts or brisket. I did a whole wild turkey at 225F and since there is so little fat on them to start with I used it to make a turkey noodle soup and that little bit of extra smoke on the turkey is a game changer! I used the bones to make the stock and it also had a little smokeyness to it, delicious. Don’t be afraid to run the smoker up 225-250F. Just make sure get it warm and dry before putting the smoke to it so it will stick better.
@rhjbarney That is the second time in recent weeks I have heard sausage referred to as Cigars, I like it and I am sure I can come up with a clever (for me at least) social media post about it. Also, I use a lot of the pictures our users post here on Walton’s Instagram, Facebook and twitter accounts and also Meratgistics Face Book accounts. Consider this my shameless plug to follow our social media accounts.
