I purchased a stuffer off Amazon for under $100 and would never go back to using the grinder. With the grinder, it was always a two man job and took forever. The stuffer is much faster and have no problems doing it all by myself. Plus with a hand crank stuffer, no electricity usage and wear and tear on your grinder.

"Snack Sticks" from Hog Casings
Has anyone ever made snack stick style sticks from natural hog casings? I have allot of meat leftover and have ran out of collagen casings, but I have an un-used pack of hog casings. I just received a big bag of W Pepperoni Seasoning from Walton’s and am toying with the idea of using the hog casings instead of having to wait a week for more collagen casings to show up. The meat (elk) was ground on Sat and in the fridge. We prefer a cured/smoked/dried type snacking sausage to cooking brat style ones. What do you guys think?
Also, I always start out smoking my product, then finishing in the oven or dehydrator, but I’ve heard other people finish with smoke? What does everyone else do?
