That’s an outstanding first go!! The best part about it, like everything else bbq related is that you only improve!! I picked up the LEM 5lb stuffer for pretty cheap, maybe $130 and it worked great!!!

Looks like a good first try. Making sausage is one of the things I have always wanted to try.

Looks great. Yeah pick up the LEM 5 lb stuffer. I still use the KA grinder for 5 lb batches or so. But the stuffer makes life much easier.

Those look very nice. I have a 5-lb hand-crank stuffer from Cabela’s that works really well. Also one of their commercial-grade grinders, makes short work of a pile of protein.

I don’t rinse mine after stuffing, and I vacuum seal for freezing.

A really nice first effort, especially with the KitchenAid attachment.

For those interested in making bratwurst and don’t want to track down all the different spices that a lot of the recipes call for - I’ve had great luck with AC Legg bratwurst seasoning. Scale the mix to the amount of meat you’re stuffing and go. Really good flavor.

Great looking sausage mate
My skins are stored in salt in the Fridge.
Boil water adding salt untill you can add no more that dissolves.
Chill the brine and submerse the skins

Thank you everyone for the kind remarks. Since this original post, I did end up getting a 5lb hand crank stuffer. I forget the brand. It works much better than the KA attachment. The last batch, I decided to do 10lbs. I think in getting much better but still have some questions. First, the casings seemed to be getting kinda of stuck on the stuffer tube. Is there like a good grade grease people use at all? Second, I'm still getting a little air bubbles in the links. When I first begin I pump out enough sausage out through the casing before I tie the casing off, but still seem to get air bubbles. I prick all the sausages when I'm complete with a sausage pricker, but I've heard it's there air in the casings that can cause bacteria. Do I need to worry? Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
