Question Sausage stuffer questions

Im thinking of asking for a sausage maker for christmas. I have a professional Kitchenaid mixer. Should i get the stuffer that is made for the kitchen aid? or should i go with one from cabelas? Im looking at making deer sausage and other sausage as i figure it out. i want one that is easy to use,. but still make a great product.

The stuffer for the Kitchenaid sucks if you ask me. I used it once and never again. We have the professional mixer, too. So lots of power. Just didn't seem to hold up to the job very well.

Get one with metal works (the housing, screw, and cutting plate). If you stick them in the freezer before grinding sausage you will have a lot less problem with the cutting plate plugging up from the stringy stuff. I used to have a plastic one and had a heck of a time. Don't know if the Kitchen Aid is metal or not.

Ok. Now i have the meat grinder attachement for the kitchen aid. Would that be essentially the same thing? would i just need the sausage stuffer parts? the tubes? and casings?

Interesting tip.

The plates and auger are metal in the kitchenaid.

Forget the sausage stuffer and get the ice cream attachment. We got one for my aunt and uncle a few years ago. Its pretty cool.

Yep. You can get the tubes at Cabella's or Bass Pro, or Kohl's, or most any store that sells kitchen aid. The casings are a bit of a problem for me, but you are in Texas, you can probably get them at the corner gas station.

There you go! Didn't realize you had the grinder. The tube is a cheap little plastic piece. Get it if you have the rest. The pasta rollers rock, too.

I wonder if you could grind your own spices with the mill attachment. Anyone ever use it?

I use a cheap coffee grinder. It leaves some big chunks though. I just run them through a sieve and regrind the chunks.

Same here. Wonder if the mill attachment would create a finer grind?

I don't know about your coffee grinder but mine is plenty fine, especially if it is a potent spice, when I pop the top even if I let it sit for few minutes.

If you have the grinder go with the tube for about $10. If you have a 20% off coupon from Bed Bath & Beyond etc... If you want to go manual take a look at Northerntool.com. They have some decent stuff at a nice price.
