Well I am glad to hear that about the casing. It really isn’t that bad, and I figured it was because it was shrinking. I just wasn’t sure if it was an issue or not. Sounds like it isn’t and that things are going quite to plan with my first attempt. Hopefully the results will be good when I get to check in a few weeks!
I actually have a jerky gun myself, but it is fairly small and I imagine it would be a bit time consuming as I have found my jerky gun is actually a bit difficult to load, although without a strict need to remove every air bubble as I assume I wouldnt need to for sausage stuffing, it might be a bit easier.
I found that the kitchenaid grinder worked ok, except that the fat and sinew clogged it up quite a bit and it continually needed to be cleaned. The stuffer attachment was the real problem, while it was mildly challenging to actually stuff the casings, the hardest part was getting the meat into the attachment, and because of that it took forever. So once this batch is finished I will look into alternate grinding and stuffing tools.
