I have a Kitchen Aid mixer with the grinder and stuffer attachment. I have been grinding the meat then putting on the stuffing tube and filling them. Any one that has stuffed with this set up knows that the ground meat doesn't go back through the grinder well.Can the stuffing tube be used during the first grind so that I would be grinding and stuffing at the same time? Thanks.

That might work, only problem I would forsee would be just plain pork hotdogs vs sausage. Even if you season the outside of the butt, I am not sure you would get a even taste throughout the sausage when it is ground. Just a thought.

Thanks for the reply. What i have been doing is cutting up the pork butt into small cubes and then seasoning and mixing them well and then they sit in the fridge over night. The next day is when i grind and stuff them. I have some ready to grind this afternoon. I will let ya all know if it works. I also guess that if it goes through the grinder twice it may mix better. ???

I would look into a stuffer as a seperater piece of equipment. It does not smear the meat but forces it with a piston makes stuffing an easy and quick process. Look at cabela's or the sausage maker for theese. If You plan on making lots of sausage it is the way to go.

I used to use the Kitchenaid for making sausage too. The secret is to put the meat back in the freezer and let it get good and cold again after grinding and mixing. It will be less sticky and will go through better, not great, just better. I broke the cheasy plastic stuffer tubes mid stuff and could not find replacements locally, so I bought a stuffer and haven't looked back.

I guess if I am going to continue to make sausage I had better plan on getting a decent stuffer. I put my ground meat in the freezer and it still was difficult to put through the grinder again. I only made 12 pounds and all went quickly until I had to stuff the casings. Thanks for the help. I will search out a stuffer!!!!

I bought a stuffer from northern tool. I think I researched it pretty good. Anyway the one I bought was the 15 pounder. It has steel gears. all the others I looked at were not. Here is the link. CF

That is a good stuffer. I have the meat mixer (20 pound one) it is also good. I bought mine at Cabela's but I think it is the exact same one (same price) 99.00

I have the 20 lb mixer from Cabela's. does a nice job on 20 lb batches. If You buy a larger mixer than that make sure it is motorised.
