That looks great, i just got a meat grinder, and would love to try sausage. Where do you get your casings from?? I don't know that I have ever seen/looked for them before. Is there a chain store I could try? Thanks for reply!
Hi Nick - sausage making is a lot of fun and can be very rewarding but it is a LOT of work. It's generally easier when you have two sets of hands as well. For this type of sausage, no grinder is needed. Boudin is made by boiling pork and then I just chopped it with a knife. Your meat grinder probably came with sausage stuffing attachments, but I would just like to warn you that stuffing with a grinder makes it not very fun. It's frustrating and you definitely need two people if you are going to go that route. A dedicated stuffer (I prefer vertical) is well worth $100. As for the casings, you can buy them at chain stores like Cabelas, Bass Pro Shop, Gander Mountain, Tractor Supply, etc... They come in packages like this http://www.amazon.com/Home-Pack-Sausage ... or+sausage
They need to be rinsed inside and out very well before stuffing. Good luck!
