***EDIT- I went ahead and made a batch. ***

I know it's not BBF related, but I thought I would try it anyway. I am tired of having to borrow my Dad's stuffer. ANybody have one out in the shed they want to get rid of?

thanks

Funny you mention, I just bought a LEM 5lber after fighting with trying to run it through a grinder when stuffing Brats. What a difference, I did 20lbs in an hour the other night, that would have taken four hours with the grinder alone.

Also, I just put the finishing touches on a homebuilt grinder. Wife's uncle had a #22 ChopRite laying around, I got a pulley for it and hooked it up to a 1hp 1725rpm motor. Built enough "gear" reduction into it using pillow blocks to get it down to 120rpm on the crank. Turned out pretty good, yet to actually grind with it, spent all day trying to find a 18" V-belt.

My Dad has an old 6 qt enterprise and it works great.

I have a #32 grinder on a 1725 rpm motor with a 1" pulley on the motor and a 12" pulley on the grinder. That comes up to about 140 rpm. How did you get it down to 120?

I would have liked to have found 1" pulleys, then I wouldn't have had to mess with the countershaft setup. My memory was a bit off, I'm at 130rpm, I had a few pulleys laying around from God knows where, so I did the best I could with what was available locally.

I have a 2" on the motor, to a 4" on the counter shaft. The other pulley is a 2", driving the 13" on the grinder. I was worried about belt wrap on the little 2" driving the 13" as they're a bit close to each other, but I tried to stall it last night and it's got plenty of oomph. Should work out just fine, and it's a lot better then some Taiwanese junk grinder I'd get for the same cash I have tied up in this.

Well I borrowed my Dad's stuffer again, but we made a lot of klobasa! All together 150# of seasoned suasage. 25 pounds went to pan sausage and 125 was stuffed into hog guts (casings) and smoked. I used 75 pounds deer meat, 30 pounds domestic hog meat, and 45 pounds wild hog which I shot last Thursday night. The pan sausage is for breakfast, so I added sage. It will be vac sealed today. I started smoking the links this morning and they will be ready in a few hours. 30 of the links will stay in the smoke house until dried completely (a few days) for dried sausage. The other 85 will get about 4 hours of smoke.

here is my Dad's old 4 qt enterprise stuffer. It has made us thousands of pounds of Klobase



here is the grinder steup I just made/bought. A #32 grinder, a 1725 rpm 1/2 hp motor, a 1/2" pulley, and a 12" pulley. It worked better than I thought.



this is a pic of my wife filling the stuffer. This is an old pic from last year. notice in the pic I have my Dad's grinder. It is a #32 with a 1 hp motor and a 39:1 inline gear reducer. That setup is perfect, but I can't afford the gear reducer (~$300-$400)



here are the links hanging in my smokehouse. I threw it together last week. My old smoke house was made out of a 5' wide grain bin and it worked great, but a summer storm with high winds lifted it off the ground and flung it across the field into a big oak tree about 100 yards away. My new one is anchored down :wink:





getting the fire started for the smoke. Inside temps never get above 100 deg F. You don't want to cook it- you want to smoke it only.



you can kinda see the smoke starting to come out. I use post oak or mesquite. This time it is post oak.

Hey guys if your looking for a grinder try some of the local grocery store actions when they go out of business you can get them for about two to three hundred bucks and you can stuff right off the grinder it will make your live a lot easier plus you can grind your own burger and sell it to your friends and pay for your machine. Best machines are Hobart's they last forever, plus they mite have stuffer also. Any questions in this area give me a shout this is what I do and am more than happy to help. :D Ben
