Sorry...no pics...Next time, I'll get one...Also, try a little milk powder. It helps with the emulsion. This is all assuming you can get an emulsion with your recipe. I'm no expert in charcuterie, I just know that I was told if it falls apart I failed with my emulsion.

It's either a 60 or 80qt hobart. But we form the emulsion by hand. 2 people, 2 wooden spoons. Stir like crazy.

Unfortunately no. Mostly bread comes out of the Hobart. That and ground beef for burgers. It's a special day when we can make sausage. Although part of the masochist in me wants to do a bratwurst special on the roof top bar.

When I'm making emulsified meats, I just put it in my cuisinart food processor a bit at a time. The trick is to keep the meat cold while processing. What I do is take several cups of crushed ice and put it through the food processor first, so that I have a bowl of fine snow set aside. Then I mix some in with the meat in the processor (about 3 parts meat to 1 part snow). This will also add a little airyness to the finished product, and it will hold together nicely.

Thanks. That is exactly what I will do.

Another tip when making the sausages is to spin every other sausage, instead of every sausage as your guys were doing it. Finished sausage... enough filled casing for two sausages, but pinche with your fingers in both places and spin. This way each spin makes two sausages, and doesn't mess with the twist in between. Hope this makes sense.
