Rytek's book is great....I also recommend "Charcuterie" by Ruhlman and Polcyn if you want to get into curing.

I'm using a grinder from Northern Tools, and I need to get a new stuffer. I tried a horn stuffer, but it didn't really work all that well for me.

I got this for myself for Christmas. Feels very sturdy. I'm very satisfied with the value!

I'm giving it a try in the next week on a batch of brats.

I used my mini once already for some brats. It is awesome. Five brats for dinner in no time. I am making some Hot Italians later this week.

Do you think one could repurpose one of those 5-lb stuffers as a cheese/fruit press? I don't think I could sell the wife on a dedicated piece of equipment just for sausage, but if we could use it for several things maybe I could swing it.

Anyone know what the little round plate is for on the bottom side of the piston? This metal plate is about the size of a silver dollar and loosely hangs under the nylon piston / plunger. It's not identified on the 1-page manual.

That is the vent. As you press, excess air int he head space bleeds out, then when it hits the meat it seals and allows a nice even press. It worked very well for me and is wy nicer than the screw type bleeds I have used before.
