You can use the Poly Tubing for burgers like that but A) they are expensive as they come in large quantities and are designed for commercial productions and B) they are too big. So, YooperDog suggestion of using the 3" casings is a good one. I Played around with another insert for the Walton's Quick Patty Maker but I couldn’t make it work. It might be possible to 3-d print? pr0wlunwoof did we ever do anything with this? I thought we had looked at doing it but I can’t remember where we left off?
Ben W With hotdogs I would suggest you add a little more water than what is called for and keep the meat super cold. That should help, I think Austin used this a long time ago for hot-dogs but I never have.
twigg267 If you are looking for something similar to the Jimmy Deans with some heat go with the Holy Regular Pork Sausage, that is very close to the taste but it doesn’t have much heat. For some heat I would add some Xtra Hot Ground Red Pepper Shaker, just be careful with this as it is very hot! It’s suggested use is 3 oz to 100 lb of meat, so for a 10 lb batch of breakfast sausage you would use .3 of an oz or 8.5 grams and that is the upper level.
Anytime you are adding exta ingredients to a prepackaged seasoning mix I would suggest starting out low and then playing around with it until you have reached the desired result!
