Thanks to both of you for getting back to me. At this stage I’m just trying to get as much information as possible from experienced sausage makers. Once my new grinder from Walton’s comes in I’m going to be doing a lot of experimenting myself.
It makes sense that making sausage using strictly thighs would create the best tasting end product.
I didn’t really think about the water added to store bought chicken playing into the binding properties of the mixture. That would definately be a guessing game when adding Sure Gel. Having the ability to grow or at least have access to fresh broilers would probobly bring some consistency to the mix.

RE: Roll Call (Start Here First)
This is Clay from NC and I just ordered my first grinder from Walton’s, a Weston Pro #12. I hunt deer and have gotten tired of paying to processor to grind the deer that I don’t cut into roasts myself so I took the leap into home grinding. I also help my church make about 600lbs of sausage twice a year and I know the addition of my grinder will speed up the process. Sometime soon I’ll be building my smokehouse to broaden my sausage making skills to include smoked sausage along with the many other varieties. Once I get rolling good I hope that this site can help with any questions that I have.
