What Tools Will You Need When Making Sausage


Making sausage is a great way to pass the time and to use up a lot of leftover meat and spices. When creating sausage you can allow your creativity flow since there is no right or wrong way to making it.


The first tool you will need is a manual meat grinder. You can go ahead and use an electric one but if you really want to get your hands dirty manual will do the trick. When you have your meat grinder setup, make sure it is clean and ready for the meat.

Make sure you are wearing gloves when making sausage

When grinding meat, it is very important that your hands are clean. Make sure you wash them with soap and water before preparing the meat. You can also use rubbing alcohol to sanitize your hands before handling the meat.

Stand Mixer

A stand mixer comes in handy when mixing larger amounts of sausage. Make sure the stand mixer is not overloaded and has all its attachments in place. A stand mixer will also help you to mix your spices with the meat properly and evenly.

Beef Tongs

Tongs are a great tool when working with raw meat. You can use them when grabbing the sausages from the grinder and even when your sausages are cooking. Tongs are important for making sure you don’t stick your hands in the pan anytime it’s hot.

Sausage Stuffer

You can stuff the sausage with a funnel but why not make it easier on yourself and purchase a sausage stuffer. They come in handy, especially if you need to make a lot of sausage really fast.

Cooking Stuff

Sausage needs to be cooked in order to taste good and be eaten safely. Make sure when cooking your sausage you have all the right utensils for cooking it. A pan, oven mitts, grease splatters and tongs are a must when making sausage.
