Do you re-hydrate the dried garlic before use, or do you just add it to the mince dry?

Hey Guys`

The other day when I saw redzeds` homemade adapter for his meat mixer inserted into
his meat grinder I thought that was "ingenious" and then Wondered if something like that could work with a sausage stuffer has anyone tried this ?

Thanks Guys as always Paul

I haven't seen what you're referring to, but the problem with powering a sausage stuffer with a meat mixer is that you would need either a clutch mechanism or a limit switch to keep from destroying things when the plunger gets to the bottom of the stuffer.

When cranking by hand, you feel when you're at the bottom. An electric motor won't know when to stop.

Paul-
Like Matterone said it would not work with a stuffer, needs a clutch and also the location on the stuffer is a problem. They do make electric motors with a clutch and foot pedal that bolt in to some stuffers.

Thanks Guys`

I guess there really is`nt any middle ground when it comes to stuffers, like there is with
meat grinders . I was hoping somebody has given it a thought . I thought if you can slide
in a mixer why not a stuffer. I purchased a 45 watt one made in China I broke it 1st time
out . Being 71 and in construction most of my life I should have known better, as one of
the members of this site says about experience & wisdom . :wink:

Thanks again Paul

Here is a fun video made at Olympia Provisions in Portland. I have Elias Cairo's book and his recipes are excellent.
