I hear ya Bass_Hunter. I have one of them tenderizor deals that makes cube steak as well as a grinder. We save scraps and a friend thats a butcher gets us beef fat to mix and grind for burger as well as pork fat to mix and make sausage. For a few bucks several hunters can go together and purchase teh equipment to do it all yourself. In my book it is much better when I do it myself.
This year I'm gonna buy some casings and make link sausage.
