The sausages are submerged in the beans and broth. They come out so tender and flavourful it's a crime.

It turned out pretty damn good. The all important crust of rendered gelatin was dark and thick, coating the skin on the ducks legs, as well as all the exposed top of the bean/veggie melange. The skin was super crispy and it took a serving spoon and pair of tongs to lift the legs without falling apart as they were so tender.

17.5 lb Wagyy brisket trimmed and rub applied. I trimmed more aggressively than usual for no reason other than I was having fun. Probably took 2lbs off.

I'm freezing the fat to incorporate into something down the road. No idea what I'm going to do with it, so if someone has suggestions I would love to hear. Thought about some ground beef for burgers and mixing with a cheap cut of other wagyu.

You need a dedicated grinder. Ain't nothing like grinding 10# of meat in a few minutes. Save that fat for ground beef or maybe try making some sausages (after you buy your grinder.)

That was my thought, tell the wife it's a waste of money to throw it out and we need a grinder.

This is the kind of stuff I pray to find at thrift stores. They have no idea how to price it.

I’m considering getting the Kitchen Aid attachment, which I know isn’t ideal but it’s cheaper and smaller.

The metal KitchenAid one is decent, especially if you want to do small batches.

I have a hand crank #10 grinder and it will blow through meat fast (no need to go electric... And easier to put the whole thing in the freezer pre-grind). But if you just want a pound or two, you end up with a lot of waste.
