It's insanely cold ... van hood won't open ... water splashed on wood top table in enclosed front porch froze on contact ... burrrrrrrr

Picked up two whole New York pork shoulders yesterday, ground them up today and yielded about 30 lb, made 20 lb of Indian sausages, another 10 lb for tomorrow but haven't decided on seasoning yet.  Used the enclosed front porch as super fridge, ground meat stayed almost semi frozen the whole time during various stages.

Found the meat grinder's sausage attachment, way easier than using thumb and funnel!  Figured out a way to twist the links with absolutely no blowout and no untwisting of previous links - pinch each link as soon as there's enough meat and rotate the round holding pan a few times.
