It is sort of on topic but I am trying to buy a sausage stuffer here in Thailand.

 

Unfortunately I live in rural Khampaeng Phet and there is nothing around here, not even at the new Robinsons that opened a couple of months ago.

 

I am looking for a hand cranked horizontal or vertical model, perhaps 1.5 or 2kg capacity with a nozzle of 28 mm diameter and perhaps 180mm long.

 

I can use my grinder but the nozzle is cone shaped and if I push the skin on too hard it splits. I can only get a couple of sausages filled before it runs out and I have to reload the skins. The grinder/stuffer I use is a George Foreman model and it is difficult to load the mince and ram it down as the top tray keeps rising to let air into the stuffer.

 

I am looking for something like these below.

 

If anybody has any idea can they please post it or pm me?

 

Thanks in hope.

Lazada.... fill yer boots.....   Sausage maker

 

That is where I have been but I was hoping that there would be a place in Thailand That does them.

 

After all there are a lot of Thai and farang suasages sold in the country so somebody must be making them.

 

I am also looking for butchers twine #4 size. In the UK it is about £.50 a roll and on Lazada over 2,000 baht.

Bill, I have just recently discovered Ali Express, I have just searched for sausage string and they sell it at 27 baht, it won't let me provide a link unfortunately. Many other items to do with sausages, might be worth a look.

Thank you for that link. I had a quick scan and it looks interesting so I will have a better look later.

Looking just ready for some HP sauce.. deelish.

 

I have tried similar but with puff pastry but always the filling (cheese n onion & mince and onion) seemed to seep out during baking. Too wet i guess. 

I always precook the pie filling in a saucepan until thick and gloopy.

Puff pastry .... too hard to make at home ...... always short crust pastry, just flour/fat/water.

I have taken a look. The deliveries seem to be only USA. Have I missed something? Sorry if I'm being stupid.lol

Hi, I'm new to Ali Express, but a quick check shows that most of their goods come from China, I know the price is shown in dollars but when you order an item it is in baht. Maybe someone more knowledgable experience can concur. I have ordered about 6 items and have confirmation that the items have been shipped.

There is a TV topic already running on AliExpress.

I have just read the thread above and had a look at sausage stuffers and butchers twine so I will give it a go next week.

 

Thanks again.

How about the casings? Lots on there.

 

 

I am OK with collagen casings at the moment.

 

My problem is fat fingers and no butchers twine so I am tying the sausages off with the casing and wasting a lot of the casing.

 

OTOH the sausages are great.

 

I have some friends who go back to the UK and I generally ask nicely if they can bring back a kg of sausage herbs and casings.

 

I had thought of asking someone to bring me a stuffer back but they are relatively heavy.

 

Ali Express looks like the best bet at the moment for sundries and Weschenfelders in Nothumberland have greta sausage mixes but they will not ship to Thailand as there are too many problems involved.

I tried pastry once here and it was a disaster, i think my kitchen is too hot even though i chilled things, so i cheat and buy frozen puff pastry from foodland.

 

Which fat do you use?, is it shortening?

 

Cheers.

I just use palm oil margarine 45bht/Kg from yok.
No need to chill or mess about, mix the flour and marg (just enough to look a little yellow), than add enough water to make a stiff dough.
Roll out with plenty of flour, fold over the filling and seal the edge with milk.
For a healthier variety one can use the Rice bran oil shortening from King Brand.
Available at many supermarkets.
