I have been making some duck snack sticks lately, and using the grinder to stuff the casings is a PITA. Has anyone had experience using the L shaped stuffers? Is it worth bucking up and buying the a vertical stuffer instead of the L shaped one? I will be using it for small sticks, so I don't think I'll need a huge capacity.

If you are making small quantites like me of 5 to 10 pound batches, you might think about this. I tried using the grinder and thought about buying a stuffer but chose another route. I use a jerky cannon to make my sticks. It holds 1 1/2 pounds of meat. I also purchased a 3/8" stuffer nozzle that fits on my jerky cannon. This works like a charm filling 19mm casings. However, I have chose to stay with forming sticks without the casings for two reasons. Sure they dont look as nice as when you put the meat in casings but looks are not everything. Taste is better without the casings and cost is reduced. The casings cost me $11. to stuff 14 pounds of meat. Since my smoker is set up to use racks instead of hanging, the casing free snack sticks are better for smoking with my horizontal smoker. Also, as long as I use 20% ground pork in my meat mix, the snack sticks hold together well.
If you still insist on stuffing casings, the jerky cannon works fine imo.
