- Assemble your grinder. Place the bowl next to the grinder and grind the pork butt into the bowl.
- Add the salt, pepper, cayenne, paprika, oregano, garlic, and vinegar. Knead the mixture for at least 5 minutes.
- Cook a test piece, taste and adjust the seasonings as preferred, then refrigerate the remaining mix.
- Assemble your stuffer. Lubricate the horn and slide the casing onto it. Dampen your work surface with water. Stuff the meat into the casing, tying off the open ends at the beginning and end.
