Default Grinder Recommendations

Hello,

After standing in front of our Kitchen-Aid grinder attachment for many more hours than expected last year, I've decided that getting a better/faster grinder is necessary.

What grinder do you use and/or recommend?

LEM Big bite, I bought the 12 and yes, it is expensive. I use it to grind deer, make sausages and bologna. I ahve the 25# mixing attachment and now even the juicer to do tomatoes for canning.

How much meat, how many animals a year do you process? Usually the only time I use my grinder is during dear season. Some years I kill 3-4 some years only one. By the time I get out the loins and blackstrap and take some meat in for summer sausage I might only grind 15-20 pounds at a time. For that amount I have a small 100.00 grinder from Cabelas and it works fine. If you are grinding 100 lbs at a time, several times a year then a larger one will be needed. Let us know what your usage is and you will get better recommendations.

I concur. I love my LEM. I have an older bass pro model (all stainless) 1/3hp with the #10 grinder. I can't see needing anything bigger than a 1/2 hp for residential use it's fast and powerful! HIGHLY recommend a foot switch worth every penny.

The juicer has been on my list to get since I'm growing tomatoes. Can't wait to can lots of sauce.
