Rinse meat before grinding
 
Is it ok to rinse venison before grinding to get rest of hair/dirt/sand off meat? Will it affect the meat?

You can but you will want it dry when you grind it.

Agree with rockport. I rinse then put in a colander to drain. And I pat dry with paper towel.

I also trim the heck out of my meat. All gristle, tallow, and any sinew or membrane I remove.

Guess you learn as you go. Iíll still eat it. It was pretty dry when I tossed it in grinder.

First time ever grinding my own.

I rinse it if it needs it . I don't know the real answer. But I would rather rinse the junk off than leave it on.

The best solution is to keep it clean in the first place .But that doesn't always work out.

Rinse it off to remove dirt and then throw in the freezer for a short while to firm it up. I always grind semi frozen meat.

This will be my first year grinding my own meat as well. Curious, why do u always grind it semi frozen?

The meat feeds MUCH easier through the grinder that way .

I lay mine out on cookie sheets and put in freezer . Until they firm up a little. Then pull them out and grind them while the next trays freeze.

I only rinse if it is excessively dirty and that doesn't happen often. I never drag a deer and usually bone them where they hit the ground and the meat goes straight into clean bags and then the cooler. I pick the hair off as I get it pieced down for the grinder and have at it. never had a complaint so I'll keep going as is.
