    Meat grinder, whats everyone use???

    Got a $30 burley grinder up at the bach for munching kina/fish heads/cray carcasses into burley, got me thinking it would probly do a good job on the scrappy cuts of venison at the bottom of my freezer I never get around to doing anything with.

    Anybody else mince their own meat was thinking about getting another grinder for meat?

    Nah they will be sweet, call in and have a chat. How many kg you got?
    By the time you buy a mincer and shit plus you might want sausages they come out on top. Unless you have heaps all the time. Be cheap as for mince and a few buck a kg for bangers.

    I took in 9kgs of venison scrap cuts and stuff that had been at the bottom of the freezer for awhile into the Export Meat Warehouse.

    Stu turned this into about 15kgs of sausages.

    More sausages than I could ever eat in a year.

    They were bloody nice but ended up giving most away because there was just too many.

    Cheers

    find a butcher that does home kills/wild game.
    they usually do it one or maybe two days a week as everything needs to be seriously cleaned from wild to farmed meats.
    take it in on the day they do stuff making sure its thawed.
    they will usually want 20 kilo min to do sausages,patties,salami etc

    i usually wait till i have two or three double bagged pack and save bags chocka.

    if bulked as above take it out of freezer 30 hours before drop off or it will still be frozen solid.

    don't include any tendons, blood or bullet/bone fragments.

    I got a #32 alloy mincer from trade me, so far so good. its got a fairly fine cut plate.
    but iv done many rabbits whole, bones and all. I just run it by hand. (dog food)

    for human grade iv used the food processor, but havnt done a lot. the mincer would work fine if you were keen.

    A mincer add on to my wife's kenwood cake mixer thingy is the shit. Was cheaper to get on uk amazon than locally...delivered so guess where I went.... I try to support local when I can but $40 difference is quite a a bit. Hell that's a box or two of ammo or hunting petrol. The convenience of making your own mince is good as we live out of town so it's worth for us to have one.

    I have an old Spong mincer that stands on the bench top, it's a hand grinder but it doesn't take that much effort, I use it for beef and venison! Something like $30 off Tradme.

    Most Home Kill butchers will do it. I brought a hand grinder a few years back - pain in the ass!

    Recently brought an electric mincer/sausage maker on 1-day sale. Much better, just need to ensure any stringy, sinew is removed. Also, chilled meat goes through better.
