I know this has been discussed here multiple times, but I'm having trouble finding anything in the archives.

But anywho. My grinder motor took a big ole poop the other day. It was nothing real special. An old motor that had reduction pulleys on it. For the last few years it's been leaking oil like a sieve and kicking the breaker on it. Finally, in the middle of grinding a deer the other day it died for good.

So now I'm in the market for a new grinder. I don't need a big commercial unit. I'm looking for one that will grind a few deer and burger a year, have the ability to stuff sausage and pepperoni sticks. I don't want it to be so slow that it takes a day to grind 200 lbs of meat, but it also doesn't have to be so fast that it does it in 10 seconds either.

I'm looking to hopefully only spend around $300.

Any help would be great.

I have an attachment for our Kitchen Aid mixer that actually does a really good job. It's not real fast though.

I have that too and I don't like it. I guess I'm kind of spoiled by how good my old jury rigged grinder did things. It was dangerous as all get out, but it got the job done. It was nothing for us to put 600-700 lbs of deer and pork through that thing over a weekend and also stuff that much sausage and it would still be crying for more.

I'm sure it's not the weight but I don't really know much about it. I just looked on amazon for you. This seems like it's worth looking into. The reviews seem decent. I always look at reviews and then go on youtube type it in the search bar and there is usually someone that bought it and is doing a review. Just a suggestion

I bought a Cabelas Carnavore this fall. Its quite a rig. Its probable larger then I needed but me and my sons will put it to use for many years to come.

I just read that again and saw it is 660ln/hr.

That's small for a commercial grade unit. It's like 15"x15"x15".

Now I just gotta talk the wife into it.

Make sure you do your research first. I know I've never heard of that name brand but then again, Im' no expert on meat grinders.

I know what you mean there.

I bought an electric smoker without researching them that much. Got 6 uses out of it and the heating element went out. Got a new element and right now I'm working on my 20 use and it's still going good. But the reviews I read afterwards said it is a big problem with them. I now only use it for low temp smoking like cheese, eggs, and some jerky.

No thanks ADC. There ain't enough pure grain alcohol and bleach to clean that good enough for me.

You supposed to clean it? I just rinse it off, spray it down with WD40 and let it set in the shop for next round. lol

They will go through the deer fast if you could find a new one. They are not easy to find these days.

I am also looking for a grinder to do 2-3 deer a year. This is what I'm going to get, LEM big bite #8 grinder price is around 300 dollars, 1/2 hp,
7 lbs per minute. I watched some you tube videos on it and it seems like it would be good for my usage
