Scale Question

Discussion in 'Slicers, Grinders, Tools, Equipment' started by magnum3672, Jul 8, 2011.

  1. So, I currently am about to make some BBB and I don't have a scale that will read more than 1 lb of meat at a time.  My only other options at this point are to use my bathroom scale (which goes to tenths of a lb and is digital) or to go out and buy one. But at this point I don't have any research on food safe scales and wouldn't know where to go around me to get a good inexpensive one.

    So what I'm asking is A. If my bathroom scale will cut it for the time being and B. if it won't cut it what should I look for in a scale.
  2. Use the bathroom scale. Weigh yourself holding the meat and then without and then subtract. Beats putting the meat where you put your feet!

  3. That was the plan, but I didn't know if it was accurate enough.  I'm probably making it much more complicated than it needs to be

    If you stay here long enough, your toy budget will be shattered.  You really need a good kitchen scale.  You need to be able to measure in pounds, ounces, kg, and grams as you progress to curing meats and making sausages.

    My scale is used by a couple of other members here.  Check out:

    There are many other good scales on the market as well.  Sooner or later you will want one.  Check out features like the removable control/display panel for when you weigh bigger items and still want to read the display.  Look forward to your future needs and be sure you get a scale that will be able to weigh the quantities large and small that will be in your future.

    Good luck and good smoking.
