Hey friends, I haven't been around much lately, been working 6 days a week, 10 hours a day so I 'lurk' late at night, ...y'all been puttin' out some fine looking grub, ...congrats to all.
The auger in my "inexpensive" $45 meat grinder finally stripped out, so in desperation to grind some hamburger I broke out the old hand crank, ha! (I forgot what that was like) ...I looked on line and with the shipping the American grinders came to about the same price as this, I bought a Kenwood Pro Excel 2000 for about $300.
What a difference, it ground up 15# of partially frozen chuck on the slow speed faster than I could feed the meat into the hopper and the motor didn't slow down at all, they say it will grind 3 kg (6.6#) per minute and I believe it, that works out to 15# in 2 1/4 minutes, it took about 5, the only reason it took longer was the old man was tired and couldn't keep up with the grinder. LOL
Thursday is a holiday for us so I'm thinkin' some chicken sausage is soundin' mighty good.
