i have been reading a lot of mixed reviews. it looks to me like the meat is going to ball up at one end of the mixer and how hard is it to get all the meat out. in my case, because of moving so slow i am looking at it like this. grind all meat and refrigerate it. clean and sanitize grinder, put away. mix all meat, refrigerate etc. stuff casings. this could take me 2-3 days and i was concerned about food safety. any comments greatly appreciated.
