My question is the two plates that come with it do I need some others? any suggestions? I do sausage/ breakfast sausage /and plan on grinding my own ground beef.
Thanks in advance
We usually grind twice with the coarse plate. We add half the seasoning to the meat then chill in the freezer. After the first grind we spread the meat on a large tray, add the rest of the seasoning and run it through again. Been working well for us so far. We used to add a little water and put the meat into the Kitchenaid mixer to mix it up in batches but our new method seems to work just fine.
Was the Big Bite worth the price diffs?
Yes! Pretty much anything that will fit down the tube gets pulled through, even on a second grind. I absolutely love mine. As if you couldn't tell. lol
Yeah try it, the coarse one works fine. I dont need to grind it twice at all. I mix in 80/20 ground beef from Costco in a lot of my recipes and I dont even grind the beef.
Heh, I grew up with a 1950s chop-rite #10 grinder, imagine a 6-year-old me struggling to turn a crank 1/3 my body height while my parents laughed at me.
Oh poor me. Wait, it gets worse. When the movers packed my stuff last August they packed the grinder and crank handle in separate boxes so I have the grinder on the shelf, without the handle. Maybe I'll have to substitute some oversize locking pliers for some funny pics.
