Good reference. I’ll try the food grade grease and spray lube next timeThis might help.
I have a Gander Mountain meat grinder which, on occasion, leaves a tiny amount of a sludge like black residue on the meat while I'm grinding. It's never a lot, but enough to get my attention. It's not oil or any discharge from the motor. Almost looks like it could be a bit of metal shaving...www.smokingmeatforums.com
I believe it's metal to metal wear dust and the meat picks it up. probably from where the auger meets the motor. I've had it happen with my last grinder, and just picked out the pieces that I saw.
