Whenever grinding meat I will see black pieces of meat in the grind. Ive noticed when using the kitchen-aid or #12 grinder. I wish I knew what to do to prevent it.

What kind of meat are you grinding or is it any and all meat that has them

This might help.

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.

Good reference. I’ll try the food grade grease and spray lube next time

You definitely need the food grease on the thrust bearing and the attachment to motor interface. It'll keep your motor cooler and reduce the friction that causes metal wear.
