    That looks to be close to 100 pounds of butts if those are 2 packs!

    I'll be watching this for sure!

    My back hurts just thinking about that many at one go!

    That would wear my ass out just deboning and cutting up grinder ready.

    I'm definitely wanting to watch. Any heat problems?

    right off the bat i made a rookie mistake ,  we deboned and ground 6 butts last night and seasoned them to marry the flavor overnight

     then 1st thing this morning we started stuffing , the meat was waaaay to cold and that made it to hard for the cordless to handle so

    i had to do the 1st 50 lbs by hand and it was still hard , today we have roughly 100 lbs done but not smoked , just plain ran out of room

     so the 1st thing i have to do Sunday morning is put a load on the smoker in order to get room to debone , grind and season the last 7 butts

    so far the deboning has been the worst of it

    i'm losing a tad over 2 lbs per 50  after deboning , so not bad there

    That is a Herculean effort for just the 2 of you! I'm not familiar with your equipment, what size is your grinder?

    Looking forward to some end results!

    i have no idea what size the grinder is , its just a cheap one we bought from harbor freight , but it works great , no complaints here

     i don't cube the  meat,i cut it into long strips and the grinder pretty much feeds itself

    out of 147.74 lbs of Boston BUTTS the bones weighed 7.93 lbs .  

    i think its time to sharpen the grinder blade's  but i have no idea how ...lol

    we have ground probably  north of 300 lbs  of meat since we bought the grinder . so i figure its time to sharpen them
