The wife and I spent a fabulous weekend down at the beach. Never would know that it is January here. Two days of 65°-70° at the beach and going to be nearly 70° today at home. While we were on the beach playing around we talked a bit about how we grind our own meat and that in order to do more, we really need something better than the Kitchenaid meat grinder attachment. So if a new grinder showed up at the door steps I wouldn't be in to much trouble! I have been looking at LEM, and coastal brands. Both I can get locally, and both are comparably priced. My main question I guess is would the #8 be good enough or is the #12 a more logical choice?
