    Posted this earlir in sausage, but might get better response here. I am planning on making my own sausage for a fattie. When I normally make bulk breakfast sausage, I use the 1/4" plate.

    My question is: Is this too course a grind to make a good fattie? Will it hold together or do I need to grind finer?

    I would think that would be ok, but I would not go any larger. I use 3/16 when I grind mine and seems to work well.
