Over the years, being a graphic artist, Iâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]ve developed a tech of arthritis in my right hand (no biggie), but when Iâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]m mixing spices in my coarse ground sausage meat the cold damn near kills me! I wonder if using my wifeâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]s heavy duty KitchenAid mixer with that big paddle would be able to do a righteous job. I only mix 8-10 lbs. at any given time anyways. Anybody tried this?
Don't want you to end up in the doggie den - I noticed you said "my wifeâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]s heavy duty KitchenAid mixer!"
I've been looking at buying one of those meat mixers. I think you can get a cheap one for around $100 - 150. Sure it is a unitasker but I have to admit I hate mixing the spices into the freezing meat.

Anyone have a mixer like I am talking about? How do you like it?
I use a pair of those plastic Doctor gloves under a pair of plastic kitchen gloves and it helps. Other wise my hands just ache for hours after.
Howdy, there folks. New guy here. I was just looking for a good topic to
join in on. I have the same mixer and attachment. I make alot of jerky mainly slab but some smoked ground jerky also. I had the same idea that
Up in Smoke did. Tried it. Worked great. No more cold hands. Plus it's a great time saver.
I use one of the mixers that Bass Pro and Cabelas carry. There about a $100.00 plus the usual taxes
It holds about 8-10 lbs and you crank it by hand.
Rectangular sssstainless steel bin ( sorry musta sssstuddered there) Easy to clean and take apart.
It does save the hands from gettin cold but it can get you a sore shoulder
I've looked at those....drooled a bit....but have not gotten momma to buy into it yet.......amazingly enough she was the one who said I had to buy that turkey fryer the other night....hummmmmmmmm
Thanks Gremlin I think I will have to look into those. I make a lot of sausage and sticks and usually in 25 lbs batches so having something like that to do the mixing would be great.
