The hand me down #8 Weston a friend gave me finally bit the dust. I knew it was dying last time out so I pulled the trigger on the LEM #8 big bite. They had a 20% off sale that still brought it to me cheaper than amazon and with stupid fast shipping. Holy cow is this thing a beefcake compared to that old Weston. The grinding head weighs a ton compared. And to think I almost bought the #12 as not to under size.

This thing is gonna finally push me into full blown sausage making. First up, hot breakfast sausage, next? Who knows.


Look what I found on the porch.

Nice. Where is the 20% off sale? I've been looking at them and that might push me over the edge.
A trick I learned.

If you to to the LEM site, put a grinder in your cart then log out in a day or 2 they send you a discount to come back, when I did this with my vac they sent a 10% off, I waited a day then she sent a 20% off.

Well alrighty, I'm going to do that and see, thanks...

There's a few places that do it. I try just about every time I buy from a new place.

Also, holy cow, this thing is an animal. That was a 9 lb butt not long ago.

Dont know if any of you have a Bomgaars near you. Ours had the #8 duel grind attachment only for $128, down from $168
 
Stopped at Academy Sports today as they USED to carry LEM products. Shopping for a new grinder. Hmm, local store (central Florida) only carries Meat Your Maker brand now.

As long as we don't hear on the news about mysterious disappearing farm animals or spouses?

Old-ish thread but I'm posting a big thank you anyway!

I came here wanting to find out what to look for in a grinder and sausage maker. This LEM looks like it'll do the trick. Thank you!!

Happy New Year!

Murph, I have the #5, and it does everything I ask of it. I'm sure the #8 will exceed your expectations. Good luck.
Okie, thanks for the info; that's incredibly helpful.

It's just me and my wife and we ain't grinding up any wild animals. Just a roast here and there for burgers, some sausages, and absolutely some jerky every couple of weeks.

I didn't want to buy more machine than I needed but the diff between the #8 and your #5 is only $50 bucks...

Now I'm wondering about their Mighty Bite #8 for $100 bucks less than your #5.

Man, I hate this game.... 🙃
