    So, today I finally broke out the grinder that I bought when Gander Mountain was going out of business. It works like a champ and ground up the 4.5lbs of meat without any issue. Where I have a question is, when running the meat through the stuffing tube, I filled 2 full casings and a partial third, but there was still a lot of meat in the grinding head. What does anyone else do to push that meat through and into the casing? I basically pulled it all apart and stuffed the last bit by hand through the tube. There has to be an easier way to get all of the meat pushed through.

    I use a vertical stuffer . I bet you will too in time . When I didn't have the stuffer I used a couple of slices of bread to push the meat out . Just know when to stop .

    Yep, Bread is a classic. Dad would take the last meat from the grinder/tube and cook off a pattie or two as a Butchers Treat...JJ
