Default Meat Grinder

I've had 4 deer processed this year, and getting ready to have an axis made into burger. I PLAN, on building a smoke house with the help of swampranger and his kids, (they don't know about this yet), but until then I'm stuck getting my meat processed. Since I'm just making burger, I figured I could do this myself. Any recommendations on a meat grinder for hamburger?

Goto alliedkenco.com. Sounds like you are going to do around 10 critters a year. I'd invest in something quality. I did this 15 years ago and glad I did.

We have the 1 3/4 HP cabelas grinder and it has been great. We do 15-20 deer a year though.

For your numbers I would but he 1 hp.

I also recommend a foot pedal!

I bought the 1/2 hp one from Northern Tool and it's worked great for me for a lot of years now. It's less than $100 right now. It will grind about as fast as I can put the meat in, which is all I really need for 5 or 6 hogs and deer per year. You can spend a lot more, but unless you're killing a whole lot of animals, it's probably not worth the extra expense to save yourself five or ten minutes per animal. They all do the same thing in the end... turn chunks of meat into ground meat. It's just a matter of how fast they do it.

cabelas! I have the 1HP and it does great, but I would recommend bigger, for no other reason than bigger has to be better

I've got the 1HP Cabelas commercial grade and couldn't imagine needing bigger. But that being said, we do 4 or 5 deer a year, not 20 like others have said. I fed the grinder an entire buck backstrap one time and it darn near jerked it out of my hand it grinded it so fast.

I got the kitchenaid FGA food grinder attachment for my wife's mixer and did hind quarters last night. It was about $35

x2. If you have a kitchen aid, buy the attachments.

If you want to be cheaper, and I was for 5 years, the Northern tool is a serviceable grinder. Mine burned up after 5 years but at that price it was certainly replaceable. Luckily Cabelas had their annual big sale grinder sale post Christmas that year and I took it and some gift cards and did it right. I love the 1HP unit they sale. It is a meat eating and stuffing summidge. Add a footpedal and its hard to beat without going larger and more expensive..

If you don't have ideas for a smokehouse here is one I posted several years ago. If I could make any improvements on this, I'd enlarge this one to 6 foot wide instead of 44x44. The idea was to make it semi-portable so we could do sausage at several of our houses in DFW rotating the event host place every year. I'm the only one doing sausage at all anymore of my original group so since its more permanent now, I wish it was a little wider for more capacity. Right now its good for 300-325 lbs.

I bought this one from Sportsmans Guide and mounted it on a stand with a motor and belt. I'm not sure of the motor size, but it will grind large chunks of meat as fast as you can feed it.
