I know I may be considered "cheap", but I was shocked and amazed at how expensive they are. Granted, I was looking for one which also had an interchangeable milling head, not strictly a meat grinder, but if I remember right the ones I was looking at were upwards of $350. You should figure out a way to hook it up to an old bicycle, and make Woods pedal.

He should just go ahead and shat a gold brick, since it is the more likely scenario of the two.

I'm working on finding a way to get an old bike to run my ball mill. I was only half kidding.

not looking to get anything near $350 for a grinder at the camp. I already have access to a 1/2 hp. electric grinder/milling machine...I just want a simple hand crank to keep at the camp.$20-$50 range.

I was going to suggest hooking it up to a lawn mower. But you and gas and sauage might be a bad mix. Who wants 88 octane sausage?

Something is kind of scary about a website called sausagemaker.


I looked into grinders too, and they are stupidly expensive. Unless you can find one at a rummage sale somewhere, they won't be too cheap.

don't buy a cheap grinder. if the tolerances between the auger and cylinder are not tight enough it mashes the hell out of the meat and makes for a rather poor grind. you have to be able to pt the meat in and get it ground fast before it starts to warm and the fat softens

Im sure inda knows this, just an fyi

You might check pawn shops/antique stores if you want something cheap. I picked one up for like $7, and it does a bang up job. :beer:

There are tons of antique cast iron hand crank meat grinders on ebay. We just bought one for $20 to grind up chum on the fishing boat. It works great.

yep- knew that jehler....but "cheap" and "inexpensive" are not the same thing. I'm looking for brand recommendations if anyone has any.

I'm afraid to ask, but what, exactly, are you contemplating grinding at the camp???

planning ahead....after we try that new recipe I found for duck patties-we'll probably want that option on the camp menu. I'm thinkin it'll be a great alternative to kabobs for duck blind food.
