No kidding. You end up with a slimy mess of something which barely resembles ground meat.

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.

Seriously, though, I would go with what Rick said- an old, used cast iron grinder. I don't think the newer lighter ones can hold a match to them, even for occasional use.

the handle on the damn thing wasn't designed to maximally leverage the torque output of a 10 year old. It sucked worse than no cartoons on Saturday morning.

A word about cheap grinders: I've been using the same little electric Rival grinder since the mid '70s to grind the biggest part of three or four deer most years, and the "secret" to keeping it cutting smoothly (knock wood) has been shimming the spring that presses blade against plate for added pressure. Before figuring out the need for that shim, I wasted a whole lot of time cleaning sinew from and sharpening blade and plate on a flat wetstone. Might have cussed some, too. Now I just bag burger.

I imagine the tolerences get a little loose after a few sharpenings...good tip Rick, thanks! :thumbsup:

guess I might as well post up the recipe I'm lookin forward to trying....
(A John Folse recipe.)

Praline Duck Patties

4 boneless, skinless duck breasts
3 TBSPS Butter
1/2 cup diced onion
1/4 cup diced celery
1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
2 TBSPS minced garlic
1/2 cup chopped parsley
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1/2 cup seasoned Italian bread crumbs
salt and black pepper to taste
granulated garlic to taste
1 egg
1 cup milk
1 cup water
1 cup vegatable oil
1 cups pecan flour or finely chopped toasted pecans

to cook:
In a medium skillet, melt butter over med.-high heat. Add onions, celery, bell pepper, minced garlic, parsley and green onions and saute 3-5 minutes until wilted. Remove from heat and set aside. In a food processor, mince duck breasts to a sausage like consistency. Transfer minced duck meat into a large mixing bowl. Stir in cooked veggies and Bread crumbs. season to taste with salt, black pepper and granulated garlic. Form meat into 4 patties (~2" wide and 1/2" thick) then set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together egg, water, and milk and set aside. In a large cast iron skillet, heat oil over med. high heat. Dip patties in egg wash and then in toasted pecans Fry approx. 10 minutes or until golden brown.



I might add a little hot sauce to it though....
Bet it would be good with some camp hashbrowns on the side!! :yes:

I've got two chicken breasts and a deer steak thawed in the fridge waiting to be cooked. That seasoning and recipe sounds so good I may run them all through the grinder together and try it with that. I think I've got everything else except the peppers.

They are more expensive, aren't they?

Well, I'm not a huge fan of cooked peppers anyway. :lol3:

Got hungry reading the recipe. (Good thing some goose heart and gizzard fricassee just went in the microwave.) Add me to the list anxious to hear how it turns out.

Was just going through the cupboard getting the ingredients together, and realized that the bag I thought was pecans is actually walnuts. Looks like a trip to the store, after all.

I have an antique one, Enterprise # 10.

It came out of my great grandmothers home place. It's a duck grinding machine, looks like ground beef when it comes out.
