Re: Game processing
Nothing better than bringing home your own meat then processing it at home knowing the quality that goes into it!!
I ran a large wildgame processing plant for several years and since then my buddy and I have been processing game for our families and friends, we still run 20+ elk and the same number of deer through with a very modest amount of equipment.
Look at the Cabelas for your grinder, it's thee best grinder available for the money, I have the #32 and I've probably put 150+ elk through it and it's been SOLID! I would advise to get a second knife and keep the knife and plates together, they will run longer between sharpenings. This grinder is heavy duty, it's the closest one I've ran close to the commercial units I had, the reverse switch is handy when swapping plates.
The LEM mixer is excellent, having it tilt to dump makes it much easier for unloading and it breaks down for cleaning, very good tool! The LEM brown sugar ham kit is INCREDIBLE when you pump up a deer or elk tender loin and smoke it!!!!!
I get a lot of goodies at butcher-packer dot com!
