I just got done using my guide series .75 HP grinder that I got from Gander Mtn back in 2006. I haven't used it in a couple years and it didn't miss a beat. Ground up a bunch of elk and pork like nothing and is pretty quiet too.

I bought the LEM Big Bite #12 (.75np) and it's a hoss. I'd heard too many horror stories about the smaller, mostly plastic grinders, so I spent quite a bit to get what I determined to be a pretty good one that isn't going to crap out on me. Just got a meat mixer for it too so I can do sausage a lot easier.

I really wanted a Weston but couldn't justify the extra $ for what appear to be equal grinders. I've heard good things about the new (2015+) Cabela's Carnivore series of grinders.

LEM or Cabela's commercial grinders are both good grinders. I recommend getting the biggest one that you can afford.

Depends on how many deer you think your going to grind.

We have a #32 from Sausagemaker, manual crank that was converted to an electric motor. Most of the time, we just use it manually. The grandkids can keep up with 2 adults cutting and trimming.

What's your budget? I might do 2 deer and 2-3 hogs per year, so I didn't need a huge commercial grinder. I got a Tasin TS-108 several years ago and it works really well, rarely clogs, etc. Back then is was about $100 but they're about $150 now. Read a lot of good stuff about the LEM brand. Academy seems to have the best prices. I'll probably pass my current grinder on to my brother and wait for the after-season clearance at Academy and get me one of the bigger LEM grinders.

If you are married, I'd recommend buying her the Kitchen Aid Mixer as a gift (for some brownie points). Then buy yourself the meat grinder and sausage attachment that goes on it. I use this, and it will grind meat faster than you can put it in the grinder. I process my own deer also. I cut up the meat and the kids want to put the meat into the grinder, so it speeds things up.

I have a Gander Mountain .75 hp grinder. It works great and is fast. I used it today to grind a deer. I spend more time washing it afterwards, than grinding. You get what you pay for. A quality grinder starts around $200.00 or so for a small one. I bought mine several years ago. I think it was about $300.00. One advantage of a bigger grinder is that you don't have to cut the meat into small pieces.

I have one of these but the meat clogs in it so bad, even partially frozen. Any thoughts on what to do?
