Looking for suggestions as I'm still learning, last year I did the following:

Sausage: Grind 1/2" first then 1/4" to finish

Snack Sticks: Grind 1/2" first then 1/4" to finish

Ground Hamburger/Venison: Grind 1/4" first then 1/8" to finish

This sound about right?

I think you are over thinking it. We grind sausage burger all once at I think 1/8 th. The rest is just added wear on the equipment and heating up the meat more. 2cents

1/4" grind for Chili meat, 1/8" grind for all other meats. One pass through. the only time I have done two passes was when I was making Bratwurst from some pigs.

For sausage I use course grind and only grind once. For hamburger I will grind with course grind and then second time with the fine grind. I think it speeds up the grinding and doesn't mash up the meat as bad.

Only 1 pass (already mentioned) and MEAT HALF FROZEN works better too!
