Yup, but you have to cut the meat into pieces that will fit the grinder. I was having visions of trying to fit an entire roast down the throat of the grinder.

It has two plates with different sizes of holes, so you can choose the "chunkiness" of your ground meat.

Try - LEM.com. It really doesn't pay to get a "cheap" one. As they are sort of a work horse type of michine. Plus you can get attchments to make sausage, jerkey etc.

Oh--I was going to say that I got the Cuisinart one--three blades, sausage feed tube. I think I paid $99 for mine at Canadian Tire. It works well (and quickly) to grind meat for sausage.

That's the only thing I miss on my meat grinder: a sausage feed tube. It's so old now that I doubt they have parts for it any more. I should check.

I have found I move at a slower speed than the electric grinder, therein lies the problem. And I'm not in that much of a hurry

If I had to crank out 50 pounds, had a deer to process, etc. Yes, an electric would be useful. But I only grind about 5 pounds at a time.

Cool Dawg! A new toy! Since it's come from Cabela's you should be able to order any attachments you might want for it.

My hands don't work as well as they used to. Good ol' Arthur.

Yes indeedy! There are plenty of attachments included!

DH thinks I'm crazy. "Where are you gonna put it?"

Silly man. One can never have too many toys.

Sounds like you may originally be from Lake Wobegon?
