    Why did I wait so long to buy one?? Finally picked one up today and kicking myself for not doing so 15-20 years ago! Ground an entire buck, bagged/vacuum sealed, and in the freezer in 25 minutes. Best money I've ever spent.

    I have a similar grinder, but i used my uncles commercial grinder and it ruined me. With that said its too heavy to pick up lol. 250lbs, 3 hp, 220v. I think it took 4 minutes to grind an entire deer lol.

    I've got a Cabelas Carnivore grinder. 3/4 horse. It does great. Planning to pick up the cuber/tenderizer attachment soon. I've got a few different sized plates for the grind depending on what I'm planning to use the meat for. Nothing like rolling your own.

    Yep, we’ve had some grinder threads on here before. I bought a grinder and slicer several years ago. Just a cheap waring from the Cabelas bargain cave. Think I paid $39 for one and $49 for the other. Have never even used the slicer. Little grinder may not be heavy duty but works like a charm. I was the same way, “Why didn’t I do this years ago?”

    I have a Cabelas 3/4 hp grinder and love it. I put about 100 lbs of deer meat through it yearly and added pork this past year. I cant feed it deer meat fast enough. I did manage to slow it down a hair with a bunch of 35 degree pork with plenty of fat in it. Despite the crew of miscreants assembled calling the grinder "cute" compared to the 220 volt unit the other guy was using, it got the job done.

    Debated on going up a step to one with attachments, but didnt know how much I'd really use it. Plan to try making some summer sausage though.

    Do the cheaper slicers work pretty well? I got on a big jerky kick several years ago and looked at a few. IMO the sliced jerky is alot better than using a jerky gun. Just not as convenient.

    So does everyone mix their deer meat with something else? Or just deer meat?

    Do you all try and bone out a deer and grind in the same day?

    I have wanted to buy my own grinder. Mainly to make sure I’m getting my meat back. But many times my schedule doesn’t allow for enough time during one day. I’m thinking maybe to debone into a cooler and then wait a few days to get around to it
