The ground meat should be very finely ground by the end of 4 or 5 passes through the grinder. Remember, the colder the meat is, the more efficiently it will pass through the grinder.Here is everything you will need:🔪 https://bit.ly/37qL7NL - Bearded Butcher cutlery🔪 https://bit.ly/2CIo7R9 - Every other Victorinox knife you'd ever want🧂 https://bit.ly/37jHV6z - Don't forget our famous Bearded Butcher Blend seasoning!🧂 https://amzn.to/3k92RUJ - Hickory Smoke Powder🧂 https://amzn.to/3kanuA8 Minced Garlic🧂 https://amzn.to/2Fu3SYm Hot Dog Casing that we recommend 🔪 https://amzn.to/2WhS7Lh Disposable cutting boards to keep things clean and safe🔪 https://traeger.uym8.net/3KrxX Get your Traeger!**For all things Bearded Butcher be sure to FOLLOW US on social media**🍖 https://www.facebook.com/BeardedButcherblend🍖 https://www.instagram.com/beardedbutcherblend🍖 https://twitter.com/_beardedbutcherIndex:5:21 - Start by seasoning the meat. 12 lb gets 6 oz of Bearded Butcher Blend seasoning. We mix the seasoning into the trimmings before we grind them so we end up with a much better blend.7:59 - Scott show you how to take apart, assemble, clean, and lubricate the meat grinder.10:00 - Time to grind up some venison! Start with a 10mm or 3/8 inch plate for a coarse grind.12:17 - Grind #2 goes through a 4.5mm or 1 inch plate. Never remove the guards from your meat grinder! 14:06 - Grind #3. Replicating the outcome of a bowl chopper (finer meat texture) by running the venison through the grinder again.16:23 - Grind #4.16:31 - Grind #5. Change your gloves (lots of protein extraction by now, everything is stick and the proteins are binding together). At this point, dump in 1.25 lb ice for 12 lbs of meat. Dump it right into the ground meat. This will bring the temp down and help it through the final grind.21:54 - Now it's time to get out the mixer! MEAT makes it super simple by allowing for a quick attachment of the grinder to the mixer that you just finished using. Just dump in your ground meat and 1/2 ounce pink cure (sodium nitrite for wild game) for every 12 lb meat. Use about 1/2 bottle of water as well. Change directions every minute, 8 minutes total - so about 4 minutes mixing in each direction. You are free to add more water if you notice that the meat is firming up. Lean meat like venison will usually absorb more water.25:28 - No more power tools. Time to stuff the meat into the casings on the manual stuffer.28:31 - How to twist hot dogs.
