    The real reason I bought my vintage meat grinder

    Hamburgers! I bought my Hobart 4312 meat grinder with the intention of making a custom burger blend but, since it arrived during hunting season, I got sidetracked with processing game for friends and with making sausage. Finally, during the COVID lock down in April, I made my burger blend. Hit the nail on the head the first try. I've made burgers, meatballs (Swedish and Italian), meat loaf, and Bolognese sauce with this blend. All turned out great!


    I blended brisket, chuck roast, and short rib meat. This is probably a 65/35 lean to fat ratio but could be 60/40. The burgers are so danged good and juicy. Here are the ones I made yesterday, served with white cheddar, a fire roasted Anaheim pepper, spicy Whataburger ketchup, and pepper jack boudin:

    Here is the blend:

    14.2 lb packer brisket, low choice grade and untrimmed (43.3%)
    10.2 lb chuck roast (31.1%)
    8.4lb short rib meat (25.6%)

    Cubed, mixed, and ground with a 3/8 plate, mixed again and ground with a 3/16 plate.

    Price came to $4.08/lb.

    Gawd man!!! I’ve been grinding brisket ever since JRod suggested it with a pound of bacon.

    But anything off that forequarter is gonna be beefy for sure.

    love this.

        Pit under the hood, salad bar in the trunk?

        I was thinking more firebox in the trunk and parrilla under the hood.

              If the price is right: I like beer, BBQ, and whisky (not necessarily in that order).

              I have plenty of beer and bourbon.

              After seeing your posts, not sure you'd be impressed with my bbq, but I'm sure we can work it out.
