The hand grinders work a lot better if you cube your meat and almost freeze it. Just freeze until it gets pretty stiff. It feeds into the grinder a lot better. It comes out a lot better. When you finish grinding, I have seen a lot of people put a few pieces of stale light bread in behind the last meat to clean it out. I have used a #10 hand grinder for all of my processing. I went in and gave my neighbor some money and he bought a commercial grinder and a tenderizer. I still have not used it though. I don't mind the hand grinder as long as it is just one deer at a time.
