processhead This seems like solid reasoning. I have to agree that I would choose the 22. Like you said, the odds of the grinder creating any kind of bottleneck is slim. Looking at some specs on the 2 seems to show only a 3 pound a minute difference. The 32 is obviously faster and if the money is of no real concern, go for it. If you are looking for value, 22 seems to fit better. A market hog is 200-250#, at 3 pounds a minute difference, if you ground the whole thing at once you’re looking at a very small time savings of just a few minutes.
