    Invest in New & High Quality Meat Processing Equipment

    First of all, don’t take this as just a sale pitch. While Walton’s would love you to buy all new equipment from us each year, this is really meant to help you make better meat snacks and produce a higher quality product. Newer equipment and higher quality equipment does make a HUGE difference in meat processing. We hear from people all the time that are using a 30-40 year old meat grinder, and they seem proud of the fact that they’ve made it last that long, and while it might be impressive that it is still running that long, we can almost guarantee it is no longer producing a high quality product. The head and auger on an old grinder like that will no longer fit correctly after extended years of use. Grinder parts, plus all other meat processing equipment parts do wear out over time. Worn out parts will cause a lower quality meat grind and a sub-par final product. Other people may be using a meat grinder at home that is simply an attachment for a kitchen stand mixer and while it does work in grinding meat, it is very poor at producing a high quality grind and is very inefficient at grinding as well. Another key point in meat grinding is to keep a sharp plate and knife, plus always use the same grinder plate and knife together can really be helpful. Another related point relates to whether you should use a meat grinder to stuff sausage. Meat grinders can be used as a sausage stuffer, but buying a true and dedicated sausage stuffer can really help make a more consistently stuffed sausage. Grinders will typically “smear” meat as you try to stuff sausage into casings and overwork the meat which leads to a loss of color and particle definition. So actually using a sausage stuffer is preferred over just stuffing from a meat grinder. Lastly, looking at meat mixing, you can hand mix many meat products but when you are trying to make a cured sausage that needs a lot of protein extraction is is hard to get an adequate mix by only hand mixing. Investing in a quality meat mixer can really help in your protein extraction (and thus your binding and consistency in your final product) plus reduce the amount of time you spend in your mixing cycle.

    So make sure you are taking care of your equipment, following maintenance schedules, and investing in new equipment and parts, to make the highest quality meat products!
