    Meat Hacks

    We’re kicking off today with Meat Hacks… A question we get a lot is…Can I use a meat grinder to grind animal bones and make pet food? In some cases, that answer is yes. We have 2 Weston meat grinders that are approved, by the manufacturer, to grind SOME types of bones, and the Pro-Cut meat grinders can also grind some types of bones. From Pro-Cut there are #12, 22, and 32 size grinders available, and for the Weston grinders, you will want to look at the Weston Pro Series Electric Meat Grinders, in the #22 and #32 sizes. These grinders are capable of grinding smaller, softer animal bones, such as rabbit, whole chickens, chicken quarters, and other birds, due to the power and all metal construction of the units. But, please avoid trying to grind large or dense animal bones such as bones from any type of large game, pigs, cows, deer, or sheep. And, always remember that busted splintered bones can get into the digestive tract of a pet and cause severe damage and even death by puncturing the walls of the intestines or stomach. So…YES…you can get a grinder capable of grinding certain types of bones by purchasing a Pro-Cut meat grinder or the Weston #22 or #32 Pro Series Meat Grinder, but please do be wary of the dangers that can arise in feeding pets food with bones in them, if you don’t adequately and completely grind the bones.

  • @Ernie I don’t have a particular recipe but I did make brats with ‘The Sausage King of Walla Walla’ using Walla Walla Sweet Onion juice. He was a notorious sausage maker in my area and only made one type…Sweet Onion. For small batches he would grate or mince the onions fine and squeeze out the excess water and use that for flavoring. Larger batches he would source the liquid from processors.

    I would suggest using one of the Excalibur brat seasonings as a base and play around with the juice.
