Yes you can refreeze if you really need to. For the best quality finished product, you really want to grind whole fresh meat and fully process it within a narrow time window. The quality of ground meat degrades over time, whether it is frozen or fresh
Meat mixing & protein extraction

I have 2 meat mixers with 5 fingers on each one. I do take things very literal and went watching the Walton videos Jonathan comments that good protein extraction is necessary thus I really work the mix hard. As stated above I only have my hands but I only make small batches. I usually aim for 10#. Can you over mix meat? If so what are the results?
denny66 SO yes, you can overmix but it is sort of difficult to do especially with hands. The most common issues would be fat smear or really rubbery texture. Of the two I believe the fat smear is more common but more plays into that happening than just the mixing.
