Weekly Blog Post - Meat Processing Equipment and Coppa
Find out what's going on at Walton's and Meatgistics this week. We will have a loose schedule for soon to be released videos, what we are working on long-term and maybe a few quick tips and tricks that are on our mind!
What Videos are being released soon?
Meat Processing Equipment 205 Maintenance for Sausage Stuffer An in-depth look at how to take care of and replace the gearbox on your Walton’s Sausage Stuffer.
Meat Processing Equipment 206 Advanced Sausage Stuffers More information on Sausage Stuffers that we did not include in earlier videos, including a break down of the full line of Walton’s Sausage Stuffers.
Meat Processing Equipment 207 Advanced Grinding We show you two major factors in the speed and quality of your grind.
What Projects are we looking ahead at?
We have an Eller Climatic MM M100 Dry Curing Chamber in our test kitchen but we have never had much of a chance to play around with it. That is finally changing, we made a “Coppa” recently with Excalibur’s Fig and Spiced Rum Cocktail Rub and it came out delicious. That was a test run and we are just getting ready to do some more testing and we will have a video coming out on that as well in the next few months.
What’s on our Mind?
We are starting to put together our giveaway $ sales for May 2019. If anyone reading this has a good idea on what you would like to see as a giveaway or a sale item let us know and we will see if we can make something work.

We have ordered new Meatgistics T-shirts and we have expanded our size range so hopefully, there is something for everyone. The design will remain the same but we will now have two colors of shirts available. One will be a Heathered Grey which will be very close to the current shirt and the other will be Burnt Orange.
We also have ordered new hats
The Brand New Weston 6 Tray Dehydrator Plus should be in stock pretty soon here at Walton’s and this should be a great option for anyone looking for a quality dehydrator under $100. It has over 7 square feet of drying space across 6 trays and can be set up for run times up to 48 hours!
Meat Fact of the Week -
According to a report by the USDA, the average American ate an estimated 222 lb of meat in 2018 (those are rookie numbers, we need to pump those numbers up!) when you consider there are approximately 325 million adults in the United States the total amount of meat is 72 billion lb a year! American hunters harvest an estimated 6 million whitetail alone in the US a year, at about 50 lb of meat each deer that is 300 million lb of meat and that is to say nothing of Elk, Moose or Water Fowl. So if you removed just Whitetail hunting that is an additional 400,000 cattle that would have to be farmed to make up the difference. So do everyone, including yourself, a favor and keep hunting and processing your wild game!
