New Grinder

I used my new Weston #22 Grinder today to make my own raw dog food.

WOW! does it work great. It is quiet and fast. The longest part of the job was the set up and clean up, lol. It took about 15 seconds or less to grind 5 pounds of beef.

Now I hope the dogs love the finished product!!! LOL

There is nothing like a great tool in the kitchen. Worth every penny. Glad to hear it's working so well, Kathy. Let us know how the pooches like the food.

Just make sure you really wash it down good. I heard grape seed extract is great for cleaing up after raw food.

Chances are if your parents never had kids...you won't either...

Kathy, I don't do the the from scratch thing (how awesome that you do) ...But I do supplement with plain ground turkey and found it is really easy to make my own medallions by using mini muffin tins (each hole is an ounce) It allows you only get one hand dirty as you stuff turkey in the tins- I then freeze them (I stack 6 sheets at a time) and then empty them into freezer bags. Just in case you are looking for how to make a lot at once.

Sounds great. I have a few questions:
How much did you make? How much did you feed each dog? What kind of beef did you use?
I'd sure love to get my dogs back on raw.
