Ground Jerky Maker - Slick
Works great! Have to help the paper along a bit but no biggie. Meat is very consistent and uniform, this beats the jerky cannon hands down. You waste a little meat on cleanup but its worth it, this is the best jerky maker on the market. Fits my Cabela's Grinder fine.
Ground Jerky Maker - Slick
Worked very well everything is neat and consistent. The paper did not feed by itself you kind of need to help it a little bit but thats not a problem. Easy assembly and teardown but there is some waste of meat in the head of the maker that I need to find a use for but no problem, it is a lot easier to use and better than a jerky gun. I dried the jerky 4 hours on the paper and took them off turned them over and died another 2 hours. Good product I would advise buying!
With the addition of the foot pedal this jerky attachment really spits out the jerky.The only drawback is that the paper does not roll out with ease. The paper must be manipulated with your hand to get the meat just right. I added some plastic hubs with 2 type ZZ bearings and a stainless rod. Now my wife the Jerky Queen Loves her new jerky attachment.Now that the paper rolls on its shaft super easy she has no complaints. i think I should buy her another dehydrater, because now she pushes at least twenty pounds of meat through it a week. Thanks LEM this is a super attachment for our #12 big bite grinder. I think i would have paid the extra few dollars it would have taken your company to make the paper hanging and rolling process the way it should be and you would have 5 Stars across the board . That being said I have to give it 4 stars.
needs a some redesign
The tray attachment is not very secure. Tightening the screws to hold it in place causes it to move out of position. There should be an indentation where the screws hit. The burger patty maker works very good and is the quickest and easiest method I have found yet as long as you assist the paper to slide down the tray. The jerky maker is not so good. You don't get a compact enough strip to make good jerky. I haven't tried the snack stick plate yet and I doubt that I will. I anticipate the same problem with it as with the jerky plate. I think they would work a lot better if the area leading up to the extrusion holes funneled the meat instead of it just meeting a flat plate.
Works great. Make sure meat is close to 32 degrees. Warmer the meat is, harder it is to get it to go through.
The first one I received didn't have the holes threaded where you attach the slide to it. Was sent back and replaced and this one isn't stainless like my grinder. Finish is porous and looks like a casting and not plated. I like the unit but it just doesn't seem to be of LEM quality. There wasn't even a LEM Sticker on it. Harder to keep clean as it's not the best quality.
Doesn't work at all!
The opening where the meat comes out has a manufacturing defect. Its smaller on one side and the meat just gets clogged up on that side and doesn't come out. Very disappointed!
Can't live without it.
I use this on a #32 1.5 hp grinder. When making jerky, let it run out to end of your table, then cut to desired length. Slap it down on your dehydrator screens and peel away paper. This beats the heck out of jerky cannon. Snack stick plate works well for breakfast sausage links as well. Just extrude, mark links with blade, freeze, separate and vacuum pack. Get more paper. You won't be able to stop using this tool.
I bought this for my #8 grinder. Overall it works great. I modified the way the meat chute attaches to the patty maker head. The way it is supposed to attach is very cheesy. I expected more quality engineering from LEM. I drilled out the holes in the meat chute and drilled and tapped the two sides of the patty head. Stays locked in tight now.
Doesn't work well at all. Junk.
Hamburgers and Jerky
Received #5 Grinder for XMAS and purchased this attachment. Just completed grinding 40lbs of deer. Made jerky and patties all morning. Non-stop. This attachment was great. This deserves 5 STARS!!!!
Nice addition to your grinding tools.
Ok this isn't a must but it is nice. Was really amazed out just how nice the patties looked coming out. Is easy to hook up and use. Does work a little slower, but remember this thing compresses meat out. Foot switch is really nice for this product as well. A lot of stop and go here. Have made ground patties, and ground jerky from it and extremely happy with the results.
