To ensure meat stays at optimal food safe temps, it is always best to keep meat refrigerated until ready to use. Never use frozen meats in grinder. Before grinding any meat, submerge all pieces of equipment that will come in direct contact with the meat in ice water to thoroughly chill them or place them in the freezer. Place bowl of ice under your catch bowl to ensure ground meat stays cold during grinding. Do not overload your meat grinder!
