Why isn't my grinder mixing up my meat?

Chuck from Cranberry, PA asked:

When I grind up venison, I add in some beef shoulder for the fat. But it doesn’t get mixed together in the grinder, it just comes out separate. Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks for the question Chuck,

Anytime I mix pure fat into my wild game meats, I always dice the fat into very, very small pieces before grinding - about the size of the diced onions you would put on a hot dog. If you're just mixing fatty beef in, cut it into the same size you have your wild game. Then I mix the fat into my lean wild game trim very well and then grind. This will help get it mixed into your meat batch nice and even.The key is to mix your fat or domestic meat into the wild game before you grind it to get it evenly distributed. The grinder isn't meant to do that for you.

Good luck this fall and thanks again for the question.
