Champion Juicer for emulsifying hotdogs

Post by Thewitt » Mon Jan 28, 2019 16:26

I saw this on YouTube, where the Champion Juicer used with the blank plate is used to emulsify meat for hotdogs, and I tried it this weekend.

It works brilliantly!

I ground 50/50 beef and pork through a 1/4" plate, seasoned, then fed through the 1/8" plate, then through the Champion.

The result was a perfect emulsion for hotdogs.

Stuffed into lamb casings, smoked, simmered and rested they have perfect mouth feel.

Very pleased with this approach.

I heard of this juicer and was going to buy it... Still want to buy but my wife is vetoed this attempt - at least for now: her argument is "you already have too many toys for your hobby". Really? It's never too many toys! :-) This juicer is pretty expensive if you buy it new (around $350 or so) but you can find it on craiglist for $40-100 used.... Looks like the juicer does really good job.

I bought mine used for $35, then had to add the blank plate which I picked up on Amazon. All of the parts can be sourced if you pick one up that's missing something. The same design has been in production since the 1950s.

I also used it for making tomato sauce based on another youtube video. I added the tomato screen for this, also from Amazon. It worked brilliantly and I put up 16 pints of tomato sauce and 10 pints of tomato water.

It's also a nice juicer :)

You have to tell your wife what I tell my wife, he who dies with the most toys wins!
25 years ago I use to smoke pot. Now I smoke pork.

Will any cold press juicer work the same? There's an Aobosi cold press on CL for $40. Don't have a food processor and this looks easier to use (no ice?). Thanks

Bob-
Its pretty hard to tell if it would work, the champion has a strong 1/3 horse motor and an optional blank plate.
Best way is to just try it
