To me, the easiest way is to convert your pounds to kilograms. 14/2.2= 6.36 kg That is your blowup factor so just multiply this number to your recipe numbers.

Bad deal. Why do you need to buy a new grinder when it was just the blade? I broke a blade once trying to grind some corn. I still use that grinder but I don't grind corn with it anymore.

If the recipe called for 700 grams of meat and 300 grams of back fat that equals 1 kilo and he wants to use all 14 pounds of meat and would need 6 pound of back fat, wouldn't you need to convert 20 pounds into kilos and use 9.07 as a factor instead of just the 14 pounds of meat?

However if, he is wanting to use all the meat and is asking how much fat to add for a 30% fat content then all he needs to do is multiply the weight of the meat by 1.43 which gives the total weight of meat and fat. Then he can either subtract the known weight of the meat from this total and this will be the fat or he can multiply the 30% to this total and get the same result.
