So: the ground chuck that you do is superior to the store-bought, I'm assuming?
Does the vertical stuffer work as at attachment to the grinder, or is it a stand-alone unit?
Well I think it is superior! The store bought stuff is, or used to be, double ground in order to mix the fat/lean better. I only ground this stuff once with a fairly course plate. It had better flavor and texture as far I as was concerned.
As for the vertical stuffer, it is a stand alone unit. Here is a link to the one I've got.
