So you’ve been hunting. You’ve got your trophy and now you’re heading home thinking of all that lovely venison you have. Once you’ve butchered your kill, you’re left with all the good stuff that you need to process into some tasty meals to warm the soul.

In this article, we will review the 5 best meat grinders for deer available on the market. Before we jump into the reviews themselves, let’s take a quick look at what you need to look for before you buy.

Manual or Electric

Let’s face it, there is something romantic about sustainability and processing your own meat. So you won’t be surprised to hear that I am a fan of manual tools that require zero electricity and only man (or women) power!

Hand-cranked meat grinders are great for processing venison and you get a good arm workout too. however, I understand that they are not for everyone and convenience does come high on most people’s list of requirements, after all, you just spent the day or weekend stalking and now you want to grind that meat and get eating.

So the 2nd option is an electronic deer meat grinder, that is both faster and comes with a wide range of options for different types of meat and is, of course, capable of processing more meat. Which brings me onto my next point.


Each grinder will have a meat tray which allows you to add your chopped up cuts of meat ready to be processed. Each device will differ in tray size and whilst it’s fairly easy to continually top up the tray it does help to have a larger capacity tray to accept a bigger portion of meat.

Again this makes the entire process a little simpler and easier and most importantly faster.


We all like out mean ground different, some like it thick and course, others prefer a more finely grounded meat. Ultimately it comes down to personal preference and also the kind of foods you will be making with your venison.

Be on the look out for several attachments and grinding blades and also a sausage stuffer is a great tool to have and further expands your culinary options.

The 5 Best Meat Grinders for Venison

1.STX Turboforce II – Electric Meat Grinder

When is comes to quality and durability, we cannot look past the STX Turboforce II. Both the price, great customer reviews and an array of features and attachments all combine to make this our number one pick for venison meat grinding.

Features & Specifications

  • Foot pedal control
  • 2″ feeding tube
  • 2.5″ output
  • 3x Cutting Discs
  • 5x Grinding Plates
  • 3x Stuffing Tubes

Our Thoughts

This is one of the more advanced models we will review here today, with its unique air cooling technology that doubles the lifespan of the device, the STX Turbo force can process a large amount of meat in a short space of time. You can make burgers and sausages galore from this machine without breaking the bank.

2. BCP Home Industrial 1200W Electric Meat Grinder

Few grinders can beat the BCP Home Industrial meat grinder on price, which is why I suppose BCP stands for Best Choice Products.For those of you on a budget who are looking for a machine that can process your deer meat on an ad-hoc basis and don’t need something that can run for hours on end, then this is the one for you.

Features & Specifications

  • 1200w
  • Stainless Steel & Plastic Housing
  • Meat Pusher and cover included

Our Thoughts

As 1200w this venison grinder is more than powerful enough for the toughest cuts of game meat. don’t let the price of this device put you off, however. You get a 60-day warranty which should give you enough time to really put it through its paces and the money you save could be spent on additional ammo to bag your next deer.


Another addition from STX International, this time we have the STX-3000 model. With a powerful 3,00 watt motor that controls the meat grinding and chopping blade, this meat processor has some serious power.

This has a size 12 grinder which makes it much more robust and capable than the small N.o 8 or N.o 5 meat grinders in the same category.

Features & Specifications

  • 3,000-watt motor
  • 1 year Fix or Replace Guarantee
  • 3x Tempered Steel Grinding Plates
  • 3x Stainless Steel Cutting Blades
  • 3x Piece Set of Sausage Tubes

Our Thoughts

Slightly more powerful than the previous STX model with a modern design whilst maintaining the qualities you’d expect from a grinder in this price range, such as the cast aluminum meat pan, grinding head and auger. With everything you need to start processing your venison right out of the box, the STX-3000 will meet all of your needs.

4. Homeleader 1400 Watt Electric Meat Grinder

We like to meet all price ranges and budgets when we’re reviewing products and the Homeleader 1400 is one of those ‘budget’ models when it comes to price, but packs a big punch in terms of its capabilities.With a powerful 1400 watt motor and various grinding options such as Coarse, Fine & Medium, not to mention the several attachments that come as standard with this compact grinder, you will struggle to find a better deal.

Features & Specifications

  • 1,400-watt motor
  • 3 grinding options
  • Compact design for easy storage

Our Thoughts

We love the size of this device, which won’t take up much space in the kitchen or pantry. Measuring just 13.8 x 6.3 x 13.8 inches (LxWxH) this compact meat grinder has enough power to whiz through tough game meat like the best of them.

For us, you simply cannot beat the great power to price ratio that the Homeleader grinder offers.

5. Sunmile SM-G33 ETL Electric Stainless Steel Meat Grinder Mincer

Last but by no means least is the Sunmile SM-G33, which is a mid-range meat grinder with a combination of power, style and a fantastic price to boot.

This model has an 800w motor which is capable of grinding up to 170 lbs. of meat per hour, enough for anyone’s taste buds. It also has a large over-sized tray to allow you to fit plenty of cut meat which also helps with faster grinding.

Features & Specifications

  • 800w motor
  • Large capacity meat tray
  • Single button operation
  • 3x cutting plates
  • Meat Pusher
  • 3x sausage attachments

Our Thoughts

If you’re looking for an easy to use venison meat grinder that is both compact and looks great in any kitchen, whilst also saving you money, then the SM-G33 fits the bill.
