By now you’re probably thinking, “What is this?
I’m already using this for my own food production.”
Well, you’re right.
I’m going to teach you how to make food for your backyard.
The problem is that the first step is to make the food yourself, which is not the easiest thing in the world.
I am a food blogger and have been for almost a decade.
I know that cooking and food production are very similar.
I have two sons, and I also have a husband who works in food production.
I know that a lot of food production and processing is done with plastic and other materials, and we use those to make a lot more food than most people realize.
So, I was very excited when I found out about the “Meat Extruder” product from MeatGrow.
It is an open source, low cost, high performance extruder that makes food.
You will be able to make up to 20lbs of meat a day, and it will be delivered to your house on your own.
It can also be used for other food production, like making cheese, bacon, or anything else.
To make the extruder you will need: -A 3.5mm or smaller diameter thread, or a 1/4in threaded hole.
-1/4″ of a 1.75″ diameter or larger.
This is the hole that will be used to mount the metal extruder.
It can be made as an inexpensive “starter” extruder (I bought mine for $25.00) or as a higher quality extruder for more expensive projects (I paid $80.00 for a 3.25mm, which worked great for my 2-acre farm).
-2 screws to attach the top of the extrusion to the base of the meat.
Make sure you drill and tap the hole well.
(This step is optional if you want to buy the kit and have it made, but you should do it if you can.)
-The base of your meat can be any shape you like.
I use a large chunk of meat from a cow.
If you want a smaller piece, cut it into cubes or chunks and feed it into the meat extrusion.
Once you have the base, drill a small hole into the base so you can attach the extruding parts.
Place the base in the metal housing.
The holes can be drilled out of the housing or into the metal with a small drill bit.
Note that you can put the metal into the housing and then turn the extruded parts upside down, but I didn’t have the time to do that for the test I was doing, so I used the metal screw on the top.
Now, attach the metal to the end of the metal threads.
As you can see, I screwed on the plastic end of my metal threads to hold the extrude together.
Then, put the extrusing part into the plastic housing and tighten the screws.
You now have a cheap meat extruding machine!
