Default champion juicer

got a pretty good deal on a champion juicer, was planning on using it for emilsifing ground meat for hot dogs and liver wurst with it, but see they sell a tomato screen for it too, was wondering if anyone has one and uses it for tomatoes? thanks--- tom

used a braunschwiger recipe, but didn't smoke it, can't see how smoke will penetrate a plastic casing anyways, so just call it liver sausage. made with deer liver and pork, ground it in the grinder first, then in the food prosesser a little at a time, came out pretty good but not as fine as i would like---tom

Looks like you're having so much fun, Tom; I never would have thought to put meats through a juicer!

yes think they were 24mm, would of prefered a little bit bigger tho.they were a little too snug on the 1/2 inch tube, so had to use the really small slim jim tube, which made it a bit tougher to fill. my other tube of casings were bigger, wish i would of grabbed those ones instead, thought they were all the same size. lol--tom

encore, those look good! My Champion juicer looks very different than yours does, and would probably never handle meat at all. The juice part comes out of a spout and the vegetable matter is separated from the juice into another container. Haven't used it in many years, too messy to clean, LOL.
