If you are using the fine grinding disc I found the same thing. So grind all the fat by itself thru the coarse disc first and then switch to the fine disc and while grinding the meat alternate adding meat and some of the coarse ground fat. I found grinding the fat first with the coarse disc works wonders, I even had to cover the end as it came spitting out sometimes it went thru so fast. That should solve your problem. You could even grind both fat and meat first thru the coarse disc and then run it thru the fine disc and have an even better mix. Hope this helps...

Grinder designed for meat and not straight fat. Good rule is mix with meat at about 10% fat to 90% muscle. The fat will turn to mush and what doesn't pass through the cutter will naturally stick to the interior of the head like glue.
i used beef fat for the first time and my #8 didnt care for it i usually use pork fat non-salted. make sure of that. but beef fat was hard on it i will not use it again
Try grinding your fat when it's frozen. that seems to work best for me. I will not solve the problem but it does help.
Put the fat in the freezer for about 2-3 hours before grinding it. Don't do all fat at once mix some lean with it to keep grinder clean if possible.

try spraying it down with some veg oil spray prior to assembly. and grind everything very cold even partially, very partially frozen. that may help...good luck!

I just ground up 51 lbs of deer burger this afternoon with my new grinder. I had no problem what so ever grinding up fat, silver skin, or anything else that I put through it. The only problem is cleaning fat out of the grinder head when you are done. I decided to put my grinder head, auger, blade, die and everything else in a big pot of water and boit it out. It worked wonderfully. I boiled it all for about ten minutes and then ran a brush through it. You will waste your time trying to get the fat build up out of the head, auger any other way.
