    Don't think my message got sent so I would keep it oiled and put the meat in the freezer for half an hour before grinding. You don't want it too hard but you don't want it too soft either

  • Use a 1/4" plate and do not second grind it, keep it "fluffy". For brisket, add a bit of fat.

    Maybe you meant to say for sirloin?
