    Could someone tell me if ageing beef is necessary if I where to grind the whole steer.

    Should it hang and chill  or could I Pop Drop and process. I do a lot of meat stick and there have been no deals on meat here in the northeast. Thanks

    I know it's not beef but I never worry about aging deer meat that's for the grinder. Really don't see the need. Usually I hang just til rigor passes before boning, then ground meat done 1st while other cuts get done as I find time between hunts.
  3. I think it helps with the flavor as well as tenderness. Not sure if you can tell in ground meat?

    Happy smoken.
