Cut and Season the Meat

Mix dry seasonings into the meat before grinding.

Cut the pork butt or whatever type of meat you're using into pieces that are small enough to fit into the grinder, around one-inch cubes. Cut the fatback into similarly sized pieces, and combine the meat and the fatback into a bowl. Sprinkle the meat with the dry seasonings and, working with light hands (to keep the fat from warming up), toss the mixture to combine.
