We will use the hell out of it during deer season. We have at least one pig a year slaughtered, we have the butcher do the sausage, and maybe I will give it a shot. We get a turkey or two a year. We hunt squirrel, rabbit and raccoon (varmint sausage maybe??). There is allot of meat running around in my woods.
It is suppose to slice, we use do a crap load of deer jerky. I even use the sawzall and have used my jig saw to cut it when the meat is frozen for jerky.
I think this will make things easier.
As far as off the grid, I could use my generator if need be.
