The biggest butts I find around here are 8-9 lbs each. The only thing bigger is a brisket but why would you weight it? The weight is on the package, if your looking for trimmed weight just weigh the trimmings you took off and do the math. Is it more the physical size of the unit make it difficult to use?

I bought the one above for making bacon or sausage. I don't envision batches of more than about 10 lbs at a time. Even if I did, I would have to do it in batches (I don't have commercial size kitchen equipment).

Did I miss the boat here? Do I need to order another scale immeadiately? Oh no...what have I done!?!?!?!?
The meat I buy by the case does not have the individual weights on each piece of meat. The only weight is the total case weight on the outside of the box.
