I have made tons of butter cream and only one time it was gritty...and I chalked it up as to a bad batch of powdered sugar.   Not sure why you are having "batches" turn out gritty.    Are you creaming the butter & Crisco until smooth as sour cream?   Try sifting your PS...which I never have done.  I don't know..maybe some one else has some insight.

Gritty is from your powder sugar. Use a different brand....and or try a different technic/recipe. Look up cakegirls decorating frosting recipe. They dissolve the powdered sugar to eliminate the possible gritty texture.
