We grind 3 to 1, venison/pork shoulder (or faty pork) which we get from butchering our own hogs.

We just grind it straight there is almost zero white in it, no fat added or pork added.

If I am going to make something from the deer grind later that needs pork (like all the stuff I am making next weekend) I grind the pork fresh then mix with vension grind. No reason to take up valuable freezer space with pork fat added to it all, + not all things need pork fat (tacos, chili, sloppy joes). Do it when the recipe/end product calls for it.


Most things like Kolbassi, summer sausage, etc..will call for anything from 80/20 to 50/50 and that depends on taste. I go about 75/25...more than that defeats the purpose of a lean deer meat IMO.

I use 100% venison for summer sausage and bologna and add canola oil to keep it together and moist. Works great and tastes better!

Kolbassi = 75/25 pork fat.

slim jims = 75/25 beef

Hamburgers made mixed with a little bacon tastes GREAT!

Tacos, chili, sloppy joes, etc....100% venison!

I trim mine as much as possible then do not add anything extra. I make mostly lasagna, tacos, cheeseburgers, meatloaf, and jerky with my burger so I really have no need to add anything extra.

Keith give me an amount of oil/ pound...I like the sound of that brother for the trail bologna.

I did the bacon burger grind a couple times too...+1 on that, but mark it accordingly so you don;t thaw and use it for something else.

Lucky it is lunchtime i am getting hungry.

for Chili, straight venison

Burgers, meatloaf, I add rendered bacon fat

When making sausage, I usually use a 3:1 of venison to pork.

I hear ya John on marking the package... \:\) BIG LETTERS - BACON/VENISON!!!!!

I used 1 tablespoon of oil to 2lbs of meat and a drizzle over the mix while grinding. Sorry, I don't usually measure, but that's real close! LOL

Make sure you really pack the casing while stuffing!

dont add anything to burgers
3 to 1 deer to pork for sausage

^thats the thing to do
burgers dont add any pork or beef but with sausage 3:1 deer to pork or almost 50/50 deer to pork . If u make sausage with any less it will be really dry.
