Somewhere around 10% or less. We don't do it as an exact science. Just add some fat as it goes into the grinder, and use enough that it looks right.

I do around 15. What is more important is putting a cup of baking soda and half a cup of salt on the iced down quarters and letting them sit in a cooler for a few days.

I know a lady who raises Akaushie beef. Its nice to use that fat if you can get it.

We feed so much corn the deer are fat and we just grind it in without adding beef fat to the burger. We do grind in bacon ends or pork shoulder to the sausage though.

I dont add any fat. Sometimes when I will cook it, I'll add a little ground beef, but normally just cook it as is.

I do all my own processing. I use bacon in my venison and it comes out absolutely delicious.

This. If you want it to last 8-10-12 months, don't add any fat until you cook it (or use pork fat, it seems to hold up the best). The few times we used beef fat it went south after a few months.

I don't add any fat to the ground venison. We use it for spaghetti, tacos, hamburger helper, and chili. I know guys that use pork shoulders or the fat from the pork shoulder. The fat will help pack the meat better for a hamburger. But I will use regular ground beef for burgers.

When I initially break down my deer I will set aside so many lbs to grind. I make a coarse grind of 100% venison. Then later if I decide to make burgers or sausage I can add specific fats, using a fine grind. . I will use brisket trimmings for burger grinds (no more than 10%), Just be sure to cut it in aa evenly as possible.

My wife gets a package of bacon trimmings from HEB. When we make sausage, she'll eyeball it and when she thinks its about right then she'll fry a patty to test it and adjust from there.

I use four to five pounds of beef fat to twenty pounds of deer meat. Any less and you will need a binder. If you stuff it in a tube it will last but heck try a small amont the other way and fry it up and see what you think. Hey Most of this processing thing is trial and error.

I usually don't add fat. I do make a few batches of venison ground with about 20% bacon ends and pieces for making into patties. Really good on the grill.
