I picked up a box of breakfast sausage seasoning from Cabelas recently and 2 lbs of beef fat from a meat locker.

I have a meat grinder that I have never used.

I'm going for it tomorrow, any suggestions.

I am using deer meat from a deer this year.

Never done this before.

This is home brew, send it!

I mix my meat 50/50 with pork roast, run it through the grinder a couple of times. Mix in some seasoning and cook some to taste. Keep mixing, cooking , and tasting until you get it like you want. Good luck

have your meat almost frozen for grinding. It will come out much better and go thru the grinder easier. I've never used beef fat but normally mix 2lbs of venison and 3lbs of ground pork for breakfast sausage. If you bought the Hi Mountain box, it is very mild. I can easily mix half again the amount of seasoning they recommend. I use one of the dish washing tubs from WalMart to mix 5-6 lbs at a time. (That's all it is used for) Point being, use a container that is at least twice as big as you think you'll need.
ETA, cut your meat into inch and a half or so cubes. Add and mix seasoning then grind thru medium plate then fine plate. It is much easier to get the seasoning evenly dispersed this way.
Good luck and let us know how it turns out

Ok, I will.

Meat was put out to thaw maybe 20 minutes ago

I estimate I put out 10 lbs, I don't know if 2 lbs of beef fat will be enough Dink.

But I am gona roll with that and see.

The cubing the meat idea was good, thanks

Beef fat for breakfast sausage? Interested on how that turns out. Iíve always thought pork was for that application.

I bought beef fat to mix with deer meat.

If that's not right please lemme know.

I plan to start around lunch but I have time to go and get something if I need too

I have never tried this

Sure you can, as mentioned earlier a pork roast or ive used pork stew meat ina pinch but I donít think you want to use beef in breakfast sausage. Jimmy Dean uses pork!!

I think I would grab a pork butt (shoulder) for the sausage and mix it 50/50 with the venison. Even that will still be pretty lean for sausage. If you mix a little more pork than venison you would have some venison left. You could use about 4-5lbs with your 2lb beef fat for some great burgers.
I think your sausage would turn out better and you'll have the burgers as a bonus

10-4, glad I posted that.

Thanks guys, I will run and get some pork.

And using that beef fat for some burgers sounds like a good idea

You bet, I don't think I will have to time to eat any today

I will probably get it made up and put up and then hunt the evening hunt

But next weekend I will make a feast of it!
