How much pork do I add when making Venison Sausage?

Mike from Centereach, NY asked:

When making venison sausage, do you mix pork in there? If so how much? I've tried it a couple of times and can't seem to get it right. Thanks!

Thanks for the great question Mike! Yes, I do mix in pork. I prefer to add 50/50 pork trim to my products rather than 100% back fat. Based on 10 lb batches, here is what I recommend:

50/50 trim: I add 6lbs of venison and 4lbs of 50/50 to make a 10lb batch of product
100% fat: I add 8lbs of venison and 2lbs of fat for a 10lb batch of product

Good luck this season Mike!
