How do you make your deer burger?

13 posts in this topic

Post some different ways.

I just mixed it up a new way and it's pretty darn good. Still dry but not too dry and great flavor.

I used 15 pounds ground venison and 5 pounds bacon. It's dryer than I thought it'd be. Nice smokey flavor!

Bacon works for me too. My favorite.

Sometimes I just add beef fat. Pork doesn't freeze as well.

typically my customers like the mix of burger trim and 10% beef suet. It adds alittle favor and helps keep it to hold together better while cooking. I have had guys bring in bacon. We like the taste of venison and don't like to try and camo it.

Wow. I never mix my venison with anything other than more venison or an egg to hold it together. If I wanted pork or beef, I'd raise pigs and cows. Hardly seems worth it to spend the time and energy on hunting for it only to hide the flavor with beef and swine. IMHO.

Straight up is the only way to go. Every year I put 5 deer in the freezer and if I were to do a rough estimate for poundage if I were to go 50/50 I'd be spending $400+. I shoot deer because my family and myself like how it tastes. I feel very fortunate my wife goes likes deer because otherwise I think I would be down to one deer a year.

CNC- I am not trying to hide the taste, just trying to make it last a little longer in my case.. LOL

I agree 100% with you ChrisT, I also try to tag out w/5 deer each yr. When I fire up the grill and throw some steak or a roast on my girls will run aroud w/a steak in each hand. This meat is great for them. Also 100% ven. burger, no additivies other than seasoning.

    • I went through the same thing. I had ATV's at first then bought an RZR. It was fun but honestly the quality for the price is pretty bad. You can go up to a Can Am but then the price is even worse. So a few years after I sold the RZR I got the itch again but then started looking at the Wranglers and ended up doing that. I bought a 2006 with the 4.0 and after that and buying a used 6.6' plow I was into it for less than 13.5k and can drive it everywhere.   I have the hardtop on mine. I just take it off in the summer and drive it when it's nice. IMHO it's the way to go but you need to watch out for ones that are rusted out. I take the doors off, the top off and drive around sniping gophers, head to the lake or just cruise around. I like the 32" BFG KO tires.     
    •   What's a big guy like you going to do with a little SUV?  Your still keeping the truck to pull that new trailer right?
    • Good luck, have fun and stay topside this time of year.
    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
    • Our son has one... mid 90's vintage....   I think it is the 6, was there another choice?   Not very good gas milage...
    • Anyone have one of these or know the pros and cons about them? I was looking at side by sides but came to the conclusion if I were going to spend around 15K or so I would rather have something more road worthy with a heater. Was surprised what they want for a new Jeep so I would have to find a gently used one for that price. So I would like to know the pros and cons with the little older ones or what to look for and what not to. I'm sure a guy would want the 6 cylinder as I might want to put a plow on the front eventually if we ever get snow.
