How do you make your deer burger?

Recommended Posts

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!

7:1 venison to beef tallow.

Moist, hold together while cooking.

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.

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 remember the pictures you posted of your neighbors house. Those pictures along with the news paper article about the guy from WI that blew up his garage and killed his wife were enough to convince me not to refill 1lb tanks.
    • Just my opinion but I find the 1 pounders to be convenient. I used to hook up a hose to my mr. Heater/Cooker years ago and run off a 20 pounder and I almost melted through the hose. I never found dealing with a hose and a tank to be as convenient as using the 1 pounders.    For me, if it were all about saving a couple of bucks, I would just buy my fish in a store. It seems funny to me that guys that spend thousands of dollars to sit on a sheet of ice and catch fish would risk their safety trying to save a couple of bucks on propane.   But again, that's just my opinion.
    • Thanks for all the info fellas! I ended up buying two 140 mm fans, but have only installed one.  I decided to take it one step further and install a thermo fan switch. I actually ended up buying the switch and mounting plate directly from empire for $30. This way the fan cycles with the heat. The switch kicks in about 5 min after the heat turns on and runs from about 5 min after it turns off. Using the switch should keep things more consistent.  I wired it up to a SPDT On-Off-On switch so that I can run it either in thermoswitch mode or manual.   As far as the fans go, the 140 mm seem are quieter and draw less (0.16 amp) than the 120 mm fans due to the reduced RPM requirements. One thing that I did notice though is that although they are rated high on the CFM scale, they do not seem to have near as much pressure as the smaller fans. I understand why that is, but not sure if the lower pressure will make a difference in pushing air over the heat exchanger. That was one reason that I left room for two  
    • A guy would probably want to buy a back up canister, at that price you could buy a 5lb and save a couple bucks. 
    • I like both so I smoke for about 2 hours and finish in dehydrator.
    • will stay with this method. dont want to be filling that thing every night.  I have a dozen that I keep reusing . 
    • 20 pounder in my sled aint gonna happen. 
    • Been there done that. Not worth refilling. I'll stick to my 20 lbers!
    • https://www.menards.com/main/heating-cooling/propane-tanks/steel-1-lb-refillable-cylinder-with-refill-kit/ysn1lbkt/p-1491546053102.htm   Only $34.99 at Menards. That looks like the real ticket. Personally I would never re-fill those coleman 1 lbers. They aren't made for it and it seems dangerous to me. This kit comes with one refillable cylinder so you might need to buy one or two more but then they are supposedly good for 12 years. I think I might buy myself one for the holidays.
    • It is super good, but tasted it from a buddy who got it made from a locker.  I know a couple of ingredients like maple syrup and honey but thats about it.
