    Gonna try to make some bacon deer burger today and was wondering what the ratio of bacon to deer should be. Anybody that has done this let me know. Thanks

    I usually go 15-20%. I buy bacon ends and pieces in a box at Walmart it's a little cheaper. I also season it with Head Country seasoning, also at Walmart. Turns out great!

    You can never go wrong with 100% bacon.

    I will probably get kicked but here goes anyway............:rolleyes:....25% pork now for the kicker don't use bacon if you like smoke flavors........:whistle:...use smoked Jowl gives a great smoke flavor and has salt so no need to salt when cooked.......also for poor folks like me bacon is 2 times higher priced per pound than jowl........:up:

    Let the basing begin.........:doh:

    That's a good idea! I never thought of that one.

    I vary mine a little depending on how fat the bacon is. Generally though, I use three pounds bacon to 7 pounds of deer (70/30. If the bacon is really fat I will cut it back to 2.5 bacon to 7.5 deer.

    I used the bacon ends and trimmings. Looked good when it came out the grinder. When I cook some I'll let you know. Thanks fellars.
