Hey guys, its been a while since I have been on here. Long story short I got laid off for a bit and had to cut back on things, like internet. I got back on at my old job and things are looking up again.
Ok so on to the question, I shot my first deer this year and took the trimmings in to a shop in town to have them grind it for me, butchered the rest with some help from my brother in law. They added beef fat to the ground venison. In talking to them it seems like it was about 10-15%. Can I use this to make ground meat jerky and snack sticks? I have read so much conflicting info on this and I dont want to waste any of my first deer, or any deer, experimenting. Also if you have some good ground meat jerky and snack stick recipes I could use those as well. Thanks in advance.
