Help with brats (QVIEW ADDED)

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Ok I am making some brats this week.  I have about 10 pounds of pheasant mixed with 2 pounds of beef fat or pork fat so 12 pounds total.  I am going to grind up 3 lbs of bacon to go with it, so it will have plenty of fat.  This is for a buddy of mine, and I am going to make half into buffalo pheasant brats and half will be made into jalapeno pineapple brats.  I have all the seasonings and everything and was just wondering if anybody knows how much jalapenos and pineapple to put in a 7.5 pound batch?  How much per pound?  I am also making some venison brats for myself and am going to add jalapenos and pepperjack cheese to them.  I will probably make a 10 pound batch because my hog casings stuff 25 pounds so I will just use a pack of casings.  How much jalapenos and pepperjack cheese do I need?  do I need high temp cheese?  I appreciate all the input and will post quickview on thursday when I make the brats.

I just ran across your post and am re-posting to get you fresh exposure.  I do not have a good answer to you questions, but I'm sure others will be along soon to chime in...


Sausages are the next thing I plan on learning now that I am producing bacon. thumb1.gif

It all depends on how hot you like them. I would just go with what you think you like, then after mixing it up do a fry test. If it needs more heat then add some. If it's too hot you would have to add more meat. So be conservative at first with the jalapenos.

So i had time to make my brats.  Here is the first batch.  It is buffalo ranch brats made with pheasants from last season mixed with beef fat and bacon.

Next up jalapeno pineapple brats.  Meat is pheasant mixed with beef fat and bacon.  Mixed 7.5 pounds of meat with 1 jar jalapenos and 2 cans of crushed pineapple.  




After that comes jalapeno pepperjack cheese brats.  I made these with a mixture of ground venison and ground pork.  






All mixed and stuffed into casings.  I cant wait to grill some of these up this weekend camping.
