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.
