First time Brats w/ Q-View

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Made brats for the first time yesterday. I had the LEM Fresh Brat seasoning pack then added onion & garlic. The instructions on the pack said to mix 1 oz of water to the seasoning for every pound of meat, I used beer instead !!!!   The meat was 9lbs venison & 6 lbs pork butt. Got to admit it came out great !!  Thanks for the advice on the onion.garlic, & beer I was given yesterday.S__2899.jpgS__5EE9.jpgS__B9E8.jpgS__D5E9.jpgS__83E9.jpgS__93E9.jpg

So far I've always had really great results with LEM mixes.

Great looking brats and perfect timing on the post for me. Hubby wants some homemade brats and since you used Venison and Pork, I'm sure I can use Elk and Pork. Any advice or tips? Thanks

I used the LEM Fresh Brat Seasoning Pack made for 15 lbs -  Chopped up 1 Large onion - 3 T minced garlic -  Mixed the seasoning pack w/ 16 oz beer -  Mixed it all up very well then stuffed in casings.  Will be vacuum sealed today then in the freezer.
