I'm pretty new to sausage making and smoking and have a quick question that I'd appreciate any comments on.
I'm cleaning out the freezer and plan to try making some pheasant and wild rice brats and then smoke them. I know it is a lean bird so will be adding some pork fat and ground pork. All of this meat is raw.
I also have a couple of ziploc bags of leftover turkey meat that was cooked 2 months ago and then frozen.
Question is : Would it hurt anything if I grind up the cooked turkey and add it to the raw meat mix before stuffing the casings?
I can't find anything on-line that would discourage this....but I'm interested if anyone has tried this before and had either good or bad experience?
Will be adding Instacure #1 and smoking to a safe IT (still researching that too).
