I was reading through one of the threads on the percentage of venison to pork butt to achieve the 80/20 ratio
to achieve the 20 per cent of fat needed. I guess I was doing it wrong. I would get 8 lbs of venison and 2 lbs
of pork butt and grind that up thinking I had the correct ratio. I was reading a thread where Cranky Buzzard said
in order to achieve the 80/20 ratio you needed to mix 50 % venison and 50 % pork butt. I guess I have been
mixing the incorrect amounts for my summer sausage. You can teach an old dog new tricks.
