Making Mini Bear Loafs today

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

My son left for college last week so I thought I would make him something he likes. He will come home for the holiday weekend coming up so he can take some back with him.

 

I followed Bears recipe (cannot go wrong with it) but made a few changes:

 

7 Pounds of Ground Beef (80-20). - I used all ground venison 

Dry Mix:
Black Pepper----------------------------3/4 TBS
Red Pepper Flakes----------------------3/4 TBS
Cayenne Pepper------------------------3/4 TBS
Mustard Seed---------------------------3/4 TBS
Fennel Seed (slightly crushed)--------None we do not like
Anise Seed------------------------------- None we do not like
Italian Seasoning------------------------2 tsp
Garlic Powder----------------------------1tsp - I somehow did not have any so I used 1 tsp Onion Powder
Onion Powder----------------------------1tsp


Wet Mix:
Tender Quick (cure)---------------------1 3/4 ounce
Soy Sauce--------------------------------3 ounces
Ice Water---------------------------------3 ounces
Stir until TQ is dissolved, and put in fridge.

NOTE: Any amounts of the ingredients above can be changed to suit your tastes, except the TQ.
The amount should be 1/4 ounce (1/2 TBS) of TQ per every pound of Ground Meat.

 

Here it is panned up in two pans 3.5 lbs each

 

Here it is going into the smoker (using Pit Masters choice Pellets and a 12" A-Maze-N tube)

 

Current temp is at 140° and should be ready to pull in out in a bit. 

 

More Pics when I remove from smoker.

 

Thanks for looking

Thanks for the comments guys. Been busy and forgot to post pics of it sliced and packaged. I packaged it in 8oz pack and we have been eating some as well. It came out really good this time. My son was pretty happy as he can take some back to his dorm when he goes back.

 

Thanks for looking.

I just tripped over this----Glad I didn't miss it completely!!Thumbs Up

 

Looks Great Link!!:drool----:points:

 

I love that stuff, and if I was going to omit anything it would be the fennel seed & anise seed, like you did.

 

I'm glad you like it---I never did it with straight Venison, but even my Deerbugrs are only 50% Venison.
