Larry, after doing a bit of research I find that most lamb sausage recipes call for grinding lamb that has been only minimally trimmed of fat. Overall lamb sausage is a fairly lean type of product. When a recipe does call for added fat it calls mostly for pork fatback at about a 20% ratio.
As much as I like lamb I have never made lamb sausage and might give it a try sometime soon. The information here is from my recipe archive and not from personal experience with making that type of sausage. Hope this helps!

yo,
thank you ,srmonty for the info.

on pork and beef the average fat content is as follows,

shoulder and chuck [front of animal] is 20 %

loin and sirloin [upper middle] is 15%

ham and round [tail end] is 10%.

my homemade sausages never get added fat.

i find 10% meat to lean to make sausages without binder-filler.
this helps keep in the natural fat and doesnt dry out the sausage.

im wondering if lamb is generally the same content as
porky and elsie??

remember to wrap that rascle
