I've heard brisket burgers are amazing! What parts need to be trimmed off before grinding? I've never ground a whole brisket before and was wondering if any & all the fat can go in or if some should be discarded.

The only one I ground came out to lean. I should of added all the fat back in and maybe more.

The texture and taste should be outstanding. What type of seasoning are you going to use? adding any smoke to the grind first? From looking at that brisket, that grind would be tasty in a summer sausage or any sausage recipe that uses beef/pork combination. 🍻

I find it needs some other cuts plus fat from same added to suit my tastes.
You can't use any of the hard fat and by the time it's eliminated there's not enough left to get to 80/20.
Most folks mix chuck and chuck fat with to reduce the "gamey" taste and make it more like ground beef or ground chuck.

Brisket burgers ARE good. If you don't trim it'll be at least 70/30. Depending on your preference you can get pretty liberal with trimming fat off of a packer and get a leaner and less fatty 80% mix.

What about trimming the brisket and adding some pork belly? Would add fat and some good taste??
