Venison Bratwurst

Recommended Posts

There was a thread a week or two ago about sausage and a recipe was posted for a breakfast type. Anyone have a brat type (raw, not smoked) that they would like to share. I'm butchering today and would like to try my hand at some.

With Brats, I've always found it easier to just by the seasoning mix pre-made. I have a recipe somewhere at home if you really want it I'll look for it... but again I don't even use it anymore. If you're making small batches, the cheap pack of brat seasoning at Fleet Farm makes 2 lbs and is actually very good. Buy two or three of those and you'll have a decent amount of brats. I mix my brats 50-50 with pork, but have done 70-30 in the past. I just prefer mine woth a little more pork fat in them. You don't even have to stuff it in casings, you can make it into brat patties for the grill! I do both casings and patties and a lot of people actually prefer the patties over the links. There are also other seasoning packs that will do 15lbs of meat and those are available at most sporting goods places.

Good Luck!

My wife doesn't like any braut, let alone venison, but she had two of them shocked.gif!

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....

      I was on a small north metro lake today and found between 2.5 and 4 inches. One of the spud bar holes I punched started spewing water up so definitely needs a little more time.

      I was out on Round Lake last night (12/9/17) for the first time of the year. I was very surprised to see 12 inches of ice. I checked a few other holes and found anywhere from 11-12 inches. Keep in mind, I was about 300 yds out from the southeast shoreline. I’m not sure if it’s consistent across the middle of the lake. I only saw one group with a snowmobile. All other groups walked out, at least where was.  Anyone have any reports for ice thickness on other lakes in the area?

      Alot of open water pockets on bigger lakes still, some people out on cannon on 3 inches about 60 yards or less from shore.

      Called baitshop, he said people are going out from beach and a couple houses out. Wouldn't say how much ice. Who's got an ice depth?

      Had great fishing out from McKinley in 28 FOW on Friday-Saturday.  Caught a great mix of dinks, eaters, and slot fish.  I ended up catching five 22-25" walleyes, but my guest on Saturday (Chris Larson) caught the largest at 25½".  Best action was using a chub on a plain hook, but small jigs and rattlers also had action.  Walleyes still didn't like the sucker minnows. I had 8½" of ice where I was (was 6½" the previous week).  But be very careful out there because there are bad spots as people have mentioned.
