Venison & bacon burgers

Post by Pigmeister » Sat Jan 27, 2007 9:37 pm

1 1/2 lbs of pure ground venison (no fat added)
1/2 lb of ground bacon
1 egg
1/2 cup crumbled soda biscuits
1 tbs worster
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tbs Montreal steak spice

Grind the bacon and mix in with the ground venison. Add remainder of ingredients and mix well. Refridgerate for 2 hours and form into patties. BBQ or grill to 150. As ground venison is very lean it is hard to grill or Q without drying out. Instead of adding plain old pork fat I thought I would try some el cheapo bacon I bought for 1.29 a lb and it turned our extremely tasty. I cooked it in my offset at 290 for about an hour with grapevine for smoke.
If it can't be smoked it ain't worth eating.

Sounds really good, Marcel. Good way to keep the venison moist.

Thanks Peter. I have tried putting butter in the meat for moisture but it if you didn't get a real good seal when searing the patties it would run out. The bacon made a huge difference without altering the flavour of the meat. It still tasted like venison.
