Anyone have a recipe for making some? Going through the freezer and found one package of ground venison I have left. Figure I'll need to add some fat to them. I think they would be pretty dry otherwise. Beef or pork fat?

I've used the ground venison for chili & "Bambi Helper" before, both of which are very good BTW. But thought I'd try some burgers this time around.

When we travel and go for whitetail,or elk the packing house usually gives you your choice.Seems like we use pork for sausage.If they have some really fine ,fed out beef fat in 50 lb blocks it makes fine 80/20 burgers.
I do deer burgers all the time. Just add an egg or two, and some seasoning. I usually add some onion soup mix and/or some Pappys beef rub (that I received in the exchange, BTW), some garlic. Make my patties, throw in smoker with hickory until they hit about 120 or 130 degrees IT, then onto my hot propane grill until they hit 150 to char them up a bit. By smoking first, it retains a lot more moisture. They are never dry, and the best burgers ever. No added beef. If you are worried about dryness, maybe add about 10% beef, no more.
