    Ground 15# of deer meat to make into snack sticks. Forgot to thaw out some pork. DUH!! I usually mix it half and half. I have some pork fat that I saved from a hog I butchered last fall. It would thaw pretty quickly. How much should I add to my 15# of deer meat so the finished product isn't too dry?

    most people do 20 to 30 percent or 3 to 4.5 lbs. I like my sticks a little leaner at 10 percent or 1.5 lbs

    Thank you. 

    Guess I'll try 25%. Never did it like this before. Good place to use up the pork fat.
