    While reading around and trying to learn everything I can from you guys I see allot of people talking about pork trimmings. When I did some venison snack sticks this weekend I think I came up short on my fat content. So that brings me to wonder...... I know its going to very from butcher to butcher, but what is the average fat content in pork trimmings? Aside from separating all fat from the pork and weighing it out to get a precise measurement I'm trying to get a baseline. The trimmings I picked up for my snack sticks didn't have as much fat as I thought they would. Anyone wanna give me an approximate guess?

    Good question I have no idea. Maybe one of the resident sausage guru's will be able to help you out.

    For pork "trimmings" there is no way to answer that question.  Trimmings are just what one person trims off.  Most trim mostly fat, another might have more meat in it.

    Good luck and good smoking.
