    We really like bratwurst so decided to use venison along with the pork butt to reduce the fat. The test patty got the wife's approval so guess I am on the right track.

    They look good.  I make tons of venison brats.  I also put mace in mine.

    I like mace or nutmeg in sausage but decided to try this with out either of them. We had some with peppers and onions and they were very good.

    Ya can't beat a good brat, especially if it has loads of onion and kraut on it.
