    I've got a bunch of ground venison thawing for a weekend snack stick cook.  It is already mixed as an 85% venison, 15% fatty beef ratio.  

    What if any additional pork or beef should I add?

    I'm thinking that it should be fine as is, but wanted to pose the question to the collective wealth of knowledge here before pulling the trigger.

    Seems a lot of guys like 70/30 Venison to Fatty Beef or Pork. Since you have 15% Beef, add 15% Fatty Pork Butt and let her rip...JJ

    I always do 80% pure venison no fat, and 20% ground pork butt with great results.

    I've always done 2/3 venison to 1/3 ground pork butt.  I know many people that run a 50/50 mix, but that seems like too much to me.  If I were you, I would add another 15% pork or fatty beef.  You don't want them too dry.
