the thing you lose is the color and texture. Safe food practices should be followed as with any fresh meat product. you can add celery, lettuce, or radishes (1 oz per pound but no promises on the flavor or color). If you have any ham or bacon cure .32oz per pound ( a teaspoon for 5lbs of meat)but add sugar to cut the affect of the salt in the cure
Wild Turkey Sausage
I just ordered the super bind. Hopefully it will get here in time. If not I have carrot fiber onhand.
What about the seasoning?
@slotown I will generally add fresh peppers, onions and fresh herbs into my second grind to boost flavor.
@slotown Beer Brat is a good choice when making an all pork brat, I am not sure how it will do 50/50 with wild turkey. When I do wild game I tend to like to add a stronger tasting seasoning and Beer Brat, while very good, is more on the mild side. You could add a strong tasting beer to add some more kick to it. I wouldn’t use an IPA, Ive never had good luck cooking with them, a Barleywine style ale or maybe even a stout might work well though!
It should be ok, you may need to increase the fat percentage or add binder. it will get dry if you don’t. good luck

Thai peanut sausage!!!
Not to change your plans but, I did this with pheasant and it was great.
I found this recipe online.
3.5 lbs poultry
1.5 cups salted & roasted peanuts
1 cup Sticky, short-grain rice
3/4 cup Coconut milk
3 Tbs green onions, finely chopped (45g)
1/4 cup Chopped Garlic (36g)
1 cup Chopped Cilantro (35g)
30g Kosher Salt
22g Brown Sugar
6 tsp Hot Chili-garlic sauce (‘Rooster’-brand)-add more if HOT is desired
1 Tbs Sesame oil
6g fresh ground black pepper
5.5g Ground Galangal (option: ground ginger)
24mm or 28mm sheep casings
Cook & cool rice first.
Bone chicken, reserving all meat, fat AND skin. Chill until partially frozen.
Grind chicken with rice and peanuts through medium plate (4.5mm).
Add salt, coconut milk & green onions to mixture; mix well.
Add remaining ingredients & mix thoroughly until sticky paste is formed.
Stuff into casings; tie off into 4.0" links. Air dry until casing are dry to touch.
I sous vide mine to 150deg for 2hrs. Then brown before serving.
Tommyd I’m so doing that! I love Thai Peanut EVERYthing!

It is good.
We like to serve a chub on a small bed of rice next to 4-5 bang bang shrimp.
Everyone loves it.
Jonathon Superbind came in just in time. Total meat weight is 11 pounds. How much should I mix in? Instructions on bag is a bizarre % which I don’t understand. Thanks.
@slotown Morning… The directions say, 3#'s binds 100 #'s of meat… Soooo, that’s 3% … As this is your first usage, I would recommend 2 1/2% so you can get a feel for the product… To figure out the 2 1/2% amount… 11#'s X 0.025 = 0.275#'s of Superbind… 0.275 X 16 oz/lb = 4.4 oz… 4.4 x 28.35 gms per ounce = 125 grams… If you switch to the metric system, things get easier, but you will need a grams scale… 11#'s x 454 = 4,994 grams or 5,000 grams is really close enough… then multiply 5,000 x 0.025 = 125 grams… A small grams scale can be had from Amazon… I recommend a 0-100 gram range for accurate cure weighing… about $12… I looked and didn’t see one available from Walton’s…
daveomak I go the metric route myself. I will do the calculations and write them on the packages as soon as I receive my order. It sure simplifies the process!
