I'm late to the party but last fall I mixed ~30 lbs of venison trimmings (2 white tail and 1 axis), a 12 lb packer cut brisket and 6 lbs of the cheapest fattiest bacon I could find. On the recommendation of a friend. **** good, according to the googled fat ratios of brisket and bacon it should make an ~80/20 blend.

I recently started saving and freezing the fat I trim from briskets during the summer to mix in with venison to make burger in the fall. Saves the cost of buying beef fat later. But for the meat mixture I always go with all venison, but I'm blessed with a freezer full of venison each year so shortage is not a problem.

Tried the 50/50 Brisket cut for the first time about 3 years ago... Now, everything but the back-strap and tenders go in the grinder with brisket.
partition out the fatty mix for burgers... lean mix for spaghetti, tacos etc. Wife and kids love the stuff.

Haven't done 50/50, but have done 75/25 for years and tastes great.

Brisket all the way
Just finished grinding and packing 2 deer away. I have been using half a brisket to each deer. Works out to a perfect taste. Hardest part is finding briskets on sale.

Another here, I always do 50/50 with brisket.

I’ve done the 50/50 with brisket for years. It keeps the family from getting burned out on straight venison burger in all types of applications throughout the year.
