Adding Pineapples to brats



  • So I am making some of the Supreme Pizza Brats with chicken thighs. Can I add some pineapple tidbits to the mixture and use the pineapple juice or apple juice in place of the water?
    Thanks

    @harpo79 Using pineapple chunks/juice can be a bit touchy as it contains a enzyme that denatures protein and makes binding difficult. You will find bromelain, which is in pineapple in most meat tenderizers because of this, it is why your mouth sometimes gets sore after eating lots of pineapple, if it breaking down the lining in your mouth!

    If you are going to add pineapple I would used dehydrated chunks and you will want to eat them quickly, don’t try to store them for future use, only make as much as you are planning on eating right away.

    Anyone else have any input or advice?

    @Jonathon How would you suggest to mix in fat with pre packaged ground venison? We butcher and prepack ground venison into 1 lb packages. Should we regrind the venison with the fat using a smaller diameter plate? or grind the fat separate and mix using a mixer? I assume the better option would also be true for snack sticks.
