Goose Snack Stick and Sausage Ratio??

  • Hi all,

    I am new to the sausage and snack stick game and was looking for some advice. I am confused when people talk about pork fat ratios when making these products with wild game (goose). I am planning on doing 50% pork butt (from the butcher shop) with 50% of goose breast meat. So, 20lbs of pork butt and 20lbs of goose meat.

    Does this sound right? Should I be adding some straight pork fat too? Just a newbie looking for some advise!

    @ddibara if you are going to make it 50/50 with goose and pork butt then there is no need to add straight pork fat to your product. Just make sure that your pork butt is untrimmed, you want a nice thick fat cap on it, to get you in the correct range. Hope this helped!

  • @jonathon Awesome, thank you!

    @ddibara What seasoning are you planning on using? We have a retail store attached to our offices and the old manager was a huge bird hunter and he made some amazing goose sticks. I think his favorite was the Habanero BBQ for goose but I’m sure they will all be good!

  • I just placed an order for the Willies seasoning and I may add some hot cheese! I will have to try the Habanero BBQ next time!

    I got ready to place an order an noticed many of the seasonings you carry are only available in quantities to mix 100# batches. Why are the batches so large? I make most of my summer sausage from a venison and pork mix after we’ve taken the cuts for steaks, made our ground and canned a few quarts. That being said doesn’t leave a lot for sausages, thus a 100# mix could last me years.
    Am I missing something?

    @RayStripling I would recommend using the powder and not the salt as it might make the end results to salty as for how much that is a matter of taste but remember you can add more at the end when you serve it but you cannot take it away.
