Thread: First attempt on the burgers !

  1. #1

    First attempt on the burgers !

    Finally decided to take the plunge and decided to mince my venison, turned out well in the end producing 40 1/4 pounders. What do others charge for this as i would be curious to know, i currently sell them for 5 for 4 in a tray? The sausages will be started on on Sunday as i'm just finishing the joints and steak.

    You wont go wrong at that price carl . Take into consideration of the trays, packaging, ingredients and manpower for presentation people will come back for more . If you go to some of the fairs they charge over the top prices for venison burgers....atb scott

    Very reasonably priced indeed,I was looking at beef burger in our local butchers and they were fractionally more for 4

    They look good, but 4 x 1/4lbers at 5 is quite expensive? That's 5/lb or 11/kg. You say it is your first go. Have you actually sold any at that price?

    im no expert by any means but love making the burgers n sausages and seeing folks reactions & just pushing preaching the eating of game in general etc and my own limited experience is that a 5 for 4x 1/4 pounders if neatly made and packaged / vacuum packed goes down a storm !!!

    just need to see what highland game or Donald Russell charge ( I know they are professional with big overheads etc) and folk are happy to pay that for vension & know / take your word whats gone into it.

    I love the professional guys stuff ive eaten it and its good but equally enjoy my own made ...maybe more so because im one who took it from field to fork I guess?

    doesn't have to be just vension...... rabbit.... pigeon... pheasant burgers!!! anything goes!!!
