      After trying about 8 different recipe's, this was the best. I did change the meat to three pounds ground venison and 1 pound ground beef suet. The Spice mix is excellent. In one batch I added a ground hot pepper, and in one batch I used beer instead of milk. All were excellent.

      This is a great recipe. After reading other reviews I made sure to use fatty pork. I also added 1/2 tsp coriander and 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper. I also substituted dark beer for the milk. Once I received the raves on these brats I have tried variations using wine instead of milk, added 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, added jalepeno peppers and horse radish in one batch. Lately I have been making a large base recipe (30 lbs) and dividing and making a number of different varieties at once.

      Just what I was searching for!!! And I had been searching for the right recipe for weeks. The pork shoulders I used were a bit leaner than I would have liked and I will make sure I have fattier pork for the next batch, but the flavor was perfect. I should have known someone from "the County" would come up with this. We northern New Englanders like our venison.
