    10% is a minimum, 15% is nice and juicy.

    I use 5% for all game burger. When making patties for the grill I knead in some butter. Yum.

    I add no extra fat. I love the leaness of wild game meat. Its all in the way you dress it in the field, how fast you freeze it and the way you cook it. PERIOD

    I add 15 % beef tallow. I use only the good white hard stuff and not the fat. I always grind it twice to get the consistency that I want and to mix it all together. My whole family much prefers moose burger to beef burger.

    I agree with Mr. Pid, and cut in a couple tablespoons of butter before cooking on the grill, otherwise, it's nice to have lean meat. Since fat turns rancid because it won't freeze, my motto is "less is better!"

    We've always gone with 15%.

    We ate moose burgers last night, and they sure were good!
