How much cheese in 10 lbs of brats
« on: September 21, 2018, 10:31:16 am »
Well, after years of searching for high temp cheese where i live (Edmonton ab) i have finally found some.  Now, having never used this before, what is a good amount to put in a 10 lb batch of smoked bratwurst? Im really stoked about trying this cheese but don't know what works so any advice from the veterans would help alot.

Thanks
Corey

Meat to cheese ratio of 5 to 1. 10 lbs meat = 2 lbs cheese. Curious if the cheese you bought was pre-cut into cubes? I also put some cubed jalapeƱo peppers in mine for a little heat and nice colour .
It's going to take a lifetime to smoke all this.

Did my 10 lbs of brats, they turned out great. You can definitely taste the cheese, its stronger than i thought it would be, really cheesy taste.  The 5 to 1 seemed about right. If i was to do snack sticks that you eat cold the 5 to 1 may be a bit much. I would probably reduce it about 1/3rd. For a sausage you grill or cook its fine.

Thanks again for the info
