Made a 25lbs batch and used pork fat and port trim mixed in. We may have used a bit more than 25lbs, perhaps around 26-27 and it came out great. Not too strong like the Garlic/Chili we made earlier. The Chipotle Bourbon has a sweet flavor to it with a little kick. We stuffed them in to hog casings and they came out just fine. Could actually make them in to sausage patties too.
The initial bite is good but it has a weird after taste. I followed the directions and mixed it with 25 lbs of venison/ pork mixture. In my opinion, it is way too strong. If i were to make it again i would put about 1/4 of the seasoning in that it calls for. I have been mixing with 50/50 with plain hamburger to dull down the seasoning and it is still on the strong side.
This new seasoning got a mixed review. The rest of the family liked this one but it was a little sweet?/strong? for me. Word of note - the recipes call for X number of teaspoons. When we have made some of the other seasonings using level teaspoons our family has a hard time tasting the flavors so I used heaping teaspoons and they've come out good. This was the first time with this seasoning so next time I may try to tone it down a bit. But that may just be our family. Experiment!
Goes great with the habanero cheese!

Backwoods Chipotle Bourbon fresh sausage
It was new so I had to try it. A nice subtle heat with a light sweet flavor, great for a breakfast link or a sausage, egg, cheese,muffin. Definitely one to try
