First make the brat seasoning by combining equal parts of the sea salt, white pepper, celery seed, mace and 1 tablespoon of the sage. Set aside.

Step 2

Using a meat grinder or food mixer with a sausage grinding attachment, grind the pork butt and jowl fat twice until combined and a smooth consistency.

Step 3

Add 2 ounces of the prepared brat seasoning to the ice water and mix until it forms an emulsion then add to the pork mix.
