Default tips on grinding bacon burger?

Me and a buddy are going to attempt grinding our own bacon burgers this weekend or Friday night. I was wondering if anyone had any tips, seasoning,ratio, storage, etc. 50-50 ???
We grinded our own patty sausage, went a little overboard with the spices. We have the meat deboned and has been in ice water for about 4 or 5 days draining the blood. He bought the slab bacon tonight ( not sure how much)... Might try some more sausage as well any spice mixes or recipes may be helpful as well. Thanks guys....

I mean, if you need a taste tester, I'm pretty much a professional.

My brother in law made his own last year. He used a 75 deer to 25 bacon ends ratio. The burgers came out fantastic.

I do 60/40, deer/pork, then add 6# of bacon ends and pieces to every 30# of GM. Cost less than buying that much bacon and you still get the bacon flavor.

I buy the bacon ends and pieces in the box, mix 50/50 with no seasoning. Freeze in 1 quart freezer bags. Work all the air out of bag and flatten uniform. Take out the freezer frozen, rip open bag and cook in frying pan, cut in squares to make 4 burgers and season to taste. I get tired of the same flavor so I change it every time I cook it.

Here is what I do and it is perfect in my opinon.
30lbs of deboned deer meat
10lbs of the cheapest hamburger meat
a 3lb box of bacon pieces.

It comes out great!

I usually get a 3lb box of bacon ends and pieces from Wal-Mart. I'll grind it up and then grind 9lbs of venison; mix the two by hand and then regrind that batch. Makes 12lbs of good ground meat for hamburgers, taco's, chili, etc.

If I was to mix up a batch and add sausage seasoning, would that make some good patty sausage, you think?
