    Doing a smoke for a poker game tonight. 2 hind quarters on venison and 1 bear. The bear and 1 venison I added a rub last night. The other venison I wrapped in bacon. I naked venison (no bacon) and the bear I will in a few hours spike the temp to over 400 degrees for approx 30 minutes. What I am trying to do is give it a bark to seal in the juices like a butt. I use this technique on my pork loins and I creates a nice thin crust on the loin. Here are some photos.

    You guys are killing me with these bear posts . I'm looking at a tanned bear hide right now and there aint a lick of meat left from it . [​IMG]

    Got this close last fall ( separate sets of tracks )

    Ended up with bear tag soup [​IMG]

    Looking forward to the rest of the smoke . Including the two versions of venison .

    Well it all came out good. Both the venison hind quarters came out well and good comments on both. Also the bear was real good. I think bear lends itself real well to spicing up like pork. I think the spiking of the smoker temp works. I have done this with pork loins and they are allot more moist.
