  1. I'M OFFICIALLY HOOKED!!! Today was my first time smoking meat….

    I just took a couple of my test pieces of venison tenderloin off the grill and they are fantastic!! I can't wait to do more and experiment and learn!! 

    Here is what I did:

    I soaked the pieces in a brine for a day

    * 1 gallon water

    * 3/4 cup of salt

    * 1/2 cup of soy sauce

    * 1/4 Worcestershire sauce

    * 1/2 cup brown sugar

    * 1/2 cup molasses

    * 1 tbsp rosemary

    * pepper to taste

    I rinsed the venison after it brined

    Then I rubbed it on one side with Jeff's Rub and wrapped it in bacon

    Smoked it just below 250 until the temp was at 140 degrees using a mixture of apple and Jack Daniels chips
