    i dont want to take credit for this. i followed cowgirls recipe.

    the tip venison roast was about 2.5 lbs. so i used 1/2 of the seasonings that were listed.

    i rubbed cure on it 10/2 so its cured 5 days.

    smoking at 250-275 on the uds. ill take it to 165 or so and wrap it.

    smoking on a 50/50 mix of charwood lump and birquets with 3-4 chunks of apple in the firebox.

    well i sliced it on the slicer. still a warm. looks good. could have cured another day or two and i think i should have pulled off an hr sooner. trial and error. its a tad dry. darn foil had a tiny hole and i lost my juices.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    but not bad. still warm. sliced thin for sammies. back in fridge. ill give it a chilled taste test tomorrow.
