So I was digging in the freezer and found a venison roast, hiding near the bottom from last year. Now, what to do with it? I was searching around and came across two older posts from Bearcarver. Rare Roast Beef Smoked Venison Dried Beef (Very nice posts by the way Bear!!!!!) My initial thought was to just do the roast like Bear did with the beef sirloin. Smoke it rare, slice, and freeze in small packages for sammies. But then I seen the dried venison with a cure, and that got me thinking about using cure. I mainly want to try and make some lunch meat out of this, but what method is the best? Right now I am leaning to making it like Bear's Rare Roast Beef. Or should cure it with some MTQ to soften it up a bit and then I can just refrigerate it instead of having to freeze in such small batches. Once it's made it will be eaten quite fast I'm sure, so I am wondering if cure would even be necessary, or would it improve texture for this application? Any ideas or opinions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for looking. I have it thawing in the fridge right now so I'll get some Qview going eventually.
