My Friday afternoon venison smoke. First time using my AMNPS.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
FIrst off I want to throw a shout out to DaveOmak for his slanted foil roof for the AMNPS using a hanger for support. It was easy and works very well and another shout out to Todd from Amazen Products. Love his generator and his customer service so if you havent gone out and bought one of his products you should....





Now to the Q view I placed the venison in the smoker about 1030 am central time. I have it set at 250 and using my new maverick ET-732 I am monitoring the smoker and meat. I sat the meat in the fridge overnight in an italian dressing marinade and then this morning got up and dried it off. I applied a simple rub using garlic, onion, salt, and pepper. I am using A-MAZE-N maple pellets with a small accent of some pecan little by little throughout the smoke. 

Here is the before picture. I will take some more and let yall know how it turns out.

Looks good so far. I have to agree on the AMNPS. If you don't have one you should!

Finished product. IT of 145-147. I pulled and foiled at 135.



I will serve for dinner with mashed taters and asparagus. Hope the wife likes it. I am telling her its beef so she will eat it. Lol. After she's finished telling me how good it is then I will let her know its venison.

Happy smoken.

Thanks guys, I always have to lie to her and my parents when I cook venison and other game meats. My wife, when she finds out the truth shes fine with it and understands, but my parents almost seem mad sometimes. Needless to say I dont cook anything besides beef and chicken when my parents come into town. I think they are missing out on some tasty treats. I definitely like the pellet smoker but I need some practice with it. At one point during the smoke my ET 732 spiked and the temp gauge read 300 deg. I went outside and my smoker gauge said the same thing. I opened up the smoker to check and nothing seemed out of the ordinary. I adjusted the temp on the outside from 275 to 250 and everything else went fine for the rest of the smoke. No idea what happened.

Looks great Leo.  I've tried passing off venison as beef with my wife...it didn't work!

 

Hope your luck was better than mine.

 

Nicely done and nice q-view!

When i Get a deer. The wife starts getting out the cutting boards. Then while we are boneing it. She will reach and grab the piece  have half boned. She would rather have a cow. But she won't run from a deer.

Happy smoken.
