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
