Whole hind quarter?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Have any of you guys tried to take a whole hind quarter and do it like a cold smoked ham?  Been wondering about doing that for a few years, just haven't had the chance to do it.  Been hunting horns too much, but this year planning on tagging 4 doe at least after gun season.

Are you wanting to cure then cold smoke it???? I take it you are talking about venison??

Happy smoken.

Yep that is exactly what I am thinking.  Just wondering if anyone has tried it yet, and their results.

I have never done it. However all you have to do is treat it like a pig. It will be a lot dryer. I have done it with wild hog and it was to dry for my taste.

Happy smoken.

I did a hind quarter by boning it and curing in Pop's Brine. It was Pastrami like and very good.

Thanks Wood.  I was just thinking the who shebang, bone and all.  Literally quarter it out and do it without doing any cuts.  I figured it couldn't be much different you would think.

Just be careful to inject brine real good around the bones so they don't sour while the hind quarter is curing. Especially around the joints.

It's not that hard to bone out in 1 piece and it will cure faster & easier ! Then just roll and tie when you smoke it. Also cure & smoke the bones & shanks separately. Good for stock or soup.

Hey good idea about the bones, I could use the stock for the homemade dog food we make the dogs.

I stopped giving my dogs venison years ago, because they stay in the house with me. When you're watching tv at night there is no mistaking the aroma of a dog with deer gas !
