Venison Backstrap

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Can anyone give me ideas on what to marinate a venison back strap in? I am planning on wrapping it in bacon like a pork tender when I smoke it?

Thank s.

I like to marinade mine in soy sauce, minced fresh garlic, worchestershire,Dijon mustard, red pepper flakes and a few tablespoons of honey. For at least half a day. Of your feeling lazy buy Allegro seasoning and add red pepper a tablespoon of Dijon and honey.

Thank you for the reply. When I tried Allegro in the past on wild game it cam out to salty. But maybe the dijon and the honey would counteract the salty flavor.

That is absolutely why I do that. The Dijon tang really cuts the savory saltiness of the soy or Allegro

I just cooked one yesterday and didn't marinade at all. Used a coffee based rub and wrapped it in my homemade bacon:

That looks very good. What else is in the rub besides coffee?

Thanks.

I like to marinate mine in equal parts Italian dressing and Dales seasoning and add a little red pepper flakes to taste.
