My first Venison Roast

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I was given this roast and was not sure how to proceed. I have done backstrap before, but wanted to smoke this roast. After reading a few post.......I decided on Mojo....what else wink.gif

After a night in the fridge I cut slits in the roast and stuff some bacon slices along with some minced garlic....didn't have any cloves. Also a few strips across the top.

Also planned on some Chicken thighs.....just in case. PDT_Armataz_01_07.gif

Sprinkled with Memphis Rub.

Started the roast first. Wasn't really sure how long to do it, but target temp was 137º. Wood choice was hickory.

Chicken was done, atleast for the smoking part in a bit over 2 hours. From here to the hot gasser for crisping up the skin.

About 10 to 15 minutes on the grill and I have them the way the wife likes them........DONE !!!

Around 2 1/2 hours the roast came off and was wrapped in foil and placed in cooler.

On the rare side, just like I like venison to be. Nice flavor and the wife was very happy with it.

A little of Jeff's sauce for some dippin and dinner is on. PDT_Armataz_01_28.gif

Just a tip flash, although your end results looked great. I like to remove just about everybit of that membrane of the meat. But thats just me.

a bit rare for venison is the way to go unless in a slow cooker all day with water and stew. i eat venison steak and chops quite pink. looks good.PDT_Armataz_01_37.gif

FYI the first pic. that distinct goose egg shape of meat at the front bottom. that is the sirlion tip roast. the rest it the rump and hind quarter.

Excellent looking roast! I'm with White Cloud on the membrane part. Ours doesn't even get to the freezer with anything on it you can't eat biggrin.gif . Hunting season is only a month away and I've still got a freezer full. Need to start smoking.

Yeah, I am afraid I am a newb on smoking/cooking this type of grub. The only thing I hunt is fish. Got no problem with hunters though. I have serveral friends in Orlando that I trade fish for venison and hog each year. Pineywoods gave me some venison also. Varity is the spice of life PDT_Armataz_01_37.gif
