Venison Pastrami

post #1 of 52
Thread Starter 
I made some pastrami from a small roast off of the hind quarter of a little buck I got this deer season. I actually made two of them. lol

The cure...this is enough for 5lbs of meat
5 tablespoons Tender Quick
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon ground paprika
1 teaspoon ground bay leaves
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

I mix the cure, rub onto the meat and shake off any excess..

I wrap it and let it cure...this batch cured for 5 days.
Then I soak in fresh water for a couple of hours...

Before smoking, I season it with a mixture of garlic, allspice, crushed juniper berries, onion powder, crushed bay leaves and mustard seeds...

Then put it on the smoker with a bit of hickory...

After smoking, I wrap in foil and fill the pouch with beef broth. It steams a bit and makes sure the pastrami is moist.
I let this sit for at least 30 minutes...

I like it with spicy brown mustard, melted cheese and some twangy green tomato dill pickles.

Thanks for checking out my venison pastrami Qview. :)

Looks delicious, you never quite impressing us..... That is the type of meat to serve to those that say they do not like deer meat; tell them what they ate right after they compliment you on it !!!
