My first fatty: Caribou

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Shortly after finding the forum I smoked my first fatty. I have a freezer full of Caribou, from a hunt Canada earlier this year, so I used a back strap in the fatty. Since the caribou has no fat, this is a perfect way to prepare it.

I started by marinating the back strap in milk over night. I used one pound of sweet Italian sausage and one pound of country sausage. I also used fresh mushrooms, garlic, jalapenos and cheddar cheese. Wrapped in thick cut bacon.

For my first attempt it was very good. But next time I will increase the veggies and cheese, and season the sausage.
