Elk rump roast TQ w/ apple smoke

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I took some elk rump roasts, tied 'em up and brined them IAW TQ instructions for 11 days. I remmoved them from the brine and gave them a couple good rinses and then a 24 or so hour fresh water soak. After a few more rinses, I dried them, painted with mustard and rolled them in fresh cracked pepper. Into the smoker over some apple wood (Thanx BandCollector) for about seven hours to int temp of 145. I couldn't wait any longer...

No Cooler?

So, since it is Elk, you don't have to do the towel & cooler type of resting to get the meat tender?

That's my kind of smoke! We really do need to see a sliced piece though.biggrin.gif

This meat was cured using nitrates, It is to be sliced and eaten like lunchmeat.
The wrapping & resting you're talking about is done with large chunks of meat that are cooked from raw to 190 degrees or more and then sliced or pulled or whatever. I did put a foil tent over this right after the pics so as to keep it from drying out to fast..

Slicing pics are on the way...

Got me thinking I need to do another batch of Elk summer sausage. Looking forward to the slice and taste test!

Looks great. I have only had Elk once and it was horrible. It was over cooked and cold. If I had some that was cooked right I know I would love it. I should try this method with one of my venison roasts. PDT_Armataz_01_37.gif

Elk is the beef of wild game. It does not lend itself to overcooking though..
