    Deer Backstraps, advice needed

    I've got a couple fresh backstraps that I plan to throw on the smoker Saturday along with a couple pork butts. I've never smoked the backstraps before and could use advice temp, marination, etc... from someone with experience, so fire away. Thanks

    I recently purchased a Brinkmann Smoke'n Pit horizontal smoker ($200 variety) with an offset firebox. This is my first smoker and I have no past experience smoking meat. I broke it in yesterday on a small pork butt and a slab of spare ribs. For fuel I used aged hedge (osage orange) and...
