My girlfriend and I decided to smoke a deer roast this weekend. I selected a fine roast from a nice mature doe shot this last fall (2005). She(jlloyd99) used a wonderful rub, that was delicious. I made some more mods to the ECB, to help air flow to the fire pan. It worked wonderful. I used a combo of oak, hickory, and maple, and smoked for several hours. We had some friends over and they still can not get over how good it was. I never knew that white tail could be so delicious. Smoking is a wonderful hobby and I try to encourage anyone and everyone to start, You will not regret it!!!!!!!!!
