Been searching around and finding all sorts of different answers... I have a boneless venison roast I'll be smoking for Turkey Day.. I'm trying to find out how many minutes/pound is generally accepted. I figured I'd just see what a boneless rump was and got about 30minutes/pound. Figured venison would be similar, but found some say 35 minutes, 1hr, and some say 1 1/2hrs per pound. Deejays says 1-1 1/2 hr/pound and to 160*, seems high. Going to bring it to about 140* IT at roughly 225-245*. Not brining, just a simple rub and topped with regular sliced bacon. Figured I'd use a chunk of hickory and apple wood.
