This recipe was actually intended as a breading for venison cutlets but I modified it a bit and used it as a rub on my deer roast this weekend. It turned out wonderful and adds a nice nutty flavor to the meat. 2 cups of pecans, roasted and then chopped fine 1/2 cup bread crumbs 3 Tbls. of your favorite spice blend (I used my normal rub blend but here is your chance to be creative!) Lay the pecans out on a cookie sheet and roast in the oven on 350 for about 15 min. Let cool and place in a food processor, chop very fine. Combine with remaining ingredients. I use mustard slathered on the meat to hold the rub on. As this makes a big batch you can freeze what you don't use or store in an airtight container.
