Smoking Venison?

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by rik, Nov 17, 2006.

  1. I have a freezer full of Elk and want to smoke some it, even maybe make jerky in my smoker. I was wondering if anybody had done this before and could pass along some tips. I am new to smoking and could use any advice offered. I have a smoker with a external firebox. I live in Colorado and have access to most types of hardwood for smoking.
    Thanks for any advice offered!

    Rik, welcome to SMF. Check out the Jerky forum and the Wild Game forum in the Smoking Meat (and other things) section.

    Welcome from up the road near Boulder. Enjoy that elk. Do you hunt down south?
  5. Yes we do. I hunt with several friends in the Spanish Peaks Wilderness area. We have been hunting there for several years now and this is the second elk we have pulled out of there. Do you hunt the NW part of the state?

  7. Welcome to SMF. You should try apple stix with that elk. Yum!
  8. Wow that sounds good. Right now I have a turkey in the smoker. I used a William's & Sanoma brine my wife bought and it has apples in it. I'm looking forward to seeing how my first turkey comes out!

    I have never hunted, but am becoming very interested. I'd like to tag along with some some guys here at work in the near future to get a taste of it all. How was the turkey??
  10. It camer out really well. I posted some pictures in the turkey portion of the forum. I was out bird hunting today and got a couple of pheasants. I plan on smoking them in the near future also.
  11. Welcome aboard Rik. I smoked pheasant the 1st time out (along with ribs) and the pheasant came out real nice. Never had pheasant taste that good ever.
