    I have used this baste/mop on wild game and domestic meats as well. Mostly for roasting but I feel it would adapt easily to smoking. Have at it folks and let me know what you think, I will be posting in Wild game and elsewhere using this recipe. And as always, this is a starting point. Have you made it better? Lemme know!

    This is a great baste/mop for wild goose, wild rabbit, bear roasts, venison roasts as well as domestic fowl and it is super on hams and pork in general
