    As long as smoker was going to be operating, may as well do some bird drums for tomorrow.

    Looks great. Thats the temp I take my roasts and straps to as well and let sit of 10min or so. Have a few roasts to use up myself before season starts here on 9/15.

    Nice and yum. Backstrap is my favorite.
    The right side appears to be more than backstrap. Shoulder or haunch?

    I was cleaning the freezer yesterday and noticed I still have a backstrap and haunch. Plan to make dried venison out of the haunch.

    Feather flicker season starts tomorrow on my side of the river.
    I'm not a bow hunter, but one of my boss's and a co-worker is (compound) bow and another co-worker is a crossbow hunter.
    I'm rifle and blackpowder (unless my wife books a vacation in the middle of that season, AGAIN)

    Looks like a perfect cook
    I love venison jerky , and back strap makes the best . Had a buddy that deep fried back strap. Fantastic . I just get the most use from mine in sausage and jerky . You nailed that , looks great .

    Optical confusion?

    My cousin cubed up backstrap and haunch, rolled it in Shore Lunch Cajun (fish) seasoning and deep fried. That was outstanding!
