    I didnt get it sliced but I whipped out my super sharp knife.  I had to try some.




    This turned out perfect.  DRY like we like.  You can see how dry it is by the way the meat cracks when it is bent.

    Gonna shave this super thin for SOS or just to snack on.

    I got the idea from Bear..

    All thou I changed the cook time, I used the same cure, brown sugar.

    Thanks Bear.

    Hey Adam!

    I'm glad you gave me a heads-up about this fantastic post!  And great timing on this too, as my husband is heading off to deer camp next week.  With any luck he'll bring home a white-tail and I can try this out on one of the hind quarters.  Were these hindquarters deboned?  You did a really nice job on them, they look great. And I love the color on that dried venison!

    I really enjoyed reading your post, thanks so much for sharing your process!  And great pictures, too.

    Hope you have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

    Yes it was de boned. Once deboned you kinda have chunks of muscles that I then seperated.

    That looks great and I am sure it has a nicer texture than taking to an IT of 180°F...JJ
