I Still Have Several Different Cuts, Steaks, Chops, Small Roasts,even Some Shanks. I Use It All. Being Very Lean Would You Perhaps Lard It Or Wrap It In Bacon? I Know That Grinding About 20% Bacon With It Makes A Good Burger.

I smoke venison a lot. And yes, bacon helps. Cut slits in the meat and stuff some bacon into the slits.
BTW, if it's not a problem for you, maybe next time you could post a question in the appropriate category. Makes it easier on the moderators. They don't have to keep moving threads around if they're in the proper place to begin with.

No skin off my nose brother. I used to moderate a huge forum and it's nightmarish to have to move things, because you have to read each and every thread. This particular forum is almost brilliantly laid out to not have to do that. But us members need to help when we can.

Hey Gunslinger ... you got any recipe ideas for venison that you would like to share?

My brother sometimes brings me some. Last year, I smoked a rump that he said was the best he ever had ( I think it had a lot of room for improvement) and now after being in SMF for awhile, I know I can do better.

What say you friend?

You've put me on the spot here.

Do you want any ole recipe? Or BBQ specific?
After being on this forum for a few months, it's almost unbelievable that there could be anymore BBQ recipes, but then I am constantly amzed at what folks come up with and post.
I do have a great chili recipe that I use the back-straps in. (ATTN: DEER HUNTERS-PLEASE DO NOT KILL ME FOR NOT DIPPING MY TENDERLION IN FLOUR AND FRYING. BOOOOOOOOOOOOORING
)
If you want it, let me know.

BBQ mainly ... however if you have a favorite non-BBQ to share, that would be great also!
Thanks Gunslinger

I knew that was coming.
I do 3 things with deer. Ground, jerky and what ever I want to with the tenderloins.
This was the first year in MANY that I didn't deer hunt. And still ended up with over 200 pounds in the freezer.
And never use the word "waste" until you've had my chili.

Well, some of the best recipes I've used are posted here. I do have a rub that is the best I've ever had and I think it is unique. That is to say, I don't believe any one's ever done it. That's a heck of a statement to make too. I hope I'm right. But I'm saving it for a competition, or I might even use it at the gathering. But I won't let it out until I know what others think.
Check the wild game threads and make sure to set it to go back to the beginning of the forum. There are some great recipes for venison there.

Some of the guys around here have the bits made into Pepperoni/Pepperettes sticks. Very good!
