No, no, no, no,, the key temperature is 225 degrees! Holy french fried wildebeest, don't cook too low! The Green Egg, that's a sweet smoker but my cheap little Weber does a fine job at a third the price. Why I'm so poor, cooking outdoors is the only way I can afford a hot meal.
Truthfully Humpaburn, the wife makes you do all the cooking and she won't allow your messy drunken butt in her kitchen. I don't blame her, I wouldn't cook for you either. Go for the Green Egg though. You need it when the wifes hungry relatives show up unexpectedly and begin chewing the legs on the dining table.

The only way I've ever cooked venison and had it come out halfway edible was to soak it overnight in a half buttermilk and half salt water bath.

The next day, I poke "holes" into the roast and place half cloves of garlic into each one, then salt and pepper it, and wrap the whole roast in about a pound of hickory cured bacon. After that's all done, I lay it on some heavy duty tin foil, surround it with quartered onions, quartered taters and some nice fat carrots cut into large chunks.
(If your veggies are cut too small, they'll disintegrate as it cooks and you'll just have a veggie "mush" around your venison when it's done).

Seal it really well in the foil and bake/roast for about 3 hours at around 300-325 degrees. You don't have to baste it because the foil wrapping and the veggies along with the bacon, will do the job...

About 45 minutes before you want to take it out of the oven, turn back the foil to expose the deer meat but still keep the veggies covered so they don't toast and get scorched and turn the oven down to around 250 degrees. This will help to brown the bacon wrapping, plus it also lets some steam and liquid escape so you can use the drippings to make a gravy if you want to.

Let the roast sit on the stove uncovered for about a half hour to let the meat "rest"..

Other than venison sausage, this is about the only way I can eat deer meat. The bacon gives it some much needed fat, the veggies flavor it up, and the overnight marinade and slow cooking tenderizes it.

I watched the first two parts of that saga. you'd think that Stewart girl would be "experienced" at something. And those little pansy boys on there...Well Liam Neison on Rob Roy and Richard Gere in First Knight get my thumbs up for hot, steamy scenes. LOL. I didn't see any point to the flick.

Whole Jamaican all spice berries give meat. good flavor. I began using them in my butt roasts , stews and briskest. Warms the flavor up. Also, cracked pepper seems to flavor food better. Rosemary and thyme I found are great on potatoes. All this talk about grilled food, fried meats. Now, I'm wanting barbecue pulled pork and a sweet tater casserole as dessert. Shame, shame;) Maybe some asparagus drizzled in a butter and lemon sauce. O yummy!

Chef Leo's ( chefleo.com ) Wild Game and Meat Rub can be bought online and the contents seem quite similar to NOPE's roast fixings. It contains garlic, chilles, Molasses, Coffee, Onion, and other spices.

They also sell a seasoning for "Camp Stew" with a recipe on the back containing 4 potatoes 4 tomatoes, 1/2 head of cabbage, an ear of corn (shaved) and a pound of smoked sausage with a teaspoon of their Camp Stew spice. I made that and it is pretty good vittles.

The last time I cooked deer, I cut the meat all off the bone and put it in a pot on the stove - add soy sauce and dried lemon peel. I almost covered it with water and boiled it until most of the water was gone. Check and see if it is tender and if not, more water and cook longer. Cook until most of the water is gone but don't dry it out. If you tweek the soy sauce and dreid lemon peel just right it is delicious! I think next time a little cayenne pepper.:)

Old scruffy wolf is a man of few words, such a man's words carry more weight, somehow.

Reminds me of a rhyme grandpa used to say when us kids chitter chattered too much;

There once was an owl that lived in an oak. The more he saw, the less he spoke.
The less he spoke, the more he heard.
Why cant we all be like that wise old bird?

I thought I talked too much. LOL. I live alone and have done so for about 9 years since the wife got sick and passed away. This thread is about 90% of my outside communication with people, so for the most part I try to get along with everyone. Sometimes that is not too easy and that is probably as much my fault as it is their's. LOL

I like the poem.

I don't think Ron's flicks ever have any point or real story behind them. They usually get down to the business at hand. It doesn't take much experience, just groan and chew bubble gum Ron will do the rest.

Don't go out tonight if you don't feel like it; no matter what anyone says, you won't end up having a good time if what you really want is to be curled up with a good book. It's time to recharge your batteries, so indulge in all those things that make you feel whole wheat again.
