Venison Hind Quarter

edited 5:23PM in EggHead Forum
Help :-( recently was given an entire deer hind quarter and was hoping for some ideas.
Initial plan is like a good beef roast, maybe something along the lines of a rib roast. Quick sear and then a slow roast at say 300/350.
I am wide open to ideas as it's the first time I've done one of these. I am cooking it during the Dizzy Pig pre-season practice round we are having next weekend at Woo-Doggies.
Thanks in advance for any and all ideas.

    Hatch, I took a vension ham and deboned it and then used some hot greek rub (oregano, basil, red pepper flakes, plus some other stuff) and then spread some spinach and feta cheese on it. ROlled it up, tie it with butcher twine and then cooked to an internal of 155. It was tender and it went fast.

  • Hatch,[p]My favorite technique for venison ham.[p]1. Marinate overnight w/ your favorite marinade....if you want specifics on my favorite let me know.[p]2. Venison is extremely lean and is prone to drying out. So, lard the roast w/ bacon by partially freezing the bacon, then cut diagonally into pointed slivers (.5" - 1"). With a paring knife, stab the meat to make little pockets for the bacon. Then, stuff the bacon into the pockets and push all the way into the meat.[p]3. Smoke w/ Hickory around 250 until 160 internal. Use a mop sauce along the way to keep it from drying out.[p]I've never tried roasting as opposed to smoking, but I'm sure that would be good as well. Venison has somewhat of a gamey flavor which not everyone would appreciate. In my opinion, the smoke helps to reduce the overall gamey taste.[p]Please let us know how you do your's and the results.
  • StumpBaby,
    Thanks for ideas I think I might go with the first one. Can never find a bike rack when you need it.[p]Beers
