To anybody out there who can help me. I have a new egg that my son from Colorado bought me and my wife this past spring. We live in Mid-Michigan. We use the egg, would like to more, but we are not home as much now that we have retired. I have cooked fish, steaks, chops, and chicken, we love all the food that I have cooked so far. My friend who still deer hunts brought me over a 3 lb. roast (Venison).[p] I was wondering if anybody had a simple but a very good receipe for this roast on the Egg. I most definately want to try this roast on the Egg, but would like someone's experience that they would not mind sharing with me.[p] thank you much[p] Rich

    I use this marinade for venison. My hunter father-in-law thinks it's perfect! JCA (W Michigan)

  • Rich,
    take a bottle of kraft Italian dressing top it off with treiyaki sauce. slice some fresh garlic and insert pieces in the roast pepper and garlic salt the roast to taste Merinate over night.
    I use a mixture of apple cherry and maple wood in the smoker. dont over cook pink in the center is where i like it.

  • Walt,[p]Fellow Mid Michigander here...[p](1)The issue with venison is there is no fat. I would make sure to trim off all the membrane (silver skin) it tastes bad and the texture is worse. Marinade it with your favorite stuff, at a minimum of overnight. Italian dressing would be good. I would even consider injecting some to get fat/oil inside. Season the out side with a rub of some sort. Dizzy Pig "Cow Lick" is a good choice, Montreal Steak seasoning is good too.[p]I would layer strips of bacon over top of the roast. SLow roast it indirect Be sure not to over cook the roast. The slightest amount of over cooking will make it quickly into leather.[p](2) My second idea is to cut the roast into 3/4 inch thick "Sizzle Steaks", if that is an option for your type of roast. Marinade them really well, similiarly to the roast above and rub them. Get your Egg nice and toasty, say 600 degrees or so. Do a quick sear on both sides and I think they will be cooked to medium rare.[p]
