I have to AX a question. Has anyone done venison ribs on the BGE? I just speared a deer and made the back strap into chops. So now I have rib sections left. Any ideas will be greatly appreciated. Have a GRRR . . .ATE Day! ! !

  • When I have tried they dried out severly. There is no fat on them to keep them moist. If you are going to try it, I would reccomend covering them with bacon to add the fat.

    very little meat and lots of tallow. Deer tallow is nasty, bitter, awful tasting stuff.

    Ribs generally get tossed. There is about 4-5 pounds of meat in there, but the amount of work to separate the good meat from the fat isn't worth the effort.

    If you have dogs, however, they make a great dog treat. Cut them into individual ribs and cook them hot and fast until they turn jerky-like in consistency.

    Your best bet is to bone them out and use for chili or hamburger meat.

    x2 this is what we do. Tried the ribs once, it wasn't worth it.
