    Hunted the last three seasons, and got zilch.  These were a gift.  A backstrap and another unknown cut.

    Marinated 24 hours in Dichicko's garlic peri-peri, let set to room temp, and done like a seared steak.  Heat soak to dome to 500, then 5 minutes to a side.

    Pull at 130 and then rest?  I have a couple of small venison roasts that I might try on the egg.

    I did a 'hot'tub' till 85° then grilled to 130°. Very tender and no gamie taste. I also only did a dry rub.

    By heat soak I mean getting the whole Egg body up to temperature.   A newbie error is to start a cook as soon as the thermometer registers the right temp, which means the dome is not really ready yet.

    For a hot cook I usually get the Egg upto 100 degrees higher heat than the tarkget, then slowly cool it down before starting the cook.

    Hot tub is to put in a zip-loc type of bag and dunk in hot water till core temp is what you want.
