While the Mrs is away

So, since she is not a big fan of wild game and she is off making wedding plans with the daughter, I decided to get out some elk ribeyes.  There were three in the package.  Cut about 1" think, 4" long and 3" wide.  VERY LEAN as you can see.  Sprayed with a little butter spray then salt and pepper.  Direct heat at 550 for 60 seconds each side.  WOW!!!  Home Run.  I did settle for minute rice and a salad instead of a baked potato, but WOW.  Since this is Veterans Day, I would like to thank Chris Hickman (a soldier from Wyoming who gave me the meat) for his service.imageimage

    Looks good...never had elk.
    Green egg, dead animal and alcohol. The "Boro".. TN 
  • Alot like beef.  Same texture.  A little sweeter.  As you can see it is VERY lean.  There were a couple bites that I could almost taste venison but most all just tasted like beef.
