Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Venison Questions

I love venison and I was curious what cuts you have done on the egg and how you did them.

(Also, if you know a good place in the Atlanta area to buy venison I would love to know!  I've been relying on friends and I don't get a supply all that often.)

    I don't do it too much different then beef. The big thing you have to remember is that there isn't much fat. So the times have to be adjusted so it doesn't dry it quickly

    I treat it pretty much like turkey, if I'm doing burgers I add a egg and bread crumbs to add fat to the mix. I know that defeats the purpose of being healthier but oh well.
    I raise my kids, cook and golf.  When work gets in the way I'm pissed, I'm pissed off 48 weeks a year.

    There are 2 ways to cook venison low and slow....crock pots or Dutch ovens or hot and egg direct heat works great....Loins are great marinated or just seasoned with salt/pepper or favorite rub, whole or cut into steaks....JUST DON'T OVERCOOK! Best venison will be pink to rare. Cook a whole loin just like beef tenderloin or pork loin. I'm from Wisconsin so can't help with finding a source in Atl...all of mine is harvested by me and my family....butchered by us as well. Hope this helps...
    Always having fun with the BGE!

    I put mine in a plastic bag and in some hot water till it's 100° then grill like beef. It doesn't dry out with so little time on the grill but you still get the grill flavor.
