  • CPT Midnight,
    For the best elk roast buy a slab of beef rib roast trimming from a butcher shop and wrap it around the elk and tie. Cook it with your best beef rub at 225-275 until the internal temp is 130. Let it rest for 20-30 minutes and enjoy. Last year Minion and I got a real nice spike that ate like candy.
