Venison on the EGG

I have some fabulous venison tenderloins that I would love to grill using BGE.

What are your best/favorite recipes that I may try without getting the venison too dry.

Thanks in advance.

    Venison goes from great to gross with just a few degrees difference on internal temperature as a result of being so lean. Whether you wrap it in bacon or not, be mindful of not overcooking it.

    Do you have tenderloin (really small from inside the rib cage) or backstrap (slightly larger than a pork tenderloin)?

    If tenderloin, I would do something really hot and quick.

    One of my favorite ways is to rub either cut with plain yellow mustard, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Give it a quick cook to medium rare and it is usually a crowd pleaser even among those to citified for deer meat.

    The November 2009 issue of Field & Stream had some great venison recipes.
