    My advice is you take that roast and cut it in steaks about ½ inch thick. Let them sit in Italian dressing for about an hour. Grill em hot but not searing hot, say 450-500 degrees on a raised grid about 3 minutes a side which should give you a nice rare steak with no sear. Good stuff.[p]Thick steaks good for beef…not so for venison. [p]I have had very few venison roasts that I liked. Just not enough fat to “get er done”.

    G.T.A.G.O.,[p]The italian dressing and garlic method is good, but I would lay a few strips of thick cut bacon over your roast while you are cooking. You'll need all that fat you can get.
