Deer sholder

  1. Has anyone had any luck with whitetail deer shoulder?   I do a pretty fair roast in the oven, but would really like to smoke one.

    I've always used my shoulder for burger or sausage, but try smoking one and let us know how it turns out.
    Heck I might try one next yr...

    I'd brine/cure it and then smoke it at around 225 until the IT got to around 150-160, then wrap it up for completion.
  4. I will definitely try that.     I have always ground it up for hamburger, or sausage.   Last time I roasted a shoulder in the oven it came out great .I put the deer shoulder in a pan, add 3 cups chicken broth.  Seal with aluminum. Bake for 6 hours at 200 deg.

    Be sure and seal everything in the pan..
