    I bet Totonka Dust would be awesome on elk! Its sold thru Owens BBQ's website.

    I just realized you want a homemade mix. LOL Sorry....

    You might try Jeffs rub, I understand its good on everything.

    My all time favorite rub for elk is straight forward, salt, pepper, and garlic. Sometimes I'll add chipotle for a bit of a kick.

    I would stick with salt and pepper. Them steaks are a treasure and do not need to be embellished much. Elks taste mighty good. You are a highly fortunate young man. Don't cook em long. As they say..Knock off his antlers..wipe his ass..and run him on by.  lol

  7. Less is more when it comes to elk steaks, as in seasoning and cooking.  Very lean meat with the best flavor I have found.  Medium rare at the most with just a touch of salt and pepper works for me.
