Merry Christmas everyone... up at 0230 here in NW Arkansas. DH bought me a Masterbuilt electric smoker for Christmas and I seasoned it yesterday and just started at 6# Venison roast in it! I have been reading the forum for days trying to learn this process and decided to join in. I have lots of interests including cooking. I would not call myself a gourmet cook, more like and 'experimental chef'! I have 2 grown sons, one of which is an avid hunter who is always bringing me venison and I had yet to find a really good way to cook it. Then a friend at work brought in some smoked venison, OH BOY! I saw the light! Anyway like I said, up at 0230 and got the roast started at 0330. I had marinated it and added some Stubbs pork rub. I have a turkey brineing and will start it around 0700. We should have a great Christmas Dinner!
