    I have been wanting to try Bears recipe for a while now so I thought I would give this a try. I did not have all of the ingredients Bear listed and I am not a fan of Fennel or Anise seed so I changed it a bit.

    4 Pounds of Ground venison 

    Dry Mix:
    Black Pepper
    Red Pepper Flakes
    Three Onion Rub (Pampered Chef)

    Bell Pepper Herb Rub (Pampered Chef)
    Garlic Powder
    Onion Powder  

    Tender Quick at 1 TBS per pound.

    Wet and Dry mixed:


    4 lbs Venison


    Mixed and ready to sit till tomorrow


    Tomorrow I will smoke this and then slice it up.

    Thanks for looking

    My mini bear loaf went into the smoker today with a tube full of mesquite.


    Now it will smoke and then rest, get sliced and packaged.

    I cannot wait to try it.

    Ok here it is all sliced up. This came out fantastic! My son loves it and my wife likes it as well. So I will be making more of this in the future.

    This was such a hit with my son (and his girlfriend) that he said to me on Friday "the venison loaf is almost gone and I noticed you have not started a new batch yet". So a new batch was prepared and is now in the smoker.

    Ready for the smoker:

    So I sliced this up tonight and it is good. Made a few changes this time:

    4 Pounds of Ground venison 

    Dry Mix:
    Black Pepper
    Red Pepper Flakes (1 TBSP instead of 3/4 TBSP)
    Three Onion Rub (Pampered Chef)

    Basil Rub (Pampered Chef)
    Italian Seasoning

    Garlic Powder
    Onion Powder 

    Tender Quick at 1 TBS per pound.

    Going from 3/4 TBSP to 1 TBSP in the red pepper flakes made more of a difference in heat than I thought it would. Still very good but a bit hotter.

    Thanks for looking

    I recommend it, it is really good and very easy to make. You cannot go wrong with one of Bears recipes.
