Venison Neck Roast, what is your suggestion?

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by azbohunter, Dec 3, 2014.

  1. I recently returned from a archery deer hunt in KS and added two deer to the freezer, one buck and one doe.

    In past years (pre-smoker days) I have always taken the neck and slow roasted it at about 225, sometimes overnight in the oven. I would add a tad of liquid, cover tight with foil and forget it. Then I would pull it and make a variety of things such as taco meat, green chilli etc. It has always been very good and a big hit but now that I am into smoking I am looking for ideas for something different.

    I was thinking maybe just smoking it low and slow like I would a pork butt with foiling at the end and use it as I have in the past. I am open for any and all ideas?

    And I am sure someone wants to see what the neck roast came off of!   [​IMG]

    Nice Deer Smoke it low and slow 225 to 240 if you can, let it go till tooth pick tender 200* roughly. Salt, Pepper, Olive Oil , maybe a pinch of garlic. Finish it and send to me I miss hunting.
  3. tropics,

    Thanks for your input...would never get to you in the mail, sorry!

    Do you think foil and liquid at the end? Put it in a pan or on a rack?

    I have never done any venison with the exception of "Bears Unstuffed Snack Sticks".

    Foiling would help to keep it from drying out. Don't forget make the Barely soup  with the bone. OMG now you owe me a keyboard drooling.
  5. Hey, the Barley Soup sounds really good, and my wife loves it too! And it is healthy eating...Might have to leave a little of the meat on it  [​IMG]

    I would try smoking for a couple hours and then cook like you always have. Neck meats is very flavorful and makes great tacos and chili and such.

    I was thinking the same as Reddog. Smoke , pick all the meat and use the Bone as Your Barley soup , then the picked meat becomes a great Chili ...[​IMG]
