    I know it`s not beef, but I`ve had trouble keeping my venison moist.., anyone smoked deer on a regular basis w/ good results? Look forward to hearing from my smoking brethren..,

    I have only cured & smoked venison aka  pastrami or similar to Canadian bacon. Without a cure my guess would be you should lard or marinate, smoke at higher temps. and pull at about 130 degrees and let rest like a roast in the home oven.

    Also you may get more replies if you post this in the game thread.

  3. Most people over cook venison.

    Happy smoken.

  4. All of the above is good advice. We eat a LOT of venison, and I usually don't smoke it unless it is wrapped in bacon.

    Thanks to all that replied.., I smoked it for 4 hrs @ about 250, and wrapped it with ALOT of butter, turned out pretty good. Used my brisket rub, then chopped it, used the a`ju and BBQ sauce mix and lightly sauced it. REALLY tender. Made awesome sandwiches! Thanks again for the advice!
