    when a plan comes together. last wk i took 2 small(3lbs ) venison roasts and injected them with a sugar cure from curlyes sausage kitchen.let them sit for 7 days and threw them in the smoke vault today for the best dried beef(venison)i've had in years[​IMG] the vault worked wonders today /starting out at 8 below and ending at10 above.i smoked them for 1 hr at 130deg went up to 150and added smoke for 2 hrs.went up to 190 and finished them to an internal temp of 150. and yes once again my belly will hurt[​IMG]

    Wow! I had venison dried beef before and loved it. I thought the process of drying would be longer than what you explained. Did you slice it really really thin, like you would for SOS?

    What kind of wood did you use? And the sugar cure is all you used?

    Looks great Bill , did you soak them in brine or just the injection? I have always taken mine up to 160....might try the lower temp next time for a little more moisture. Just got a bag of Morton Sugar Cure and am wanting to try it out . Again nice looking job on thr roast!

    Ummmm.....that sure looks tasty. You inject them and then let them sit in the fridge for 7 days? I don't know if I could wait that long....LOL Do you put any kind of a rub on them, or do you just use the injection?

    Nice job [​IMG]

    Happy smokin
