Venison Grillades and Grits on the Drum




Deer season is coming to an end and I am lucky enough to have venison in the freezer again this year!  Very happy about that. :)

I'm also thrilled to have received fresh grits from cooking friend Mike's family mill.  Amherst Milling Company in Amherst Va. Thank you again Mike... These grits are amazing!



I sliced up a bit of venison backstrap and some pieces of a small roast...



Seasoned the meat with PookieG Dayum dry rub.... has a nice little kick!



dusted with flour and gave them a quick browning in bacon drippings..





removed the venison and sauteed green onions, garlic and peppers in the drippings...




added flour and seasonings to make a roux...



also tomatoes and stock...





returned the venison to the pot and placed it into the drum to catch some smoke and simmer til tender.





made cheesy grits by adding cream and shredded american cheese to the mix...



the tender venison grillades...





they were SO tender...



the venison grillades with warm cheesy grits...



One of my favorite comfort meals!




Hope everyone had a successful season. :)

Stuffed Turkey Breast on the Grill



Just in time for Thanksgiving! If you don't feel like cooking a whole turkey, boneless breasts are a nice alternative.
The kind folks at Char-Broil requested a camp style turkey breast recipe so I opted to use the little table top Grill to Go for the job. It worked great!
You could use a grill at home with indirect heat.




I wanted a skin-on boneless breast so I de-boned the meat myself...it's a fairly simple process.

I cut the skin down the center...leaving it attached to the meat...



then filet the meat from each side of the breast, using a sharp knife..



I pound and stuff the turkey breast.... then tie to secure...











If you get the time, please check out my post on the Char-Broil site.  The full recipe for the sage stuffing is there too.  Thanks!

It's a handy way to have grilled turkey when you don't want to cook a big bird.

Hope everyone has a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
