This is where I usually hunt. Drive in as far as possible then take the deer trails...
my favorite rifle, a .30-30 :)
The mule buck from rifle season... (also got a white tail, not pictured)
I processed the meat into steaks, cubes, roasts and left the shoulders whole for smoking over the campfire.
I seasoned some of the cubed venison with Tatonka Dust... ( I love this stuff!)
rolled in flour and browned in bear lard...
sautéed onions, garlic and peppers in the drippings...
added 1 cup of bourbon and about 2 cups of beef stock to the pot.
seasoned with more Tatonka Dust, a pinch of marjoram, thyme, parsley and oregano.
Then into the drum at 275F..
Made bear lard biscuits and decided to sprinkle them with Tatonka Dust too...
simmered the venison until tender and let the biscuits hang out in the drum until they were cooked through.
added salt and pepper to taste to the venison.
The venison tasted a lot like beef tips, it was so tender. I liked the addition of the Tatonka Dust. Will make it again for sure!!
I've mentioned Tatonka Dust in the past. It's one of my favorites. I use it a lot with wild game, but it really goes well with many other things. I keep a shaker of the Dust by my stove and sprinkle it on many foods that I cook in the house. If you get the chance, contact Marty and Tanya at Owen's BBQ . They'll hook ya up with some, they're great people!! :)
Thanks for looking!
