    Hickory Smoked mule deer roast!! OH MY!

    I had about a 3-4 pound roast that I sprinkled with blackened seasoning. I put it on my smoker that had nice glowing gray color charcoals. Before I put the meat on , I filled the water container about 1/4 of what I normally use when I smoke a turkey on it. Before I put the meat on I had soaked Hickory chips in water for about an hour. I loaded up the coals with the chips, put the meat on the grill, and closed the hood. It cooked just a bit faster than I wanted to and I took the roast off after about 1.5 hours. It should have been pulled off just a bit sooner as I like it just a bit more pink in the middle. AS it was though, it was tender and moist and had a great flavor imparted by the smoked Hickory wood! It was incredible. I had a baked potatoe and some creamed corn and it was a meal fit for a king.

    Dang, that looks awesome!!! I never used to save roasts, just turn them into jerky or grinding meat. I've started to save a few now, and they can be some dang good eating...

    I'll add a picture of one I just did recently, too....I injected it with Au Jus, seasoned, seared it on a hot grill for a few mintues and finished it in the oven until med rare. It ate up real well!!

    This is mule deer as well....

    It did taste fantastic. I ruined an elk roast smoking it a few years ago. I put too much water in the container in the smoker and cooked it at too low of heat. It got so that it literally fell apart and the meat was mushy. It tasted great, but I could just not get by the texture. A little higher heat this time and it was perfect. I had been afraid to try another one and waste it, but I believe I have it all figured out. I will most definitely do more. Man it was tender, and this buck was rutting hard.
