Venison hind quarter on the grill!

While it is snowing. March 25th. I am the last person to complain about the weather. Seriously. I really don’t care. But this constant snow and below 20* temps is destroying our electric bill and putting a cramp in my grilling time.

That awesome food friend, Linda at BWB in Gaithersburg MD, hooked me up with a small hind quarter of venison. Actually her friend did. It was frozen. So I thawed it out and injected it with worcestershire sauce. Covered it in coarsely ground black pepper, garlic powder, and coriander (hello pastrami seasoning) and let it sit in a sealed Tupperware dish in the fridge for 3 days.

Tonight, after dinner I figured if I threw it on the charcoal grill and kept it in an iron skillet off to one side it’d take a few hours to cook. Well, I am out of charcoal apparently. So I used apple wood chunks and cowboy chunks (pre-cinders). After searing over an open flame I did just that, put in a skillet. Kept grill temps around 250* to 300* with a couple spikes here and there. It only took about 2 hours to get the bone area to 125*. Outer areas where a little too hot, 140*. Took it out and wrapped in foil about 4 times. Then wrapped in towels a few times. And then threw it in the oven (OVEN OFF) and it’ll sit in there for a few hours before break it down it servings to take to work in sealed bags for everyone. I’ll update this post with pics of the product tore apart later, if I remember and don’t eat it all first.

I ate a little piece off the grill. It was pretty good. I didn’t eat a piece of the grill! The deer dang it!

First blog with the phone I stead of desktop. I should be able post more now. But you’ll get nothing but phone pics this way. Let me know what you think and any pointers are surely welcomed. Cook on people!

***EDIT!!!***
Okay, so just ate some. Not as smokey as I’d like. But you can’t ask for much with only a 2 hr cook time. But with that cook time of 2 hrs, the center was very medium rare and made for some great f’ing sandwiches!
