I'm sure you know how lean venison is which can make it difficult to Q. It can benefit greatly from a brine and foiling in a pan after it's taken on some smoke. Bacon strips can also help keep it from drying out. I like to brine the roasts for 24 hours, double butterfly them open, lay bacon strips inside with a little bit of low or no-salt rub (plenty of salt from the brine and bacon), roll them up, tie with butcher twine, and smoke indirect at 250 degrees until barely done; it's very important to not overcook venison as it's not very forgiving in that regard. If I'm not feeling lazy, I like to make a glaze with low-salt soy sauce, beef stock that has NOT been de-fatted, and a touch of molasses to paint on towards the end. :mrgreen: IMO, venison tenderloins are best sliced 3/8" thick against the grain, dipped in a milk/egg-wash, breaded in flour with S&P, and pan-fried (cast iron skillet if you have one) in either butter or bacon fat (or both!)......damn I'm hungry for deer now!

I just butchered a fresh doe last night and have the tenerloins marinating in some low sodium teriaky, from there season with some S&P buttery fly them and toss them on the green egg until an internal temp of 130 to 135.

Just don't try and low and slow it, 300 as a minimum temp. Salt , pepper say a tbs of each in a shaker and sprinkle it on brush lightly with oil first. Cook to 130 to 140 internal no more

It sounded like you have more that 1 cut of venison. If that's the case you could corn some then smoke then you will have some good pastrami.

I always liked to marinate the whole loin in beer and your preferred marinade (dales seasoning or Italian dressing) and then wrap the loin with bacon and smoke around 275-300 till a internal temp of 130-135 and pull it off and let it rest for 30 min or so.
