I got a deer last weekend and just last night I did the backstraps. I don't think you can find a better piece of meat, elk aside. I marinated mine in EVOO, red wine vinegar, garlic, rosemary, basil, salt and pepper for a day and a half. I then sliced them thick added a little Simply Marvelous Season all on top, wrapped in bacon and grilled on the KJ hot and fast to med-rare. Holy moly was that the tastiest, juiciest, some succulent bambi I have ever eaten.
