Default Venison Grillades and Cheesy Grits (Thank you Armor)

Brethren Armor kindly sent some products from his family's mill, the Amherst Mill in Amherst Va. Thank you so much Armor!!
I love grits but have never tried them so fresh.

I cut some back strap and a small hunk of venison roast into medallions, pounded then seasoned them with Wickedcajun's Pookie G DaYum rub.
Love this rub, thanks G!

dusted with flour and into some hot bacon dripping/oil to brown..

removed the venison and sautéed the onion, peppers, garlic and celery..

cooked the flour...

then tomatoes, beef stock and seasonings...

into the BPS drum with a bit of hickory....

made the cheesy grits while the venison simmered..

gave the venison a stir every so often.
let the venison catch some smoke and simmer for about 4 hours...

the venison turned out nice and tender...

Venison grillades on cheesy grits..

I really loved this stuff. The grits from Armor's family mill were out of this world good!
The venison had a slight kick from the Pookie G rub... it was perfect!

I've been using last season's stash of venison. Hope to replenish it in a couple of weeks.

Thanks for looking!

Looks great as always Jeanie!

This Yankee is developing a taste for grits after spending some time in the NC & VA area. Unfortunately the only grits I find up here in tundra are (gasp) instant.

First cook I've seen you do in a while that didn't involve a tractor rim, although it looks like you could have easily done it there too.

Looks delicious, just added another pound, thanks alot.

That looks so good. I think I could almost do in that whole pot by myself. Well, I would try anyway.
