Default Some Venison Shoulders

I've been using up the whitetail meat in the freezer before rifle season gets here.

Usually take the shoulders camping and just slow cook them over the fire..
http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=194855
but didn't get to it this summer.

For me, shoulders are a pain to clean, and I don't like to use them in sausage. There is so much silver skin. I like to cook the thing whole and let everyone cut the meat off the bone after it's cooked. Seems to work out better for me.

I removed the fore arm or legs from the shoulders, marinated in Allegro overnight.





onto the smoker with just a kiss of mesquite..





smoked for 2 hrs...



then into the beer/beef stock liquid, meat side down



added onions, jalapenos, garlic, beer and some Special Sh*t...





covered and let it go til tender.. (about 7 hrs)





I had to give it a taste test or two... :)



the meat was moist and tender...



first night I slapped some on a hot tortilla with onions and peppers..





it was pretty tasty! I saved all of the drippings.



The next morning, I had venison grillades and grits on my mind. Couldn't exactly make grillades so I just went with what I had.

Carved some of the venison off the bone..



heated some of the saved stock, added the venison, morel mushrooms, onions, a few of the jalapenos from the venison cook...thickened with a cornstarch slurry..



made some cheesy grits...



breakfast..venison (almost) grillades and grits...





It turned out pretty good. I like braising goat legs this way too. The meat is so lean but comes out nice. :)


Thanks for looking!

Oh yeah! That looks great! Was that Venison style Pepper stout beef? Did you cook it til it pulled? Looked like you sliced it. We deal with a lot of venison here. Our hunting season about to start. Well Gun season. Hopefully I can share a venison cook with you guys soon!

Thanks Blazin! It was sort of pepper stout beef but with more of a jalapeno flavor. I don't like bell peppers in the pot when braising for some reason.
I sliced big pieces off of the leg, then cut off any silver skin. Made the meat nice and tender.
Hope you have great luck hunting!!

edited to add...
I forgot to mention, in the pic of the leg being sliced. This was the next morning, the leg was cold out of the fridge. I heated the slivers of meat in the stock.

Wow, thanks Cowgirl. I have an antelope neck in the freezer I thought I would braise till the meat fell off. Hadn't though about smoking it first. Another inspiration, so glad to see your posts.

Very nice cowgirl! Wish i had seen this last week, first deer of the year last weekend and I ground the shoulders, i would have saved one to try that. I have 2 tags left so hopefully there will be more venison!
