Venison back strap is by far one of my favorite meats to grill. Although you certainly can't leave it on the grill long. Overcooking it just takes the pleasure out of eating it. But, people often comment on the gamey taste. No more!

First I start my smoker grill with a coal base of Oak smoking wood. I use a lot of Oak just as a base and then I set my choice wood on top of it. After the Oak wood is burned down, I put on the really good specialty wood. My personal mix of Apricot wood and Pecan cooking wood. I let it burn down because I don't want the flames to sear the venison.

The secret to take out the gamey taste is sprinkling sugar on the venison backstrap. Yes, sugar!  There you have it, take out the gamey!

It’s not legal for sale for the public. You need to know a deer hunter. Usually deer hunters like to continue to hunt but they don’t want to process all the deers. That’s how I get my deer meat from friends that are hunters. Good question, Tom

Can you buy deer meat in the grocery store?

Venison is one of my favorite meats to smoke. At the wood shop we grilled a lot of deer steaks over apricot wood and pecan wood. Another technique to take the gamey taste out of the deer meat if it bothers you is to add some sugar to your meat. It works great.

I’ve always wondered about this. Thanks for all your smoking wood help. Tom in Tennessee
