Buddy at work got a really nice meat slicer as a gift. Was wondering has anyone ever smoked a shoulder or rear ham and made venison sandwich meat?

I have and it is ok but not like lunch meat really .
I took and cut all the muscle line so that i wasn't having a bunch of different grains to cut against so i would have a nice clean piece of meat and it worked good , i like doing them about 1/2 for good quick grilling stakes without the bone in.

I have had whole smoked deer hams and backstrap/tenderloins done in the past. It is good just a bit dry. Better as snacks with crackers than on a sandwich.

I made pastrami out of some of the larger muscles in the back legs last year. It came out really good tender (if sliced thin) and wasn't to dry. I posted on here with photos and directions if I remember right. Do a search and you should find it.

I still had the pics

Years ago I took a hind quarter to BBQ place and had him smoke it all night with his briskets. Carried it on mule deer hunt in Brewster Co. and like stx said it was good but a little dry, glad I took the sauce he gave me.

Liljon sent me this recipe for pastrami:

I finally got a few minutes so here ya go. 4lb deer roast as lean as you can get 1 cup kosher salt 1 cup white sugar 2tbsp mccormick pikeling spice 1/2 cup dark brown sugar 1/4 cup of honey bring that to a boil in 1 gallon of water and then chill it add 8 tsp of pink salt(instacure #2) mix and add the meat in a covered plastic tub with lid put a saucer or plate on top of the meat to keep it submerged for 72 hrs after that take it out rinse it of good or it will be real salty dry it with a paper towel...take 1 1/2 tbsp black peppercorns and 1 1/2tbsp coriander seeds in a pan and heat them on med shaking them till they smoke just a little then I grind them in a coffee grinder till still very coarse put as much as you can get on..then I smoke it on low heat for 5hrs then kick up the heat and cook till its about 150 let it rest for 30 minuets slice it thin I like mine cold and thin tradition is slice it up and then steam it for 15 or 20..this is a proven recipe and has worked out great as far as salami prossetto and any non cooked meats that's is a whole nother world just for a fun quick kit check out www.drybagsteak.com goodluck and let me know how it worked out. I went to a hf ranch to help a friend clean out the hogs and had a few guy's say this was the best piece of venison they had ever had

Agree with this, they do work ok for sliders also.

I have also cold smoked individual muscles from a ham for 4 hours then crank up the heat and more smoke so they cook faster to finish off which worked pretty well with out them being as dry. Sliced thin cross grain it works well for a sandwich. Tried this after getting an electric smoker with a cold smoker attachment.
