Always done all my own processing and usually just take the straps in the traditional way. Anyone ever done the venison chop thing? Advantage to doing so other than the visual appearance?

I don't think there is any advantage. The disadvantage is that you might miss the tenderloin all together. I like to have my tenderloin separately.

I like not having the bone. You don't need a saw and easier packing.

Chops are a pain, stick with pulling it whole.

I did the chops thing for a while and still do on occasion but not tat often anymore. One or two deer a year I will pull the backstrap to where the ribs start and make bone in ribeye like cuts out of the rest of the strap.

Something about that meat next to the bone is good.

That is one thing about processing your own deer, you can make the cuts how you want them.

Its a whole lot easier to do chops if you have a saw-zaw with a bone blade.

If your just frying it I say take them out boneless, if your grilling them I like to do chops because once you get good grill marks on one side you can let the bone side take the heat until its done to your liking.

I haven't paid to have one processed yet. I think I'm going to give the chops a try. Not sure really how to do it other than cut the rib cage halfway horizontal. I think I can figure it out though.

I really enjoy bone in NY's and rib eyes (beef) but it makes no difference or sense with venison, plus I would never, ever leave a bone in and freeze.
