I got a super smokin' deal yesterday on a used RecTec Pellet Smoker here in the Mound. My MB Electric will be quiet for a bit...

What are some comments on smoking deer backstrap? I have some sliced steaks and some mini-roasts I'll call them. Does it lend itself to a low and slow smoke or better hot and fast on a grill cook?

(General comment, I cooked some of this year's buck, smoked sausage I got from Clear Fork in Graham. I think it is some of the better deer sausage I've tasted. Much better than Cinnamon Creek.)

Thanks
Charlie

Cold smoke, don't let the hear get above 200°, don't let the IT of the back strap get past 135°. I live to smoke it until it gets around 120-125 then finish over the coals until it gets to temp.

No matter how you cook it, nothing higher than a IT of 135°.

Just like he says. Smoke low and slow. Pull it off at 120 and crank the temp up. Put it back on and sear it. Or finish on coals for a better seat.
