As a kid, I can remember visiting extended family, who would kill, process and cook their own deer. The meat would be slow-roasted in a wood-burning oven over a period of two days and basted continuously with layers of pork fat plus herbs, spices and wine. The result was a blackened roast that was incredibly tender, juicy and tasty.

Since then I’ve had only lousy deer meat in restaurants, hotels or with friends that is tough and gamey that made me walk away wishing I’d had a burger or bologna sandwich! I’ve never had good deer since.

Does anyone have other secrets to a good deer roast (not sausage)?

Paddlegoon, you have got the right idea already. Do exactly what you are talking about with a barbecue pit. Slow cooking is the key. Use whatever seasonings and marinades that you like and keep it moist. I usually keep wrapped in foil. About 8 to 10 hours should be sufficient at a lower temp. I like it at about 225. Alot depends on how the meat was handled and cleaned when it was processed.

Exactly !!! The quicker you get the blood out the better. I also keep mine on ice for at least 3 to 4 days while draining cooler constantly. This really helps take the game taste out.

Go get you some Fiesta Brand
"Wild Game Rub with jalepeno flavor"
Used to get from Academy, but not
shopping there anymore. And it's sad
they took all the guns out of my normal
mailer. It's not hot at all.
It has msg in it though.
Stuff is potent when seasoning,
but it's the best marinade I have found for
deer roasts. Just powder well, and let sit for
day or two.
Now, I am a firm believer in the
axis deer and you will find that flvor to be
excellent if proper groceries were available
for it. I have eaten swamp deer from LA
that could never compare to Llano deer, too!

We always soak the meat in salt water to get the blood out.
