Smoked Venison Deer Recipes
Deer or venison is a healthy alternative to beef because it is a red-meat with a similar flavor profile but is a much more lean type of meat. In fact, venison meat typically has 5-6 times less fat than smoked beef recipes. The most popular meats to smoke are typically high in fat content because the low and slow cooking method melts the fat during the smoking process which bastes the meat with moisture and flavor. That is why we always recommend putting the fat side up when putting any meat on the smoker and there is no need to flip it half way throughout the cooking process. The light fat content in venison meat (deer and elk) does create some challenges when smoking this delicacy, but that doesn't mean it can't be overcome with the right smoking tips. Just make sure you follow the recipe directions or your venison deer and elk recipes will tend to dry out during the low and slow smoking process.
