   Use a top or bottom round roast for this method. The meat should be no more than 1 in. thick; if thicker than butterfly steak (see instructions below). If using Elk or Moose you may have to cut the roast in half, and freeze 1 half for another time.

1/2 cup chopped carrot
1/3 cup stuffing seasoned bread crumbs
2 teaspoons dried parsley
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
3 to 4 pounds boneless venison roast up to 1 inch thick
3 more slices of bacon cut in half

How to Butterfly meat:
Butterfly meat thicker than 1 inch by cutting roast/steak into 2 thinner pieces;
leave the meat connected at 1 edge.Open the butterflied meat up so it lies flat.

Fry 6 slices of bacon until crisp.Reserve 3 tablespoons of bacon grease.Crumble bacon. Set aside. Preheat oven to 325 deg. Cook onion, celery, carrot, in reserved bacon fat until tender. Remove from heat. Mix in crumbled bacon, bread crumbs, parsley flakes, salt and pepper. Spread vegetable mixture evenly on roast. Press vegetable mixture firmly into place. Roll up jelly roll style, rolling with the grain of meat. Starting about an inch from end of roast, tie  and wrap with kitchen string. Top roast with 3 halved slices of bacon. Roast to desired tenderness, about 24 - 30 minutes per pound.

Campfire cooked Rainbow trout

  You can do this in a charcoal grill or on the hot coals of a campfire!
1. Clean and rinse whole fish in cold water. Stuff with lemon wedges and onion slices.
2. Wrap fish in aluminum foil. Lay the foil-wrapped fish directly on hot charcoal or hot coals. Cook 7 minutes; turn the fish over and cook 6 or 7 minutes on the other side.
3. Carefully remove fish (still in foil) from the coals (use tongs or cooking mitt -don't want to get burnt). Let cool for a few minutes.
4. Open foil, season with salt and pepper to taste, and enjoy.
Cooking tip: To remove the bones entirely (so you don't need to eat around them) using forks, just pull the the fish's back meat in one direction and the belly meat in the other, and you can remove the bones in one piece.

Venison Chili Tip

A lot of people already have their favorite Venison chili recipe. Try this variation. After you brown your venison burger pour a can of Dr. Pepper(soda pop at room temp.) in skillet and simmer 15 - 20 minutes before adding to chili pot.

Here's another tip from my friend Whitney G.
What I do instead of cutting up green peppers and onions, I buy a large jar of ole El Paso medium heat picante sauce and use that as my base along with diced tomatoes, spices and beans.
Thanks Whitney!

Venison Cooking Tips

A lot of the gamey flavor in venison comes from the fat. Before cooking venison, trim off the fat.
When cooking venison add bacon, or pork fat and/or beef fat(also called suet) because venison is a lean meat(dry).

The following ingredients work well as marinades for venison:
Italian, Russian or French salad dressings.
Tomato sauce(add a little water), V8 juice, tomato soup, and tomato juice.
Citric Juices like orange, lemon and grapefruit juice(they have citric acid which helps tenderize meat)

Pickled Pike

Pickled Pike Recipe

1 lb. Northern Pike fillets, cut into 1" chunks
1 cup Kosher salt
1 quart distilled White Vinegar
3/4 cup sugar
1 in. piece raw horseradish, peeled & thinly sliced
4 slices fresh Ginger, about the size of a quarter
4 whole cloves
2 tsp. whole allspice berries
2 tsp. whole yellow mustard seeds
1/2 tsp. whole black peppercorns
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
3 Bay leaves
2 garlic cloves, peeled
1 carrot, thinly sliced

NOTE: Due to tapeworm concerns use Pike thats been frozen for at least 48 hrs. which kills these parasites.

1)Make a brine by combining the salt with a quart of water in a Mason jar. Add the Pike to the Brine and soak for 24 hrs. Discard brine and replace with a quart of vinegar and soak for another 24 hrs. Remove the fish and save 1 cup of the vinegar for use in the pickling solution.
2)Combine the saved cup of vinegar with 1/2 cup of water and the sugar in a nonreactive saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar, then remove from heat and allow to cool.
3)In a 1 quart Mason jar, add a quarter of the fish, then some spices and sliced carrots and onions; repeat with the remainder of the fish, spices and vegetables so that the ingredients are evenly layered. Pour the vinegar mixture into the jar. Cover tightly and refrigerate for at least 3 days to allow the flavors to develop.
If properly refrigerated will keep about a month.
