If you have a smoker try this with your roasts its fantastic

[/b]
5 lb. Venison round roast, or two 2.5 lb. roasts
2.5 liters water
5 Tbs. pickling salt
2 Tbs. cure #1
录 cup crushed garlic
2 Tbs. brown sugar

Spice coating[/b]
2 Tbs. black Pepper, cracked
3 Tbs. Coriander, cracked
1 Tbs. crushed Garlic


Dissolve salt, sugar and cure in the water, add the crushed garlic . Pump(inject) the meat with some ofthe brine. Put roasts in the remaining brine. Place in the fridge for 4 days.
Remove meat from brine pat dry then rub the surface with the crushed garlic. Crush the pepper and coriander with a mortar and pestle. Press into the cracked pepper / coriander mix until coated on all sides.
Place in smoker on low. Water pan should be used. Smoke for about 3 hrs on low smoker temp 150F no smoke, then turn up to med, with heavy smoke, to 180-200 F, smoke until an internal temp of 160 F is achieved. Cool and slice thin, or freeze.

We can deer all the time. Chunk it up in about 1" squares and fill the quart jar about 3/4 way full. Add 1 t-spoon of salt and can it at 15 to 18 pressure for 45 minutes. No need to add anything else to it.

When done, empty into a cast iron skillet and add a pack of brown gravy mix.

(Not as fancy as Big Guy, but still mmm mmm good!)

I've canned lots of venison. I usually debone all the meat and trim off all the silver skin and tendons and cut into 1 inch cubes. I pack it into pint or quart jars leaving about 1 inch head space and add a table spoon of canning salt to quarts , 1/2 tablespoon for pints. I don't add any liquid. Put the lids on and pressure cook in the canner at 12 to 15 pounds for 90 minutes for quarts and 75 minutes for pints. When I use my pressure canner, I always let it come to a heavy steam before I trip the pressure valve and start timming when it reaches the desired pressure. Heres a link that will help. http://www.gopresto.com/recipes/cann...PSESSID=6d4888

WVCritterGitter uses the same method I have used for years with great success exactly. About the only difference is that I add a SMALL amt. of water to the meat in the jars and also stick a clove of Garlic on top before I seal them and put them in the pressure cooker.
Once people get a taste of it, you'll have to beat them off with a stick...

I plan to start canning and smoking meat and veggies when I get on my new place in SC. I know that SC bans any inprted meat with bones or brain and spinal cord. One of the books I bought on field dressing and butchering recomends deboning venison because of WD. What I want to know is this, do any of you debone without cutting any of the bones or joints.

Leehop,I process my deer with minimal bone cutting,generally just splitting the pelvis,and cutting the rear hind quarters away.Much of the CWD is thought to be transfered by cutting into the spinal collumn,and handling the brain per se.I don't worry about it,they have found it in some areas here in northern Illinois.There is a video out made by a guy named Bill Helsgrave,he is a butcher from Wisconsin in an area with a large number of deer thought to have CWD,he shows how to fillet deer and not cut any bone.It is an interesting video that can be purchased at Gander mountain .
