“Tender chunks of venison are marinated twice, and wrapped in thick bacon before being grilled until crispy on the outside. A venison version of Filet Mignon. This is a heavenly use of the best part of a deer. For the BBQ sauce, I prefer hickory flavored.”

Original recipe yields 4 servings

Directions

  1. Place chunks of venison into a shallow baking dish, and pour enough apple cider in to cover them. Cover, and refrigerate for 2 hours. Remove, and pat dry. Discard apple cider, and return venison to the dish. Pour barbeque sauce over the chunks, cover, and refrigerate for 2 to 3 more hours.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat. Charcoal is best, but if you must, use gas. Remove meat from the refrigerator, and let stand for 30 minutes, or until no longer chilled. Wrap each chunk of venison in a slice of bacon, and secure with toothpicks.
  3. Brush the grill grate with olive oil when hot, and place venison pieces on the grill so they are not touching. The bacon will kick up some flames, so be ready. Grill, turning occasionally, until the bacon becomes slightly burnt, 15 to 20 minutes. The slower, the better. Dig in, and prepare to want more!

I really don't like deer. I had never even tried it until I married an avid hunter who likes to bring his game home. No matter how much I soaked the meat in salt water, buttermilk, etc etc I could never get over the gamey taste... until this recipe! It is FANTASTIC! I soaked the meat overnight in cider and in BBQ sauce all day. Half of it I used turkey bacon and the rest regular. (regular was better, turkey wasn't bad) It was delicious!! Be very careful not to overcook it or it will be tough and not as tasty. Thick sliced bacon isn't necessary. FINALLY, I have a way of making venison that we can both enjoy. Thank you! ***What's better then grilled venison wrapped in bacon? Adding a slice of onion and wrapping it up with the meat. Yum.

I'm giving it 5 stars because my ex-hubby said it was awesome! I tried it but I made a HUGE mistake....for some reason I had apple cider VINEGAR in my head when I made the venison! For future reference...do NOT make this using apple cider vinegar...not good :( I will definately try this again using apple cider!!
