Spiedies
1 cup white vinegar or wine vinegar
2 cups olive oil
8 sm. cloves of fresh garlic, minced
2 tablespoons oregano
2 teaspoon onion flakes
1 teaspoon salt (up to 3 for taste)
1 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup brown sugar
5 lbs venison (cubed into 1-1/2" +/- chunks)

Mix all ingredients except meat into a marinade. Add venison (or chicken, or lamb (with lamb: exchange the lemon juice for 2 tablespoons of dry or fresh mint leaves)) and allow to sit overnight in the refrigerator. Place 6 to 8 pieces on a skewers and grill. Figure two skewers/person. Serve on Italian bread and add Tobassco or Frank's Hot Sauce as desired.

This is like the National Food of Binghamton. Everyone has their own variation on the basics. I add 6 or 7 crushed bay leaves or a tsp. of Old Bay seasoning for variety.

WA’s Wild Boar BBQ Sandwiches

Start with a chunk of boar neck that will fit into the crock pot or Dutch oven.

Slice 3 big onions, put two on the bottom of the pot.
Chop 4 stalks of celery & place into bottom of the pot.

Salt and pepper the bottom of the pot, heavily.
Place neck roast into pot.

Pour on 2 cups of your favorite salsa.
Place remaining onion on roast.
Salt ”“ pepper - onion powder to taste.

Squirt on 1/2 cup catsup and 1/2 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce.
Pour 1 can of regular Coca Cola into the bottom of pot.

Cook on high for 2-3 hours, then 12 hours on low heat in crock pot - or regulate the same with your Dutch oven.

Pull out bones, chop meat with a spoon to make it consistent. Use a slotted spoon to strain mean onto big sourdough buns.

(I got this from my mother, who got it from my grandmother. I don't know how long it has been in the family.)

Grandma's Spiedies

5 lb. meat(venison, lamb, pork, veal, or any other meat)
1/3 cup oil
1/2 cup vinegar
2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. celery salt
1 tsp. garlic salt
1 tsp. basil
1 tbsp. chopped parsley
1 tbsp CRUSHED rosemary(if you can't find crushed, you can grind it in a coffee grinder)

If the ingredients soak into the meat too quickly you can mix up another batch of marinade & add it to the meat. (you don't want it to be too dry)

Cut meat into cubes, trimming off fat.
Coat with cooking oil, mixing very well.
Add remaining ingredients & mix well.
Marinate in refrigerator for at least three days in a tightly covered container, mixing well each day.
Cook on a grill & enjoy!
(Be careful not to over cook. Venison dries out & gets tough very quickly)

Venison Roast
(It works for beef, too.)

A roast that will fit in your crockpot or dutch oven.
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup white wine
1/4 cup ketchup

Mix the liquids and pour over the roast. Inject if desired.
I like onion and garlic, some don't.

Cook on high for one hour, switch to low and cook for about six hours, depending on roast size. I check every hour after five for doneness.

Venison Back Strap

Take a piece of back strap and remove all the silver skin. Peel and cut 3 or 4 cloves of garlic into slivers. Using a fillet knife poke the meat and insert a sliver of garlic into the cut. I generally put one sliver every inch or so. Sprinkle the outside with oregano then wrap the entire roast with bacon. Dice up some apples and onions, mix them together and line the bottom of a baking dish. Place the meat on the apples and onions. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for about one hour at 350ºF. We use a meat thermometer and take it out when the thermometer says 140, let it set for 10 minutes out of the pan and "tented" in a piece of aluminum foil.

Slice and cover with apple onion mixture and serve. This is sooooo yummy!

Reheat trick, we reheat the apple onion mixture only! Slice the meat thin and mix into the heated sauce, serve and enjoy!

Grilled Venison Chops

Ingredients: Venison chops cut 1 to 1 1/2 inches thick (bone in just like a T-bone beef steak)
Butter
Durkees Kansas City style steak seasoning
Hot fire or grill

Preparation: Coat both sides of chops with seasoning lightly or more depending on your taste, Durkees contains salt among the ingredients and let stand at room temp. While charcoal burns down or grill heats up. Also great grilled over hardwood fire.

When fire is ready place chops on and put a large pat of butter atop. fire should be medium hot and meat should be 4-6 inches away.

When butter has melted (smear with knife or BBQ brush) onto the meat turn over and place another pat of butter atop. when butter melts and juice just begins to run clear is when they are done, avoid overcooking, about 6-10 minutes per side depending on heat level.

Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes before serving with wild and brown rice. Stewed squash goes very well with this. Don't forget the dry red wine, Merlot preferred.

1 medium onion quartered
1 cup flour
1 cup veggie oil
2 stalks celery- cut up
2 carrotts, chopped
4 medium potatoes, cubed

Resist the urge to uncover until at least at the low end of the cooking time. When uncovered the meat should be falling apart, if not stir and cook till it does. This is excellent when served with
a heavy type garlic bread.

Venison Sausage

Per 1 lb. of meat:

(You can substitute any meat, but this was originally designed to use with venison)

1 Tbsp. Morton's Tender Quick (curing salt)
1/2 tsp. Mustard Seed
1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp. Coarse pepper
3/4 Tsp. Liquid Smoke
1/4 cup Water

Directions:

Mix thorough all the meat and ingredients in a large bowl. The meat will begin turning gray from the salt and liquid smoke, which is chemically cooking the meat. Don't despare. This makes a mild summer sausage. You can add to, or delete any spice listed above, to your taste. You can use different spices, with, or in substitution for, any of the spices listed above.

Use Plastic wrap to make the sausage, by rolling the meat into the size sausage you want. Hold the ends in both hands and spin the sausage to squeeze out air, and air pockets in the sausage. Put the sausages on a baking sheet, and put them in your refrigerator for a minimum of 24 hours, turning the sausages over every 12 hours, to make sure that the salt and liquid smoke reach all parts of the sausage .

Remove from the refrigerator any time after 24 hours. Take off the plastic wrap. Re wrap the sausages in foil, and put them back on the baking sheet. Bake 45 minutes at 300 degrees F. then turn the sausages over and bake them aother 45 minutes, to evenly cook the sausages through.

Remove the sausages from the oven and thow them in a sink, running cold water over them to cool them down quickly. Then remove the foil and disgard. Wash all the extra salt and fat that is crusted on the outside of the sausage. Set them aside on paper towels to dry. The sausage will have a nice solid texture and a red color to them, depending on what meat you use.

To store, re-wrap in plastic wrap and either freeze or refrigerate. I put the sausages that go into the freezer in a separate ziplock bag, to help prevent freezer burn.

The benefit of this recipe is that it can be expanded to handle as much sausage as you want, you don't have to have or use a sausage press, and you don't use pig intestines, which can be expensive, to make this sausage. You don't have to make all the sausage up at once. You can freeze the meats you want to make sausage out of, then thaw them out when you want to make the sausage, and keep the quantities small for use, and storage.

Pepper Jack Elk Tenderlion

Ingredients

Four elk tenderlions trimmed and butterfly cut
1 onion
8 strips of bacon
2 cups beef stock or 2 cups water and beef low salt soup mix
1 large garlic
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp season salt
1 oz Jack Daniels (for the sauce, not the cook!)
1 tsp olive oil
few toothpicks

Preparation

By the way elk prepped and cooked right is wonderful. My favorite is to wrap butterfly cut tenderloin in bacon and pat down both sides with cracked pepper. Prep the grills to about 700 degrees add a handful of hickory chips and set them on the grill for about 4 min/side.

Prior to this take one med. Onion julienne slice it and quickly brown in 1 teaspoon olive oil. Add 2 cup rich beef stock, 1 tsp crushed garlic, 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce. Reduce to 1/2. Here's the kicker. Add 1 oz Jack Daniels (to the sauce, not the cook...at this time) a 1/2 tsp season salt stir and when steaks are desired doneness (I go warm pink) plate and top with sauce.

Many meat cooks have not realized (in my humble opinion) that meat continues to cook after removing from the heat. I pull steaks before desired doneness and wrap for about 5 minutes in alum foil. This draws the juice back into the meat and finishes the cooking.
