Venison Backstrap & Bacon Wrapped Corn on the Campfire

Another tractor tire rim cook... When deciding what to take with me to cook while camping, I came across a whole whitetail backstrap in my freezer that I had forgotten about. It was a nice surprise. I DO love backstrap on the fire. :)

 I used the weed burner to get the fire going...





I started a skillet of fried potatoes with onions first, then added a pan of shrooms-n-garlic in butter...



Next came the bacon wrapped corn.  I drizzle the corn with oil, salt and black pepper before wrapping in bacon. The unwrapped corn was for my jalapeno corn cakes the next day.



I used a marinade on the backstrap that I hadn't tried before. It was for wild game and made by Allegro..  It was pretty tasty. :)




The backstrap went onto the fire next. I like to keep it pink in the center and not overcook.



Then I added a couple of ribeyes...






My mushrooms, bacon wrapped corn, ribeyes, backstrap and fried tatoes...


The corn and ribeyes..




The venison backstrap and mushrooms...



I tried some of the ribyeye ( at the top of the plate and on the fork)... and a few slices of venison...


It was pretty tasty! Not sure if it's right to serve two kinds of meat with more meat on the side (bacon) but no one else seemed to mind. :)

"Not sure if it's right to serve two kinds of meat with more meat on the side (bacon) but no one else seemed to mind. :)" I sure wouldn't mind, especially when the meat on the side is bacon. You always cook such awesome wheel rim meals. How many folks do you take on your camping trip - you always cook enough for a small army.

wow, you know how to put on a spread but you had me at hello on this meal. Backstrap was the first venison I ever ate and is still my favorite.
I bet you are never lonely...you could attract company from miles away w/ that one.

Thank you Beavercreek! I love venison over a fire. Thanks for stopping by too. :)

cowgirl said...

lol Thanks Stormdrane! :)
I appreciate you stopping by too!

cowgirl said...

Larry I feel that way about bacon too. lol
I knew for sure that there would be three of us at the lake but word gets out and others show up. Sometimes there were only two of us and at other times there were 12.

I think when camping, cell phones should be left at home. lol

Thanks Larry.. :)

cowgirl said...

Jeanie, the only sane person that would complain about that meal would have to be a vegetarian! Oh wait! let me take back that "sane". :)That looks awesome as always. A. Chris

Hi Jeanie. It all looks really good. Just a quick question. I am a purist when it comes to corn: butter, salt, maybe a little pepper. How is it with the bacon?

Off to cook a 1000 hot dogs for our Earth Day celebration at work. Nothing says Earth Day like burning all that propane, right? ;)

cowgirl said...

Linda thanks! If you lived closer I'd share with ya. :)
Hope you have a great weekend too!

cowgirl said...

lol Chris!! I wouldn't make a very good vegetarian. Thanks for the laugh. :)
Thanks for the kind comment and for stopping by, it's good to see ya. :)

cowgirl said...

Thank you Bill! I understand what you're saying. I can eat it straight out of the field. lol
You need to try a bacon wrapped one sometime. It keeps the kernals moist and adds a lot of flavor.

Sounds like you are going to have fun!! Wow..that's a buncha dogs.lol
Don't let the propane fumes get to ya. :)
