Venison Shoulder on the Fire





One of my favorite ways to cook a venison shoulder is over the campfire. This was a whitetail buck shoulder I saved from last rifle season.
Marinated it overnight in Allegro brisket seasoning (all I had on hand at the time)


Had to detach the leg portion so it would all fit into the bag, then into the cooler...



onto the tractor rim on the low heat side of the fire...



 I flipped and rotated the shoulder every so often, basted it with a kicked up beef stock and added a log to the fire when needed...





I watch for shrinkage and pull-back on the bone...



after about 6 hours, I added a skillet of onions, garlic and peppers over the fire...





also threw a marinated skirt steak on the fire...



didn't take long to char....



heated tortillas and called er good!



This was one of those serve yourself meals. Grab a hot tortilla, fill with meat, peppers, onions and toppings. Everyone has to fend for themselves. :)





I put both venison and skirt steak on mine...



a few of the peppers and onions, then some fresh pico...



It was pretty tasty... but I think everything tastes better over a fire.
I need to go camping just so I can make this again, :)


Thanks for lookin'!

Thank you Rolf, it's good to see ya! :)
The lake was nice, kind of cold but I was able to do a lot of campfire cooking.
Hope all is well with you. I think I missed seeing your last Outlaw Camp cook pictures. I will look for them.
Have a great weekend! :)

We do fend for yourself, but it never looks that good.
If my hubby ever starts hunting, your blog may become my new homepage!

We are all doing better now, thank you.
God bless.

that looks pretty good. I usually grind my shoulders into sausage or stix.

Let me know if you need any more venison recipes. I cook it indoors too, but forget about posting pics here!

Hope your weekend was nice. :)
