    8 lbs. of tenderized venison, fried in butter (margerine) and onions, rice, english peas, "Lighter than Air" rolls (recipe from this board).......Heck, I can't remember it all. The butter-fried deer steak is always a hit for our gathering (12 folks this time).

    Randall, can you help me understand after you pan fry do you add the veggies in a sauce or just put in to cook with the pan fried meat.....It looks really good.

    Okay the rundown of what was cooked for today:

    Guinea Gumbo
    Roasted goose
    Smoked Barbeque
    Homemade wheat bread
    spiced apples and refrigerator pickles (homemade)

    I'm not braggin', but there's some elderly folks in my family that don't do the "wild game" thing....if you know what I mean. But, I also had 18 quail smothered in gravy (that is also the bomb), and the deer went really quick. But, the added bonus to cooking these is the onion chips. I take them out every time I unload the skillet for the next load, and keep piling them up. My paw-in-law just came over to get him a big bowl of those onion chips to munch on. The key is to not cook it too quickly. If cooked right, you can cut it with a plastic fork. I had two electric skillets going for 3 hours cooking this, and I don't know how many times I loaded and unloaded them, but it was a steady job keeping the "assembly line" going.......LOL. Let me know if I need to explain further.

    _Randall_,

    I have never "brined" a turkey. I wash the turkey, wrap in perforated aluminum foil, usually baste......then place in the smoker.

    Smoking time generally works out to 1/2 hour per pound of turkey. [​IMG]
