Hello Everyone
Yesterday I did an Elk roast I smoked it with hickory well I tried to but it did not get to smokey I used some of Down Yonder BBQ cracked pepper and garlic rub on the roast
I placed into the smoker that was at 225 and added a pan of damp hickory pellets they were left out on the porch not in the rain but close enough to soak up moisture so they where basically mush
I let the roast cook for 2 hours then I checked temp on the roast it said 130 so I wrapped the roast in foil and went into the house for 30 min came back out and the temp said 162 I removed the thermometer and checked in another part of the roast it read 152
I removed the roast and placed into a cooler to rest I let it rest for 1 1/2 hours then sliced and ate it was Awesome

That looks great! I've got pleny of venison in the freezer, but i've been too skeerd to smoke it. I figured it would be so lean it would turn out dry. Yours doesn't look dry at all, and no brine or injection?
