It’s #nationalcheeseburgerday and perfect grilling weather, let’s celebrate! My addiction to these burgers comes straight from deer camp. Some years ago I was bowhunting on the Milk River. After an especially long and frustrating day (big whitetails will do that to you) my buddy said, “It’s late, we’re tired and we’ve gotta shoot a buck tomorrow. I’m gonna throw some burgers on the grill tonight. We’ll eat fancier later on in the week.” After my third burger (no rolls, low carb, just the protein) I hollered out to my friend on the deck as he grilled some more, “To heck with fancy, we’re gonna eat deer burgers the rest of the week!” The simple, delicious and incredibly addictive “Montana Deer [...]

Perfect for a summer Friday or Saturday night: --Shoot deer in fall. Gut deer. Transport some meat to processor and have brats made. (These jalapeno cheese brats came from a  buck I shot in Montana, though a deer you shoot and gut anywhere will do.) --Simmer brats in 50/50 mixture of water and beer for 20 minutes. Do not boil brats, just a low, slow simmer, rolling brats occasionally. --As brats simmer, sip remainder of leftover over beer. Heat gas grill and chill at least one more beer. --After 20 minutes, remove brats from stove and drain water/beer mix. Reduce grill to medium-low. Add brats and grill, covered, for 6-8 minutes, until charred slightly. --Remove from grill, serve with mustard [...]

BIG DEER Recipe: Tapas Venison

Today’s guest post from our great friend Flatlander, deer hunter, land manager and venison chef extraordinaire. What a meal for the weekend! Hey Mike: It’s time to clean out the freezers again in preparation for the upcoming season and, hopefully, fresh meat. This is a fine way to use up what’s left of last season's deer. You normally associate venison with jerky, chili and maybe meatloaf, but how often have you  served it like some of the finer restaurants in America do? It’s easier than you think. Tapas bars have become a big deal in the last decade--small portions or appetizers if you will of varying tastes and unique recipes beyond the everyday. Why not get a little more sophisticated [...]

Just in time for the weekend we post this guest blog from our friend Matt “Flatlander” Cheever who is not only a top-notch hunter but also a master griller of game meat: Hey venison lovers, it is midway through the grilling season and the 2016 deer season is quickly approaching. You probably have some deer meat left in the freezer that you need to use up before you restock. Here’s how to grill a feast with it. Everyone thinks the magic cure for making game meat tender and tasty is a secret marinade or recipe, but nothing could be further from the truth. Field care and proper butchering and handling of the meat in the field are the #1 key. Just [...]
