Hunter's Den Cooking: smoked deer heart.

Our hunting camp did well this season - while keeping well fed during.
On the homecooked wood stove menu was:
+sausage w/egg & aged sharp cheese on toasted sourdough bread;
+breakfast casseroles with shredded taters;
+navy beans & leftover ham w/aged sharp cheese;
+Smoked heart from a buck I harvested earlier (shot placement matters).

(The smoked heart even earned Granddad's seal of approval. In all his 93 years, he's never had heart prepared this way before.)

Spices & sauces were from this month's Grill Masters Club kit, and included Elk Creek Bar-B-Q Co. Competition grade products, American Stockyard BBQ, Original Juan Bite me sauce, and Vaughn Wood Products hickory wood chips. All the above made for some spectacular flavoring to an otherwise preoccupied palate.




Follow-up thoughts:  

All the items in this month's box were a win! Two that really stood out from others of their category were the Stockyard BBQ Southern Blues sauce and the Elk Creek AP dry spice. For my personal taste, these two top the chart. Follow the links in the text above ^ to check out their products!
