    Elk Stew or?

    I just got a, about, 5lb elk roast. I'm thinking about a Jalisco Style stew or a Elk Carne Guisada con Napalitos (stew with cactus pedals)
    Can I treat it like pork or beef? Thinking smoked for about 2 hours then finished in the stew.

    suggestions?

    Or!

    Personally & this just me, I wouldn’t smoke it for 2 hours. I’d be afraid of dryin it out. Elk is some pretty lean meat. For your stews I’d chunk it up & cook it, over a fire to get a wisp of smoke. I’ve got quite a bit of elk in my freezer & I cook it directly in a skillet or a quick sear& cook a steak. Be careful. I am not an expert since this is my first elk. Enjoy!

      +1 on FireMan post....It is really lean so drying out is a concern. I would think this would be a perfect time for Troutman 's QVQ method.

        ofelles I'd vote for, as you mention, the Jalisco 'birria' style braised method of cooking. As mentioned elk is way to lean to try and roast or open fire cook. To me it needs the help of either some additional fat or braising. Ship it over to me and I'll give it a go and let you know

          Troutman I problem with shipping it to you is will the currant state of deliveries even nextday could be next week! Plus you letting me know is just not the same as eating it.
          Ya I'm leaning to the Jalisco style and maybe throwing in some bacon also for the fat.. I had great success with some goat meat in one.

        Who knew you can pedal a cactus?
