    Deer, bone in front shoulder. What do I do with this thing?

    Never made venison anything, no clue about the meat, I would assume it would all be pretty lean but I don't know. It has been in the freezer for a while and they asked me to throw it on tomorrow while doing some brisket.
    I found a recipe for venison biltong which looks amazing, but not sure if you can do that with shoulder.

    Jerod Broussard Is getting a callout because one of his pics was hunting, and I have seen him mention it a few times

    We've always deboned that part. It is easily removed since it is not connected to the body with any bone joint.

      How do you cook it?

      If it goes to steaks it gets grilled and maybe wrapped in bacon. 1:1 ratio of bbq sauce and Italian dressing used as a marinade.

    If you had more time I would debone and follow The pastrami recipe on AR. I have made it now 4-5 times and it gets devoured. Only difference is I only cook to 150 and hold according to the chart for cooking times with temperatures. Not sure I would steam either it comes out super moist and haven't had anything but compliments. I didn't steam it the last time, I think it comes out better.

      I would not have ever thought of that, he mentioned having a couple so maybe I will try that out. Guess I should find out if he likes pastrami...

      The Outdoorsman Venison Pastrami it is! The front shoulder was weird, not as much meat as it looks. He also gave me a 3 pound roast so I think this is a good method. It is in the brine now, my only real concern is that there are several smaller pieces that I think may get too salty.

        "not as much meat as it looks"

        I feel that way EVERY single time I debone a deer.

      I ran out of shoulders and hams and needed to use up some back straps (loin meat) I cut them into three pieces and just kept moving them around each day. I still brined/pickled for up to 2 weeks once it absorbs the salt I don't think it will take anymore because it's smaller. I then de-salted in fresh water found that about 4 hrs was long enough for the smaller pieces averaging about 0.75 lbs. , larger pieces I would de-salt longer.
