  1. We eat a lot of venison in our house and I am always looking for new ways to serve it. Unfortunately, this isn't exactly what I was hoping for. BBQ led me to believe it would be a bit tangy, but I didn't feel this had much of a BBQ taste. The onions overpowered the venison. I even added only one onion, and they were still too overpowering, and we even like onions :) I could see where this recipe would be really good with a really "gamey" piece of meat as the onions would disguise the game flavor. We did enjoy it, hence the 4 stars, but it wasn't quite what we were looking for. I served this with Parmesan-mustard Mashed Potatoes Recipe #49073 and they seemed to be a nice mix in flavors. Thanks a bunch! :)
  2. We did this recipe with 4 lbs Moose and slow cooked high for 4 hours - TENDER! TASTY! MMMMMMMMM Only wandering what the amount of measurement was for the worcestershire sauce??? I used 1/4 tsp ? I omitted steps 2,10,11,12 and just served au jus!
  3. I, like another reviewer, didn't really find it to be BBQ, HOWEVER, the broth concoction works fantastic. I used 4 deer steaks in the slow cooker. After a couple of hours I tasted the meet and all I could taste as first was onion and I was oh no, hubby doesn't like onions. I then added another cup of beef brother and hoped for the best. After six hours now, a retaste and no onlon taste this time and meat is falling off the bone. I am going to let it for another couple. Now for the bbq sauce part. I took some of the broth and added, this didn't work for me so I added Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce and that took up a whole new level, it was awesome. Hubby hates ketchup. So I took my new concoction and added it back into the crock pot. I think I will just serve this with the store bought But seriously, the broth is fantastic!!!!!
  4. I have made this twice with Caribou and love it. I will not use any other BBQ sauce again. Outstanding!!!!


Zaar...Wow, what a place! I'm one of the old timers of Zaar. I can't count the number of wonderful dishes I cooked in the past few years since joining. Along the way I have had the pleasure of meeting several Zaar chefs. Talk about your fruits and nuts! lol. I have enjoyed meeting them all. Family: What's to say...I have had the same sweet husband forever (Good thing....I'd hate to have to break a new one in...=) and live close to a couple of grown children. (Maybe you've met Smoke Alarm Jr. ..her brown rolls are sooo good!) Therefore, my family gets together often to enjoy each other's company and cooking. My greatest joy is six "little to tallerthanme" kids running around calling me Grammy. They wear me out! lol For the past thirty years I have been a Special Education teacher for grades 9-12 and love it. Took some time off last year to recovery from surgery, chemotherapy and radiation for breast cancer. (Loved the radiation....I keep imagining that we are absolutely napalming the nasty cancer cells tohellandback to keep the little suckers from returning. =) My prognosis is good and now "I'm back in the saddle again". lol. Being a north country "gurl", I am happiest outside...walking, fishing, sitting in front of an outdoor fire or being on water (although in February it's a bit stiff....=0) When indoors I like to read, garden, knit, quilt and paint. During cold Maine weather I like to warm my feet on a very large ( 100 pounds of long legs and huge feet), sweet and furry golden retriever named Kerry (aka KTBRD: Kerry the big red . In the summer, the dawg and I round up the grandkids, hit the local dairy bar for a Mounds Sundae that is to die for!!!=0) . Then spend a lot of long and lazy summer days at camp . All in all...Boy, Life is good! =)
