DIRECTIONS

  • Trim any skin or fat from meat; cut slits at intervals in surface of roast and fill with garlic and push in some of the chopped bacon; brush meat generously with oil and sprinkle heavily with pepper.
  • Pour 1/2 cup wine into water pan of smoker and fill with water; put in place over hot fire.
  • Place meat on rack in smoker; cover with lid and smoke 5 hours, feeding with a few charcoal briquets at a time to maintain cooking temperature; baste with remaining oil evry hour, working quickly so as not to disperse heat in smoker.
  • Test internal temperature, it should be at 130-135 degrees.
  • Place meat in a large Dutch oven, add remaining 1/2 cup wine and simmer 45 minutes longer, or until internal temperature reaches 165-170 degrees.
  • Serve hot with gravy or refrigerate and serve cold.
  • Venison gravy: cut bacon in small pieces and saute to render fat; stir in flour, add pan juices and broth gradually, stirring until smooth and thickened; taste and add salt and pepper if needed.
