    Smoked backstrap

    So I had some friends over and broke out the backstrap today, smoked it over hickory coals for 3 hours till medium rare!!! Fried some onions and jalapeños with some cheese, fried corn and a home made apple cobbler(with apples from the back yard)

    We wrapped one in bacon and smoked it about a month ago. Mighty fine. I'm going to save most of my backstraps this way now. Cut it half and freeze it

    I keep most of my meat in large muscle groups I don’t cut steaks when I’m butchering, if I want steaks I’ll pull a top side out and make steaks

    I guess I need to get a real smoker one of these days. All I have is my little electric totem smoker. I’m guessing it wouldn’t ever get hot enough to do something like this? It makes good venison jerky. I had to leave it in for 24 hours the other day just to get it done. I’ve smoked fish in it on summer days which takes about eight hours. But I’m guessing actually smoking meat like this get an acceptable internal temperature on the traps it would never get hot enough.

    I’m wondering if I could just smoke it for a couple hours to get the smoky flavor in it and then finish it off in the oven to get it hot enough???

    Use the totem to apply smoke for 1-2 hours then transfer the meat to the oven to finish.

    Used the pit boss to smoke some little bacon wrapped venison tenderloins this evening. Good thing I took a sample bite because Wife and Son devoured the rest
