Grilled Venison Recipes

You don't have to be a hunter to enjoy these grilled venison recipes. Venison can be found at many specialty meat shops, and can even be ordered through the internet.

Venison is a lean meat, making it a great choice for health conscious eaters. The low fat content requires special care when grilling, or the meat can become chewy and unappetizing.

Tender Cuts of Venison

Although wild venison can often be tough and dry, especially if it's from an old buck, certain cuts of deer meat are very tender and are perfect for grilling. When grilling one of these cuts, you just can't go wrong.

Venison Loin, or Backstrap

The backstrap, or loin is one of these tender cuts. Taken from along the outside of the backbone of the deer, these strips of meat are similar in quality to the meat found in beef ribeye steaks. The venison backstrap can be sliced into small steaks or grilled whole.

One of my favorite methods of grilling the loin is to butterfly it and stuff it with various fillings. Then it's wrapped back up and tied securely before hitting the grill.

The Tenderloin

The tenderloins come from the underside of the backbone, and are the most tender piece of venison you'll find. These are best when grilled quickly and seasoned lightly.
