Has anyone ever cooked a whole dear on a spit over a fire before? how did it turn out? any suggestions? Thinking about doing this towards the end of the season. Any input is appreciated

my uncle has when i was younger we would go over for cook outs and he would put bacon strips on the hind quarters and wrap them in foil to keep the moisture in and the bacon would give a little more flavor.

this gives me an idea,

there's a site that showes how to roast a pig using cinderblocks. 3 guys from Miami pig roast was the sight. I've tried it with a 60lb pig and it came out great. it probably wouldnt be a bad idea to try it with a deer.

Take a hind quarter and soak it it a 5 gallon bucket of a brining solution. It will all moisture and flavor to the meat and buy the time its done roasting it will be tender and juicy. You can google brining solution but my recipe is as follows:

1 gal. veg. broth (not the low sodium kind)
2 cups kosher salt
1 cup dark brown sugar
20 peppercorns
2 sprigs rosemary
2 springs sage
10 juniper berries (if like juniper)
5 cloves of garlic

put all of the above into a large pan and bring to a boil just long enought to disolve the salt and sugar. Cool to room temp and pour into a 5 gallon bucket. Next add 1 bag of ice and one gallon of cold water. Soak the hind quarter for 24 hours. Make sure it's submerged. Weight it down with a foil coverved brick if you need to. After 24 hours, take the meat out of the bucket and wash it off. Pat dry and roast it. Smoking it is also really good.

Wrap whole rear quarter in aluminum foil with onions spread all over. Freeze. Remove from freezer and grill on low heat turning fairly frequently for about 6-8 hours, smoke doesn't hurt either. Freezing seems to help keep it moist, I have tried with fresh quarters and frozen. frozen seems to be better. If you like you can also add potatoes and carrots about 1-1/2-2 hours before it is done. Simple and easy to do.

Dredly.. I'll be at a game feast this weekend that we cook a whole deer.. it will be the third one I've done this year. They are awesome!!! Lemme dig up a pic.. We've done little does on a big barbq and the 200+ pound buck in the pic was done over a pit fire, walls of cinderblock, and slathered with mops from a 5 gallon buckets of bbq sauce.. .I'll post a couple pics if I can find em from last year's feast... it's much the same as cooking a whole pig on the 'que.. just split the pelvis, lay em on the grates, cook em slow with a small fire if it's a dink, or with a larger fire for the big boy.. lemme tell ya.. it is gooooooood stuff!!!!! :thumb: We usually oil it up on the outside, season to taste, and start cooking the night before for a biggun, or crack of dawn for an evening serving of small doe.... :wink: :thumb:
