I found a venison tenderloin in my freezer today. Yeah, how did it stay there this long? Anyway we had some fresh corn on the cob so I soaked it for a couple hours and put the venison in a marinade of garlic powder, onion powder, and Dale's Seasoning.

Fired up the grill and I'll tell you what. Those tenderloins were so tender you could cut them with a fork. I am not exaggerating either. Just ask my daughters. That was goooood!

How long till November?

For the venison I mixed a marinade of garlic powder, onion powder, and Dale's Seasoning.

The corn I soaked in water to saturate the husks so they wouldn't ignite on the grill.

If you've never grilled corn this way, give it a try. Just submerge the ears in water for about an hour or so and put them on the grill. They'll be done in about 15-20 minutes. The husks will get very dark burned but the corn inside will be just fine. The moisture helps steam the corn and that's partly how it gets done so quick. The biggest problem is that they are hot for removing the husks.

I do that too, and I will even take it off and put it in a cooler to steam even more and then it isn't so hot to handle either..

I bowhunted for a few years. I found that it coincides with too many other options (pheasants, goose, grouse, fall fishing, crop harvest, fall tillage) for me and with kids and such takes too much of my time.

I enjoyed it but found it too difficult to get out regularly.

Wow thanks for the thread. Heading up to vermillion tomorrow and this thread made me go check the freezer. The menu for trip is the result.

Day 1. Pheasant Wraps (I pound the breasts flat and spread onion and chive cream cheese on them. Add some onions in some peppers in others and season to taste. Roll up wrap with bacon and grill them up) Corn on the cob grilled. Camp potatoes.

Day 2. Breakfast will include Venison Maple Sausage. For dinner we will fill the crockpot with Venison polish sausage ,saurkraut and graden fresh baby reds.

Day 3. Venison Back strap marinated and grilled with some grilled asparagus and mashed baby reds and garlic.

Day 4. The plan is to catch a fish or two.

I am sure none of this would have been thought of without this thread. smile Thank You!! smile

    • Awesome pictures!!!
    •   StephenRamon, Welcome to the forum. Which did you think was Great? Putting the screws in boots or ATV tires? 
    • I was fortunate to see a tanager, blue-winged warbler, and a couple of young cranes all in one morning  on a walk in a park this week.       
    •   You will get plenty of recipes for a brine or injection, or even an injectable brine which work good for turkey breasts.  A common injection are the store bought ones you see in sporting goods stores in the cooking section. All kinds of flavors from Cajun, to Honey Butter, Garlic & Herbs, etc. Some even come with a free syringe.  Some simple injections you can make are apple juice (plain or jazzed up), beer with seasonings, a doctored up chicken broth and one of my favorites a Lite Apple Brine.  Since it's injected I like lower salt than you would use for an immersion brine.  My Lite Apple Brine's ratio is 1 gram of canning salt mixed into 1 ounce of apple juice.  If you buy an 8oz bottle of apple juice, just add 8 grams of canning salt, shake it and you are ready to inject.     Years ago I asked Old Dave, an online friend, for help on an injection for a pastramied turkey breast recipe I was developing.  He sent me a modified version of Shakes Injectable Brine, which is fancier than my Lite Apple Brine.... and guess what, I really like it too.  Here is the recipe... and if you want to read more, I'll have the link to my write-up below.  BTW, I was skeptical of the cloves, but I tried the first one following the recipe and it's good.  My only variation is I'll use agave nectar instead of the honey sometimes.    Old Dave's Poultry Injectable Brine, based off of "Shakes" Injectable Brine. 
      32oz clean water (non-chlorinated and not softened)
      1/4 cup pickling salt
      2 teaspoons of TenderQuick
      1/3 cup clover honey
      3-4 bay leaves
      1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
      1/2 teaspoon pickle spice

      Heat it up in a sauce pan but do not boil. For a 12-15 pound turkey, inject 2 oz in each leg, 2 oz in each thigh, and 4 oz in each side of the breast. 16 oz total per turkey. I like to do the injection at least 8-10 hours before the fire.   My Pastramied Turkey Breast write-up can be found HERE   EDIT, you smoke them until the internal is 165° to 170°.  An injection will help keep them moist even at the 170° temp.  I like a mix of cherry and hickory, but keep the amount gentle.  Apple would be a safe bet for your first one and you can always use a stronger wood next time.  
    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
