Servings 6 people


  • 2 ½ pounds moose loin or tender roast
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • Traeger Big Game Rub, or your favorite rub
  • 14 ounce whole berry cranberry sauce
  • 1 tbsp freshly chopped mint packed
  • ¼ tsp ground cardamom
  • kosher salt
  • freshly cracked pepper


  • Start tying the loin or roast with kitchen twine. Then, season and cover it with salt and let it sit at room temperature for 2 hours.
  • Set up your smoker and set the temperature to 275 degrees Fahrenheit. While it is still preheating, get a pan and heat olive oil over medium-high heat.
  • Dry your meat and pat it with paper towels.
  • When the oil in the pan starts to smoke, sear the meat quickly on all sides for a golden crust. Remove it from heat then sprinkle and cover it generously with rub.
  • Place the meat in the smoker at 275 degrees Fahrenheit temperature. Cook it until it reaches an internal temperature of 125 degrees for about an hour.
  • Remove the meat from the smoker and wrap it loosely with aluminum foil to allow the meat to make it at 135 degrees for medium rare. Let the Smoked Moose Roast rest for 10-15 minutes.

Cranberry-mint sauce

  • Do this while smoking the meat. Using a saucepan, combine the cranberry sauce, mint, cardamom, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook it in low heat while stirring occasionally, let it warm through then remove from heat.
  • Finally, you can now serve the Smoked Moose Roast together with your cranberry-mint sauce.
