  • 3 1/2 pounds pounds venison loin  in one piece
  • 2 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 tsp Cracked Black Pepper
  • 2 tbsp Garlic Granulated
  • 1 tbsp Onion Powder
  • 2 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 2 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1 tbsp Chili Powder
  • 2 tsp Dry Mustard


  • Upon cooking any cut of Venison, always cut away as much of the silver skin and fat off. It will be hard to chew.
  • Using a paper towel, dry the backstraps and place it in a covered container.
  • In a small bowl, combine and mix all the spices, salt & pepper, and sugar.
  • Using the powder mixture, cover all sides of the meat. Then, refrigerate it for 8 hours or overnight for the best flavor. If you brine it longer, it will be more flavorful.
  • Setup your smoker and preheat it to 180°F. Put the meat on the grates and put your smoker probe or another good meat thermometer into the thickest part of the loin.
  • Let the lid or door of the smoker close as much as possible.
  • For medium rare, smoke the meat until it reached 135°F for the internal temperature. It will take 2 hours but it will also take up to 4 hours if you have a thicker cut of the loin.
  • When the meat is done, tent the meat with foil and let it rest for 15 minutes. Serve and Enjoy!
