  • 2 pounds venison back strap, cut into 2-inch chunks
  • 1 quart apple cider
  • Thick sliced bacon
  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups homemade barbecue sauce


Marinate the venison chunks in apple cider overnight. Drain cider and discard. Pat the chunks dry and place in the barbecue sauce until you are ready to grill it.

Let the venison come to room temperature and wrap each chunk with bacon; securing with toothpicks. Grill until the bacon is slightly burnt; or 15 minutes. It's better to cook it "low and slow" for the best flavor.
