The Backstrap is the loin of the animal; it’s the tender meat sitting right along the backbone on each side. For this recipe I make a slit down the length of the backstrap to butterfly it. Then it gets stuffed with a mixture of cream cheese, bacon, mushrooms, onion, and parsley. The whole thing gets wrapped in bacon to hold it together and to add a little fat because deer is incredibly lean meat.

Step 1
Prepare Pellet Smoker or any other bbq grill for indirect cooking at 350 degrees F (176 degrees C). Add your favorite wood to the hot coals for smoke flavor.
Step 2
To prepare the stuffing sauté Yellow Onion (1) and Baby Portobello Mushroom (8 ounce) over medium heat.
Step 3
Add to Cream Cheese (8 ounce) and fold in Bacon Bits (1/4 cup) and Italian Flat-Leaf Parsley (1/2 cup).
Step 4
Trim excess silver skin from Venison Backstrap (2) and cut a slit down the length to butterfly it open. Be careful not to cut through the entire piece.
Step 5
Season with Killer Hogs The A.P. Rub (2 tablespoon) and stuff with cream cheese mixture.
Step 6
Wrap the outside with strips of Bacon (2 pound) and season with Killer Hogs BBQ Rub (2 tablespoon).
Step 7
Place each backstrap on a wire cooling rack and set on the smoker.
Step 8
Cook until internal temperature reaches 130 degrees F (54 degrees C) or your desired doneness. The bacon should be brown on the outside.
Step 9
Allow the backstrap to rest for 10 minutes and cut into individual pieces for serving.
