Prepare Pellet Smoker or any other bbq grill for indirect cooking at 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Add your favorite wood to the hot coals for smoke flavor.
To prepare the stuffing sauté
Yellow Onion (1)
Baby Portobello Mushrooms (3 cups)
over medium heat.
Cream Cheese (1 cup)
and fold in
Bacon Bits (1/4 cup)
Italian Flat-Leaf Parsley (1/2 cup)
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.
All-Purpose Spice Rub (2 Tbsp)
and stuff with cream cheese mixture.
Wrap the outside with strips of
Bacon (2 lb)
and season with
Barbecue Rub (2 Tbsp)
Place each backstrap on a wire cooling rack and set on the smoker.
Cook until internal temperature reaches 130 degrees F (54 degrees C) or your desired doneness. The bacon should be brown on the outside.
Allow the backstrap to rest for 10 minutes and cut into individual pieces for serving.
