Default Venison brine????

Has anyone brined venison to maintain juiciness? I know the go to is bacon wrap venison on the smoker or grill but I would like to maintain that venison flavor. I've grilled backstraps and sweet meat with pretty good success without drying it out but I wanted to try some venison in the smoker.

I can't say I've ever seen anyone brine red meat. Does it work? Or is there a better way?

I saw in a post somewhere on here that someone smoked an entire hind quarter. That sounds like something I'd like to try if I am fortunate enough to tag a deer this year.

Not a brine, but we often soak in buttermilk overnight!

I would use Mad Hunky Nekkid Brine. That way you could add any spices you want for flavor or no spices for just the pure venison flavor.
I have used it on beef & lamb, and it worked excellent.

Absolutely worth it...I have used the MH Nekkid on beef with great results...I cant imagine that it wouldn't be excellent on venison...

Not to preach to the choir...but Nekkid and your seasonings..or..lack thereof... will ensure a juicy tender product. Most likely anyway. You dont take Vennie to 3214F right?

Salt H2O brine without any flavoring will make your meat juicy. Swims,fly's or fart on the range, it don't matter!

I guess I need some Nekkid Brine. Had a feeling that might come up in the conversation. I stop just shy of 3214F so it ends up there after a few minute rest, got to keep the wife happy.

Google venison pastrami. I brined and smoked a deer quarter once upon a time and it turned out very good. I can't find the recipe though.

I usually marinade venison.

red wine, bayleaves, few splashes worcestershire sauce, pepper some garlic - leave overnight.

If it's an old deer or shoulder then go 50/50 red wine and coke.
Coke helps to break down the tough muscle fibres.
If you use it with a smaller younger animal the meat can get a little mushy - kinda like bad SV.

Coke is also good for cleaning your drains. jewellery & toilets. Why on earth people drink it, I have no idea

It's essentially a mixture of neat acids.
Phosphoric acid, citric acid, carbonic acid.
Just evil stuff.

We all have to die of something in the end I suppose. OD'ing on Coca-Cola seems as good (although an unlikely) away to go as any other one might think up.

I always guffaw inside a little when I hear of how submerging a roofing nail or deck screw in a glass of Coke will eat it away to nothing in 4 short days or whatever the timeframe is usually quoted at.

Funny how no one seems to add the caveat that a glass of Coke doesn't sit in your stomach much longer than 10 minutes or so in the first place, huh?...

Just my $0.02, anyways.
