Has anyone ever brined  a piece of venison for moisture?

I've marinated venison.  But haven't brined it.  Might be good.

never brined it. i don't soak it in water either. i try to keep as much of the blood in the meat as possible. it's the blood that makes it moist and flavorful. just skin it, butcher it, rinse it, sprinkle with black pepper and garlic salt, and grill slowly--not over cooking. enjoy.

I have cured it in a brine. Three weeks in a brine and then smoke. Comes out almost as good as pork ham

I have corned several roasts and it turns out quite well. I have it generally in reubens and then make corned venison hash out of the leftovers. I have also done a German Sauerbraten several times. That also comes out really well.

On the smoke side, I have done pastrami a few times, which isn’t a full liquid brine, but similar idea. You cure the meat for a week or so in the fridge with a curing salt and seasoning and then smoke it. That also comes out very well. I have done this with a large loin and it was excellent. Flavorful and tender.

I've brined turkeys for short periods (~24hrs) to add moisture to the meat. Was Just wondering if it'd work for venison. Made the turkey more forgiving when I smoked it.

It has been a while since I have cured any deer but the best i remember, it did make it moister. I know it does with the pork hams and bacon i do every year

I've not Brined venison, but I have larded it with pork fat.

Makes it nice and moist with good mouth feel. Deer Tallow never quite melts in the mouth, so pork fat makes a good substitute.

Agreed Carcass. Skin it, butcher it and vacuum seal it up. Salt pepper and garlic powder. Just ate one of the inner looms out of my buck this week and it was awesome like that.
