Can venison ribs be cooked on the BBQ?

Yes. Soak them in salt water for a couple of hours or parboil them slightly; then wrap them with bacon to keep them moist. Use toothpicks to hold it on while they cook. They cook quick so don't overcook them. If you want, while you are butchering, you could leave the loin in on top of the ribs for a little more meat. I prefer to bake them in the oven with potatoes and carrots . Either way the tallow (fat) will congeal at a higher temperature than beef or pork fat and will line the roof of your mouth. It's an acquired taste but you won't starve or get ill.

What wine goes best with game meat like elk and venison?

There are many wines that work extremly well with game meats like elk and venison. Here are some suggestions and reasons on why they work well. As a rule of thumb chose full-bodied red wines made from grapes like Syrah, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and hearty Merlot/Merlot blend wines. A common grape varietal for paring with these two meats would be wines made from Syrah/Shiraz grape. These meats can be rich, have some weight and for the lack of a better term 'gamey'. The term gamey is not being used in a negative way but since these two meats tend not to be farmed , raised and processed in the same rigorous manner as beef and chicken it can tend to not take on the sterile smell of chicken or beef. Take a look at Syrah from the northern Rhone regions of France like... Croze Hermitage, Hermitage, Cornas and St. Joseph. These wines tend to take on a rich fulfilling gamy/earthy quality character of their own. You can also find Syrah in the French region of Languedoc-Roussillon which is a large region situated around the Mediterranean cost in the south of France. Both of these regions tend to blend their wines with other red grape varietals such as Grenache, Lladoner Pelut, Mourvedre, Cinsault, Cousine as well as other varieties that give the wines a rustic profile. If you prefer Syrah wines that are less earthy and more lush, rich fruit try Syrahs from areas like South Africa, California, Australia and South America. Other wines to try would be those from Southern Rhone which are Grenache based but tend to carry a rustic quality are from Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Gigonds, Lirac and Vacqueyras. Grenache from New World countries may tend to be 'too pretty' for game meats. If you really want to get into the spirit of things try Pinotage, Pastougrains, and Nero d'Avola wines.

Deer meat can be termed venison whether it is cooked or not. The term venison (which can be fairly applied to a few other meats) has been handed down from at least the 11th century and before. It was applied to meat that came from animals that were hunted. And that was a lot of animals. The word venison is derived from the Latin word venor, which means to hunt or pursue. Surf the link for more information.

The difference in names of live animals versus when they become food is a result of the Norman conquest of England. The Anglo-Saxon natives of the island who tended to the herds of cattle or sheep and hunted the deer called them by their old English names, names derived from the German language. The Normans lords, who saw the meat only when it was on a plate in front of them, spoke french and called the meat by its french name.

Is it safe to eat venison while pregnant?

I ate a lot of wild game while I was pregnant. You just have to make sure that it is cooked the entire way through. Even if it looks done give it a few more minutes or even seconds to be sure.

Should you use vinegar to remove the gamey flavor from venison?

I tried it, but what i like best is using the adolphs or other brands of meat marinades that come in the paper pouch, seems to make it more tender and deer steaks sure do taste better

ANSWER:I like to use buttermilk instead. It tenderizes the meat and removes that gamey taste. Just soak it in buttermilk overnight. Then you can use any maninade you like. I prefer Dales sauce.

If you like onion and garlic they will take the gamey taste out of any game
