Smoke Cooking Adds Layers of Flavor to Wild Game

Smoker manufacturer Cookshack, Inc. knows that outdoorsmen love the flavor of wood smoke as a perfect complement to wild game. Game birds, meats, and fish take on complex flavor dimensions when seasoned with aromatic herbs and spices, and slowly smoked over live wood embers.

Birds can be stuffed and smoked or glazed with a smoky sauce. Popular smoked fish include salmon, sea bass, bluefish, snapper, and even catfish. Summer sausage and jerky venison are always appreciated at holiday parties and events.

The following recipe, and other delicious game recipes, can be found at

Drunken Venison
Venison meat
Kosher salt
Black Velvet Canadian whiskey
White vinegar
Pour kosher salt over venison meat. Rub into meat well. Cover with plastic and place in the refrigerator overnight.
The next day, before smoking, wash the salt off the meat. Mix together equal parts whiskey, white vinegar, and Coca-Cola for the mop. Place meat into smoker. Load wood box.

Mop once per hour, making sure to coat all the meat completely. Smoke meat for 3 - 4 hours, or until done. This recipe will work just as well on any game bird.

Recommended wood: hickory, mesquite, apple or cherry
