Bacon Wrapped Deer Backstrap Tenderloin Recipe
- 2 Pieces of Backstrap
- 10 Slices of Bacon
- BBQ Rub
Take out 2 pieces of deer backstrap tenderloin, and a pack of bacon and let the meat warm up to room temperature for 20 minutes. During this time, preheat your BBQ.
While you're waiting for your meat to warm up, take this time to prepare the glazing according to the ingredients list above.
Season tenderloin with salt and pepper.
Wrap each piece of tenderloin with bacon making sure to cover the whole length of the tenderloin.
Place the bacon wrapped tenderloin in the BBQ. Insert BBQ Thermometer into the tenderloin and set an alarm for 125 degrees F (52 degrees Celcius).
Cover the BBQ and cook the tenderloin for about 30 minutes or until your BBQ Thermometer alarm tells you the internal temperature of the tenderloin has reached 125 degrees (52 degrees C).
Once the internal temperature has reached 125 degrees F (52 degrees C), liberally apply the glazing onto the bacon wrapped tenderloin. Make sure to cover all sides of the bacon wrapped tenderloin.
Cover the BBQ and set an alarm for 130 degrees F (55 degrees C) on your BBQ Thermometer. This will take no more than 10 minutes or so.
Once your alarm goes off, your BBQ Bacon Wrapped Deer Backstrap Tenderloin is ready. Carefully remove them from the BBQ and let them rest for 10-15 minutes so all the juices in the meat can spread out evenly to give you a succulent tenderloin.
After resting, go ahead and slice up that tenderloin and get it in your belly! Enjoy.
