Has anyone here ever smoked an elk roast before? I know it can be done because when I was in Minnesota a few years ago I had some. That was some of the best meat I ever had. Any help or pointers would be appreciated.

Let me see if I can mudle through it first.

I am beginning to think that I should approach it the same way you do venison. I am told it is very lean.

elk as you probably know is a very lean meat and tends to dry out quickly and gets "chewy" the longer and dryer it cooks. I've cooked/smoked a number of elk roast. (I use a big green egg) I've used butt rubs on some of mine in the past. Let it sit as long as you need to. When cooking/smoking them I try to stay around 280-300 for cooking and take it out when the themometer hits 143. I let it rest for at least 20 min. Make sure you trim off the fat, the fat contains the gamey flavor if it is going to have a gamey flavor. I also bone mine out prior to cutting and wrapping. For wood, I really like alder chunks. Little chief is making chunks as well as the shredded alder.

Over thirty years ago a buddy of mine got an elk and we did a roast and ribs. We dug a pit in the yard and used apple wood. It was some setup we did but it worked great. We smoked it for a number of hours (can't remember now but most of the day) and it turned out great. Very Happy

Elk is one of the best tasting animals there is! I have never shot one but have friends who have and were generous enough to give me roasts, steaks and burger. I cooked all of it on a webber gril "indirect". To there instructions.

If I had my choice between a beef roast and a elk roast it wouldn't even be a contest, I would take the Elk every time!!
