    Candied bourbon bear backstrap

    One ingredient I forgot to include in the video is chipotle powder, adds a great angle to this marinade!



    Meat
    One bear backstrap

    Marinade
    cup soy sauce
    1 cup Dr. Pepper or root beer
    cup dark brown sugar
    tbsp chipotle powder
    cup tablespoons olive oil
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1 Tbsp dry mustard
    2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
    4-6oz bourbon
    sweet onion, diced


    Glaze
    cup brown sugar
    1 Tbsp cornstarch
    tsp dry mustard
    1 Tbsp butter
    2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
    cup Dr pepper or root beer
    Pink salt
    Fresh ground pepper to taste
    1oz bourbon

    Mix marinade in freezer bag and marinate meat for 24 hours.

    Preheat oven or smoker to 300, while it heats up mix together your glaze ingredients and simmer/stir. Bake backstrap for approximately 90 minutes at which point you can start brushing the glaze on every 5-10 minutes for another 20-30 minutes or until the internal temp hits 170. Tent with tin foil and let it sit in a cooler for 15 minutes before slicing.

    Enjoy!
    Practice at 50, shoot em at 20.

    That looks great thanks for sharing what looks like a great recipe.
    Yup, it's easier to manage hunters (LEH) than it is to manage wildlife. And, generally, LEH satisfies the Guide Outfitter because it limits the number of hunters in their area.
