What's this?

Departing from the typical BBQ meats, we've turned this cut of wild game elk into a unique, earthy, and delicious version of BBQ.

Ingredients

  • 6 Pound Elk, shoulder

  • 12 Fluid Ounce beef broth

  • 1 Whole meat injector

  • 1 Tablespoon kosher salt

  • 1 Tablespoon ground black pepper

Steps

  • 1

    Take elk roast out of the fridge and allow to sit on counter for 30-60 minutes before cooking.
  • 2

    When ready to cook, set the Traeger to 225℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
  • 3

    Inject the elk all over with beef broth. Combine salt and pepper and rub over entire roast.
  • 4

    Place on preheated grill and cook for 4 to 5 hours or until an instant read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the meat registers 145℉. Remove from grill and allow to rest for 30 minutes before slicing.

    Serve with baked beans, potato salad, coleslaw, white bread, Traeger BBQ sauce or your favorite BBQ sides and sauces. Enjoy!
