Venison Spaghetti Sauce

This is an Italian meat sauce suitable for spaghetti, lasagna, ravioli, whatever. It uses an “Equalizer” technique I stumbled upon by accident.

Poultry Brine

Brining improves flavor, reduces toughness, and adds moisture. Most meats benefit – but lean, tough meats (like game) benefit most of all.For wild birds brining opens up vast cooking options that otherwise may produce dry, tough meat.

Wild Turkey Bratwurst

This is a great generic bratwurst recipe, and wild turkey meat is a fine base for sausage. But like most recipes adapted from domestic to wild meat, fat is a critical factor.

Red Meat Rub

This is a salt-free rub.

Dry-brine meat about 12 hours in adance with 1/2 tsp. kosher salt per 2lbs of meat (subtract bone weight). Alternatively, inject salted broth or stock.

Apply about 2 tsp of rub per lb

Feral Hog/Pork Rub

Salt-free rub. Dry-brine 2-12 hours in advance with 1/2 tsp. kosher salt per 2# of meat. Ribs are half bone by weight.

1 Batch makes ≈ 1.5 cups. Use about 1/3 cup per butt. Lay heavy on ribs.
