Asian Inspired Flat Iron (Elk)

Asian Inspired Flat Iron (Elk)

Flat Iron is one of my favorite cuts that you do not hear to much about. Very tender and full of flavor. It comes off the front shoulder, more specifically off the muscle group called the Shoulder Clod. You can see Chef Wutsch cut the Flat Iron off a cow elk we hunted...

Orange Marmalade BBQ Wild  Pork

Street Tacos (Duck Style)

Street Tacos (Duck Style)

Duck legs are one of those things we just end up having an abundance of. I think for most of us our natural choice is to bake, roast or smoke the entire bird. For the more adventurous we tend to focus all of our efforts on the breast, and rightly so. Duck...

Wild Hog Schnitzel (With Pickle Juice Brine)

Wild Hog Schnitzel (With Pickle Juice Brine)

If you were asked to plate the most Texas thing you could think of, I bet you would immediately think of Fajitas or Brisket. Those are great choices because of the abundance of great Tex/Mex and BBQ which is often considered the flavor of Texas. I on the other...

Honey Lavender Pork Loin

Sautéed Venison in Mushroom Cream Sauce

Smoked Crane Breast

Smoked Crane Breast

Pineapple Ginger Hoisin Duck
