 Ingredients List

  • Backstraps
  • Bacon
  • Maple syrup
  • Toothpicks


Remove all of the silverskin (naturally). Cut thin strip of backstrap WITH
the grain approx 1/2 inch thick. Lay the strips out and cover with a strip
of bacon (use as many strips of bacon as it takes to cover the backstrap
strip). Roll the backstrap up with the bacon inside and use toothpicks to
secure the backstrap/bacon pinwheels.

Pour the maple syrup into a flat bowl and lay pinwheels in the syrup. Turn
to insure that each side is soaked and let sit at least ten minutes. Longer
is fine.

Lay the pinwheels soaked in syrup on the grill over a low heat and cover.
Check on them closely and you will have to determine when to turn them.
They cook fairly quickly even over a low heat.

Serve with rice or whatever. They are very presentable and taste GREAT! My
family loves to eat deer but the kids and wife all agree that this is their

I have never tried variations on this recipe (ie cook in the oven, table
syrup instead of maple, etc). I guess that variations would work, but why
ruin a sure thing?
