Reminiscent of sloppy joes, this recipe can be used with elk or venison - it takes away that gamey taste!

This was really good very easy LOTS of flavor. I added 3 more tbsp of brown sugar (personal pref.) and it needed a tbsp of apple cider vinegar (made a big difference!) My small 2 lb elk roast took about 7 hours on high in order to shred and I had to add about a 1/2 c. water at the end to keep it moist. Be careful with the hot sauce!! The flavors really condense and a few drops made it pretty spicey. I served it on deli rolls toasted with mayo & parmesean a slice of provalone and some homemade cole slaw on top....Hubby LOVED it!

This sauce is amazing!!! I will use this recipe for ANY type of meat....would be delicious for barbequed beef or pulled pork as well. It really was perfect for elk one would think they were eating beef! I followed the advice of "FAT DOG LANE" and added a tbsp. of vinegar. It did add some even better flavor....if that's possible! Thanks for sharing such a fabulous recipe! It's a keeper! Read More
