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 roas...

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 eat...

This was probably the best Elk I've ever cooked! It was so moist and just melted in my mouth! YUM! I might go as far as saying it was the best thing I've ever cooked!

yummy yummy! what a good idea to do with elk! didnt have a gammy livery taste to it...nothing! it was so good!

Delicious! We used sour french rolls, buttered/garlic toasted under broiler. Yummy!

Used venison and made the recipe exactly. This was so good! We will make it again!

everyone loved it

Really excellent! I found this to be heavily spiced but it tastes great. If anything, next time I would cut down on the black pepper. Great recipe... its a keeper!!

Pretty good, thanks for the recipe :)
