Smoked roast of venison wrapped in Bacon with sautéed squash

  • 2 cups of your favorite bourbon marinade
  • 1 Venison rear roast (Ball Roast)
  • 1lb bacon
  • ½ stick of butter
  • 2 cups sliced squash or zucchini
  • 4ft of butcher string

Pour 2 cups of your marinade into a bowl. Inject half of the marinade from the bowl into the roast. Pour the remaining marinade in a Ziploc with the roast and let sit for about 3-4 hours. Lay bacon out on a cutting board. Let it sit out for about 5-8minutes to make bacon more malleable and easier to use when wrapping. Lay out bacon and wrap roast and tie off spacing each string about 2inches apart. Smoke meat until desired temperature is reached. Next, sauté the veggies in the pan with a half a stick of butter and serve it with the venison.
