What is the best way to cook deer backstrap?
Lightly brush olive oil on both sides of the backstrap to ensure full coverage.
The olive oil helps to keep moisture in to prevent the venison from drying out.
Grill for 3½ minutes on one side, and then flip for an additional 3 minutes.
For maximum flavor and tenderness, cook to medium rare or on the rare side.8 Jan 2018

How do you know when venison is cooked?
You want to cook your venison until it reaches an internal temperature of 130° to 140° F and then remove it off the grill. Providing it wasn’t cut too thin, it should just be slightly pink on the inside. If it is still pink on the inside that means it is still nice and moist in there too.21 Feb 2017
