Cookouts: This is how we roll!

House 009House 010House 011


Grilling out is the PERFECT way to have a fun, healthy get together.

We used an olive oil mister (which I love because it controls how much you), ground pepper, and Italian seasoning for all the veggies.

For the fish (tilapia & salmon) and chicken, we used olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, ground pepper, and Italian seasoning.

For the deer tenderloin, we used Dell’s sauce. (High in sodium- any suggestions for something else next time? We were trying to avoid the “gamey” taste.)

We also had corn on the cob (we even shucked it ourselves!) & sliced apples for dessert!

Who else is ready for summer & some cookouts???

I don't know about deer, but there is a rub that Josh and I just love. I can't remember the name but it comes in a small short jar with a black screw top - it's a cinnamon and ground clove mix that we put on all our meats and some veggies. It has a 'warm' earthy taste and is pretty versatile.

I don't know about the sodium, but I always throw the venison in a large ziploc with a bottle of Italian or Balsamic dressing 1-3 days and we NEVER taste the 'game'. The deer are usually pretty young and tasty though....but I think the longer you marinate, the less it tastes like a deer! I wrote about grilling today too! LOVE IT.

Instead of Dales, we use Allegro. Very good taste! They have all flavors. They even make one called Game Tame..for wild game. I have bought this at kroger and walmart.

Bragg's Amninos!!! I LOVE this stuff! You can get it in the organic section at Kroger, I have not been able to find it at Publix.

You can also soak your deer meat in milk (or buttermilk) and that will pull out the gamey taste!
