...Oooops.... Guess I need to read a bit more carefully.
Yours, and all the recipe's sound fantastic.
The chipotle sauce Rooster's (the restaurant) makes and sells for their chicken has a unique flavor and is great. Kinda a sweet and sour,chipotle/smoke flavor if you will.
Since it's a sauce instead of a rub, I'm wondering about marinading the deer in it and of coarse applying a layer of sauce prior to smoking.
Can't wait to try.
