Try smoking those big roasts
I bought some "sweet and smoky" rub at WalMart and rubbed it on a 8 pound elk roast, put it in a plastic bag and placed in refrigerator overnight.
Smoked it in the smoker 225 degrees for about 12 hours, squirt with apple juice about ever 1-2 hours. YUM. Nice and tender and tasty. If there are any leftovers they make the most delicious chili. ( a big if as there is usually none left.
