  • 1 cup Yoshida Gourmet Sauce


  • 2 cans Coke Cola

more lemon pepper

    more salt

      Montreal Steak Seasoning


        Aaron uses a non-iodized salt, I perfer to use Kosher salt. Like any recipe and personal taste, adjust as you see fit. Or, if it simply doesn't fit--then you must aquit. Aaron says it took him 10 years and 6 elk to perfect this recipe. What were you doing the other 4 years Aaron?


        Using a 2 gallon non-reactive pot, place a single layer of meat on the bottom and sprinkle some of the mixed dry cure over it. Add another layer of meat, dry cure, etc. You should use all of the dry cure. Cover and refrigerate 12 hours.

        Add two cans of coke cola and mix well. At this point, Aaron adds more salt and lemon pepper. Personally, I found this a little too much salt, you judge for yourself. Refigerate again for 12 hours.

        Add the wet cure, mix well and refrigerate another 12 hours.

        Place meat on smoker racks and sprinkle with Montreal Seasoning. Here, Aaron again adds more salt. Smoke to your desired degree of doneness and enjoy.
