well, a buddy of mine killed his 4th deer this week and gave me the hams, back straps, and tenderloins. I'm going to make a big pot of stew tomorrow night, cook half the back straps in the frying pan on Sunday, and the other half I think I'll cook on the grill, with this spice combo I been using on my steaks, real slow Monday. damn I'm hungry! this is all. PAD!
