BBQ Bacon Venison recipe

Preparation Time: 4 hours | Cooking Time: 20 minutes

In this super simple recipe, venison chunks are marinated in apple cider, then covered in BBQ sauce and wrapped in bacon slices. The chunks are then skewered and fried on a BBQ until tender.


  • 900g venison loin, chopped into large 5cm chunks
  • 675g smoked sliced bacon
  • 1 litre apple cider
  • 400ml BBQ sauce


  1. Place venison loin into a bowl and cover with apple cider. Cover and put into the fridge for 2-3 hours. Uncover and drain, discarding the cider. Put back into the bowl, cover with BBQ sauce and stir well.

  2. Wrap each venison chunk in a slice of bacon, removing most of the excess BBQ sauce. Skewer a few chunks onto a soaked wooden skewer.

  3. Heat a BBQ over a medium heat and lightly oil the cooking grate. BBQ, turning regularly, for 15-20 minutes or until the venison and bacon are cooked and tender.

If you don't want to marinate the venison in alcohol, try using apple juice or a mix or apple juice and apple cider vinegar. Recipe serves 6-8.
