If you’re not familiar with Tiger meat, you’re probably not from the Dakotas where this staple dish can ‘make or break a meat locker.’ Raw eggs are a factor in this recipe, so if that makes you a little bit squeamish then you may want to skip this one and opt for something more like chili.

There’s nothing like a sandwich made with shredded meat and BBQ sauce. It’s a little bit cowboy, maybe, but you really can’t beat it. This recipe calls for elk, but if you are only currently in possession of a venison roast you could easily sub that in here.

Quick tip: If you’d like to use BBQ sauce you already have on hand, roast the meat with light seasoning and dress with sauce after shredding.
