Venison is quite lean unlike Porky buddy, having a billy full of seasoned oil or butter warm by the fire to baste it would be good, what sort of Deer is it? Muntjac ? You cant beat a plentifull horn eh lol

I'm sure Hugh Fury whipping stool did this on one of his programs...
As PG says it's a very lean meat so I think Hugh got a lod of pig fat and strapped it to the carcass before cooking.
I guess not only did it keep the meat moist but also protected the outer from the worst of the heat from the fire.
His looked really good.
Good luck with yours
