This was incredible! Used a venison shoulder roast, which didn't shred so we just sliced.Had to make a few tweaks because I eat paleo: used tomato sauce for the ketchup and coconut palm sugar for the brown sugar and coconut aminos for the soy. These changes still made for an amazing dish!

Super delicious but too peppery for my taste. I only used half of the pepper.

Great recipe with fantastic beef flavor! You seriously don't know that you are eating venison! Even my girlfriend who can be a pain in the butt when it comes to eating venison asked if I could make some more of those "hot beef" sandwiches for her!

Very good, my husband is a deer hunter so we used venison but it would also work well for pork. Sauce had a good flavor, meat was very tender!

I do not care for the game flavor & you cannot taste game in this recipe. It is a more savory than sweet BBQ sauce.

This was wonderful! I borrowed a roast from my boyfriend's family to make this recipe, and it makes me wish I had a hunter in my family. Even if you aren't a venison fan, this recipe definitely makes it more than edible.

Another winning recipe from Taste of Home. This was quick and easy, and went over really well with everyone who tried it. I really love the smokey flavor from the Liquid Smoke (I used the Hickory BBQ version rather than Mesquite). Will definately be making this again!

I've used this recipe numerous times and every time it turns out great! This is one of my favorite venison recipes. Even people who don't like deer ask me for the recipe.
