I used a recipe from "charcuterie" by Michael Ruhlman. I have altered the recipe for what I did vs. his printed recipe,, but don't be a jackass. Curing stuff is easy if you aren't stupid. Be smart, botulism is no joke. I used a cheap scale to weigh all measurements.

I used a few single muscles from the last meat of last years buck. I think the biggest muscle was a sirloin, but not sure.
Approx 5 lbs of game meat in single muscles.

Brine:
1 gallon distilled water
350 grams kosher salt
225 grams cane sugar
42 grams Prague powder #1
8 grams quality picking spice
90 grams dark brown sugar
5 cloves minced garlic

Boil brine and mix, then let cool and put in fridge to cool. Once cool, place meat into brine for 5 full days with a small plate over meat to submerge, flipping meat daily.

Once 5 days is done, remove meat from brine and discard brine and rinse and dry meat.

Place meat in fridge for 24 hours to dry.

Rub:

24 grams fresh coriander seeds
30 grams fresh peppercorns
2 tbs liquid smoke

Lightly toast rub and liquid smoke in dry cast iron skillet until fragrant, a few minutes.

Crush rub and apply to meat.

I don't have a smoker so in lieu of smoking and steaming, I used my new sous vide machine.

I vac sealed the meat into two packages and cooked in sous vide a total of 36 hours. 12 hours at 130deg and 24 hours at 150.

When done I placed in freezer to slightly freeze for 2 hours and then used a meat slicer to slice... amazing
