OMG, are you in for a treat! I can't live without my crockpots. You can save so much money cause you can buy the tougher, cheaper cuts of meats, throw them in the crockpot and they cook up fork tender. Plus, the fact that you can throw everything in, walk away for 6-8 hours, and your food is waiting for you when you get back to it, and it's hot and yummy! You just don't know what you're missing not having a crockpot, or two. I have 3!

Me to, but I thought I would post the original recipe. When we have deer in the freezer, I totally forget about beef.

freezer

We have 4 in the freezer now, I usually break it up and get chicken on sale or sausage, but for about 2 years they eat pretty much all deer, and love it--(right before this hunting season, I ran out of deer and had to buy beef:weeping: and the kids asked why dinner tasted so weird and didn't want to eat it)

We have 3 processed in the freezer so far. Hubby has been working alot lately and hasn't had the time to hunt, but he will be able to do a little hunting this next week. The guy that processes our deer makes the best sausage (his own recipe) and it taste better and is actually cheaper than the store bought sausage. I have him package it in 1 lb bulk packages so I can make patties or use it in recipes. He also does the links, but we love the bulk.

I do buy chicken and turkey on sale at the store. BIL is butchering two pigs here shortly and he always give us chops and roasts, but we don't eat alot of pork cause hubby has gout and I have high blood pressure (controlled, but still!). We just love the taste of deer meat, and it's nice not having to even look at the beef prices in the stores. I prefer my ground deer over any and all hamburger out there.
