forty proof dutch oven deer

4 pounds venison -cut in one-inch cubes- no fat or silver skin
1 clove of fresh garlic
½ cup butter (you may need more )
1 sliced and seeded green pepper
1 cup chopped carrots
2 medium onions, sliced
1/3cup flour
1 bottle of brandy
2 cans condensed onion soup
2 soup cans water
season salt
fresh ground black pepper

dig your coal pit, start coals off to red hot
when bottom layer goes to ash add your dutch oven right on top of spread out coals
In a Dutch oven, sauté venison cubes in butter until brown on all sides.
Add onions, garlic and veggies
sauté until vegetables are wilted.
Sprinkle with flour.
Stir in (1 cup of brandy) the soup and water
Stir to blend.
Cover and place on coals at edge of campfire
Add coals to the oven lid.
Cook 45 minutes, check for tenderness (rotate oven occasionally)
this may take up to two hours to cook and build a gravy
you have to maintain your bed of coals and refresh oven lid from time to time as well
Season to taste with season salt and fresh ground pepper
this is great in the fall, cook this in your yard while your splitting wood or raking leaves
serve with remaining brandy, sitting down...give me enough notice....i'll bring the

Do you have to use a pit or can you use some other sort of heating element to use with a dutch oven. My homeowners association would have a fit if they knew I was digging a pit to cook wild game.
Good Hunting,
