    1. Sorry I missed your post Johnny. I’m sure you probably have already eaten your deer shoulder and I hope it was delicious. For your next shoulder, I like a marinade that’s a little sweet and tangy for shoulders. I have used the following with great results:
      32 oz V-8 Splash Fruit Medley
      ¼ cup of hot sauce
      Salt and Pepper
      1 Tsp of Worcester sauce
      ½ mandarin orange
      2 Tbls of brown sugar
      marinade a minimum of 4 hours. Be careful as the shoulders can dry out and toughen quickly over too high of heat. I try to keep my charcoal grill around 250 degrees. turn the meat frequently and baste each time until internal temp reaches about 160 degrees for medium doneness. The time will vary depending upon thickness and size of shoulders. Hood luck and congrats on your successful hunt!
