I'm just delighted with the kind and useful responses: thank you all!
Several mentioned roasting low and slow... we have an excellent electric smoker, and I'm starting to think about using that. We cooked last Christmas' Prime Rib Roast in it for 4-1/2 hours and it was sensational. It was USDA Prime, and I know game is far leaner, so would I slather it with, say, pork fat, bacon drippings, bard it with fat strips, or what do you suggest? I could put a little smoke on it- we have an excellent selection of smoking chips.
With all the ideas, I'm getting excited.
