I used this for the first time on back straps from a deer harvested this November. It was a hit! My wife, dad, and sister (none of whom are hunters) loved the steaks. My kids (6,4,3, and 18 months) cleaned their plates, with the older two asking me to make it again soon! Took some to the neighbor across the street who is a lifelong hunter and he ate the entire thing right in front of me and said it was absolutely delicious. Just an awesome, all around, one-stop-shop seasoning. Nothing else needed, but this. I read the reviews a bunch of times before finally pulling the trigger. Don't be like me. It's totally worth it and the sooner you get it, the sooner you'll enjoy!
