Ok have since learned there are 2 types of hammers/lollipops

There is those that are good meat wrapped around the bone and theres mine which is straight cut and good for soups/crock pots.

Yes it was tough but pink inside which indicated med/rare. Once past the sinus/tendons was ok . Trial and error. Still edible

Nice, we've been slumming it on venison lately. I so wish I had a fancy cooker/smoker but then I'd just drink more beer. That's not a bad thing right?
