Ithaca: Flower Power Smoked Bacon & Apple Wrapped Deer Roast

For this recipe I used a deer roast but you can certainly substitute a pork or beef roast if you prefer. As always, I encourage my fellow chiefs to experiment and alter these recipes to suit their palates.
Smoked Bacon & Apple Roast

Yield: 6-8 servings (depending on size of roast)
Prep Time: 5 minutes

4-6 lbs. deer roast

Slice an apple and make a bacon blanket.
