Venison Cheesesteak Dip on the Smoker

A deliciously cheesy dip with venison, onion, bell peppers, and loaded with creamy melty cheese.

This smoked venison cheesesteak dip is a crowd pleaser. It’s loaded with all of your favorite cheesesteak flavors and then some. It’s prepped in mere minutes then can sit on the smoker while you prepare other food for your party. I like to use ground meat to save some effort, but you could always shave up a venison hindquarter and make a more authentic cheesesteak dip.

So How’s it Made?

This is about as easy as it gets. We’ll start off browning ground venison in a pan. Then simply drain off any fat and season with your favorite steak rub. After that, we’re basically dumping all of the other ingredients into our baking dish and placing it in the smoker. You don’t even have to mix it before you put it in. Just remember to give it a few good stirs as it cooks. Easy enough, right?
