Sue's notes for this recipe:
My husband loves to fish and hunt and the boys and I love the results that come off the grill! Venison is extremely lean so the bacon not only adds flavor but the needed fat as well.

Rub roast with olive oil. Sprinkle all sides with salt, pepper, rosemary and thyme.
For Marinade: Mix together the soy sauce, 2tbsp olive oil, garlic and Worcestershire sauce.
Pour marinade over roast in glass baking dish. Cover. Let marinade 2-5 hours in refrigerator.
Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes prior to grilling.
During this time prepare the charcoal grill to med-high heat.
Wrap bacon around roast and secure with toothpicks.
Spray BBQ grill plates with non stick spray. Sear roast 3 minutes per side.
Move roast to medium heat on the grill and continue to grill until the internal temperature reaches 140°F. This is for medium rare, any higher and the roast will be dry and tough.
Remove from grill and let rest 10 minutes before slicing.

Yum...I'll give this a shot. Plenty of moose and venison in the freeze and can't believe I've never tried wrapping in bacon. Thx for posting!
