Serves: 4
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 1 hour 5 minutes

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 diced onion
  • 1 cup bread crumbs

  • 2 teaspoons Hi Mountain Western Sizzler Steak seasoning
  • Marinara sauce
  • Mozzarella


1. Using a knife, remove the stem and seeds from bell and banana peppers.

8. Remove the venison stuffed peppers from the smoker and enjoy.
