A friend does this to the rump every year, and I just tried some. DELICIOUS! Like corned beef, but with no slimy gelatin. If we get a second deer this season, I will definitely do this!
Saltpeter (a nitrate) will keep it pink, like store-bought corned beef, but it's not really good for you. I won't use it, the pink color is not important to me.
