What would you say is the best way to cut up an elk, I mean into what (roasts,steaks,jerkey,etc.)

roasts, then that way if you decide later that you'd rather have a steak then you cut the roast up a little bit more. Or you can cut the roast into jerky or just burger the thing. I prefer good roast and steaks but every now and again my belly enjoys some jerky.

Some roast won't end up being very good or tender steaks...rump roast is better as a roast. some of the round is better as a roast....t-bones, ribs, tenderloins...all good steaks. Neck and shank..stew meat or sausage....as far a i'm concerned, the rest of the meat is for jerky, hamburger and stew....
Of course, some people can cook up an old shoe and make it taste good...not me... :mrgreen:
I once received a 8 lb. neck roast from the butcher....what the heck is that? :lol:
my wife and i love deer burger. we put it in everything from enchiladas to taco salad. You just cant go wrong with wild game.
I prefer steaks and chops, once in awhile some roasts, and do not forget the jerky
Deer and Elk burger are infinitely better than ground beef when used for spaghetti, tacos, etc. I tricked my wife one time when I substituted deer for beef when making tacos. She emphatically stated that it was the best taco meat she had ever had. 2 years later I told her about the swap.

She still won't eat wild game. :oops:
