Moose Roast Cooked Rare

We are currently travelling in Newfoundland and have been gifted a frozen moose roast. However, we only have a cast iron pot and campfire too cook it in. Do you have any tips or suggestions for cooking moose on a campfire? And is there an internal temperature that we should aim for? Thanks

Bree, thanks for reaching out! (I do apologize for this late answer!)
You could totally cook your moose roast over the campfire in a cast-iron pot. I would suggest you make a good fire maybe even add some barbecue briquettes to maintain the heat. Be sure to add some liquid and cover and cook. Cook it to your desired doneness just like you would cook a beef roast.
If you like, you could also add some vegetables to the your cast iron pot as well. Carrots and potatoes are always a welcome addition to a moose roast dinner.

You are in Newfoundland, the home of Jigs dinner. Ask a few locals about it, it's basically a one pot dinner.
