Will this work?

8 posts in this topic

Hey all you smokers out there. You guys have been great with all of your information on this site! Here's a question for you.

I would like to smoke some goose breasts by brining them and wrapping them in bacon. Will this work out do you think?

Thanks in advance

First off I really enjoy your pictures.Don't bird hunt anymore and never did it with goose but did ducks.

brine,poked a whole in the breast and inserted a whole clove of garlic,and a chunk of apple,wrap in bacon,baste with mollassis and mashed manderin orange and roll in cracked pepper,and smoke.Works on the grill also but cook 1/2 way then baste and sprinkle with cracked pepper.Goose breast may be too thick and baste may burn??

I tried the recipe from Meatfish and it turned out great. I'm really happy with the results. I brined them with 2 cups kosher salt and 1 cup brown sugar in about 4 qts of water for 22 hours. Then I peeled the silver skin off 3 of the 4 but that was a royal PIA. I cut a slit in those 3 and stuffed it with a slice of apple and a clove of garlic. The 4th was left alone with the silver skin on it. Then I wrapped all 4 of them in bacon and put a baste of molasses and mashed mandarin oranges on top and smoked them for 10 hours at 190 deg with cherry wood.

My final opinion is that removing the silver skin was more work than it was worth. It tasted just fine with it on there. When I do it again I'll use the baste and wrap in bacon and probably try rolling it with cracked pepper since I forgot it this time.

Good eatin!

Thanks again Meatfish

    • I think it's called "Putting America to Work".    And it's a part time job on the same order as getting paid to applaud.     Looks like an easy job that would allow some time for fishing on the side.  Where do I sign up?
    • It's used in most enclosed trailers now but being uncovered would be my concern, treated won't react with the aluminum in a negative way ?
    • Nah...   You won't get an answer from the lefties on that one.   Nor will you get an answer as to why the lefty hate mongers break windows, burn cars, beat people, throw rocks and bottles at police all weekend long exercising their so called "right" to peaceful protest...   And the women's march ??     MC maddona..(who does not reside in America) takes the cake (pun intended) with three f' enhiemers and a threat to blow up the white house...   Frauds and Losers ....        
    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
