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

    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
    • Yes it was.  I really needed one more layer today.  Lots of jakes and hens seen by us this morning.  Still looking for the toms.  Hope you had more luck.
    • There are a lot of apps available for that. Search your app store for "phone tracking" or something similar. Many give you the ability to share your positions so you both can see each other live. You might even have an app already on your phone. For example, I have Lookout Security installed on my phone and it includes the ability to find the location of my phone from another phone or PC. 
    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
    • So proud of my 93 year old dad.  It's getting tougher and tougher just getting him out there, but he still knows what to do once there.    
    • I still gotta tag Moose! I'm going for a Tom only!!   (Personal thing) is ,,, I want to do it with my bow
    • Shaggy parasols are coming up in the shade garden again. Yum.  
    • VTX129 has a great point on nothing smaller than 9". I have a HB 998Ci HD unit. The bottom features that I can pick up are incredible- however I sometimes have a problem picking fish up on it. I have tried to keep my SI width narrower to help ID fish. Overall fantastic tool. The hard to soft transitions are easy to see as are rocks and so forth. On the HB units the larger screened ones come with the High Def transducer.  The smaller units come with a compact transducer. You can find some great prices on models that are being phased out - but they also will quit repairing those units sooner as well. Trade off's. Check out Universal Mania and some others online for pricing. Bass Boat central has a lot of info under Humminbird and Lawrance topics.   Good luck   Steve
