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

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
