Will this work?

Recommended Posts

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 figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
    • You've got the right idea. There are a ton of bacon recipes here on HSO if you search for bacon - I've pasted one here to what seemed like one of the more popular brines. I made bacon once, and it turned out OK, but it's a long process.  Good luck and let us know how it turn out.  
    • Reverse seared a big thick 3lb cowboy ribeye for Father’s Day over charcoal. The novelty of the idea was fun. Then after cooking you realize you pay a lot of money for bone and fat and not a lot of meat.   Lesson learned to just go with a nice thick regular ribeye steak instead next time.  
    • Well this weekend certainly wasn't ideal for fishing weather. Between strong winds and storms every day Friday-Sunday it made it hard to get some good quality fishing time in. Just kept getting chased off the water with thunder and lightning in the area every day and night. Never saw a lot rain but plenty of storms in the area to keep us off the water.   Did manage to catch some fish regardless just nothing big enough or worth keeping. Not a keeper walleye caught and lots of skinny 8-9" perch which were all released.
