    Harvested some fresh goose today, and I am thinking of doing a cured and cold smoked method. Anyone try this before, so I dont try and re invent the wheel?

    Wild goose or farm raised goose?

    Wild.. It was a toad too.. Weighed a little over 12 pounds with 6 foot span. What honkers we have around here this year have been big.

    I find cure and cold smoke is best for wild goose. Keeps that lean sucker from becoming jerky. Stil advise a little bacon over it for the smoke.

    I put the goose breasts in a brine tonight. Water, TQ, kosher salt, brown sugar, vinager, and yoshida's (everything is just better with yoshida's)

    Plan on leaving it in the brine for 1 week. So next Sunday I am going to do a cold smoke with something light like alder. We shall see how this comes out!
