I marinaded both in italian dressing for about two days, then sprinkled McCormich steak spices on them, and wrapped them in bacon. The goose breast I cut in halves, and the deer roast I put in a tin pan. I smoked for about 4 hours, getting both to desired temperatures before taking out. Anyway, it was a first time ever for me eating goose, and I don't like gamey flavor. I thought it was OK (edible), but not "good." Then when I ate it in subsequent days, it tasted better, as though the fridge did it some good. The deer meat was ok to pretty good too, and I must say the smoke part of the flavor was good on both meats (hickory). I have come to find that most wild game can taste ok or pretty good, but won't be as good as pork, beef or poultry. In any case, I hope to do some ribs, chicken or salmon soon. I have no regrets on getting the smoker!
