    We have pheasant breasts, chukker breasts and quail. I would like to smoke them all on my BGE.
    How should I brine them and how long should they smoke at 240 or so? Thanks. Frank

    I have never tryed a brine. I have done the bacon wrap and it turned out OK, but I was using a pit vice a smoker. Actually put some jalapeno between the bacon and the breast too.

    I did ruin a friends entire ice chest of cleaned pheasants from a "Braska" pheasant hunt one year. He loved my smoked chicken so "we:" assumed pheasant was the same. NOT! Can you say pheasant jerky? This friend was also a good customer, talk about your hot water.

    If you want smoked, I suggest you cold smoke and then grill the birds.
