    I had the chance to smoke some of the dove I've been hunting this week.
    Added some catfish I caught last time camping and some of the little buck I got last fall.

    The venison was part of a hind quarter roast...I marinaded it in a mixture of Dales marinade, beer, jalapenos, onions and garlic....



    I marinaded the catfish in a brine that nh3b had posted here earlier this year...http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/for...ad.php?t=13365
    I like the brine and will use it again.




    Used a chimichurri sauce on the dove breasts....didn't get a pic of them marinading, but here are the breasts before the marinade...



    Wrapped and ready for smoker....



    Used a bit of hickory.....



    I like yuca root cooked over a fire....





    The meal was pretty tasty....



    Dove season is still going on, so I hope to stock up on them. :)

    Hey, Jeannie!

    What species of dove are y'all hunting? In these parts we are loaded with what is known as a "mourning dove". It is a protected species under the nongame act. (I am resisting temptation here)

    Your pix are perfect and your enthusiasm for your fellow SMFers is really appreciated!

    Cheers!
