Hey all, I just started hunting and my buddy and I each shot a Chuckar this week. Chuckar's are medium-sized upland game birds, similar to a partridge and slightly smaller than a Pheasant. I took the advice of a guy who does a lot of game birds. Aged it 3 days, plucked it and brined it over night now I am smoking it. I left the head and neck on though I did gut it. I debated on cutting off the head first but I didn't really see any reason. I plan to cut off the head and neck after its done, but what should I do with the neck? Toss it? Should I use it for something? The guy I was following said to save the carcass and use it to make a smokey broth. THoughts?
