    Last fall at the end of October I shot a swan. Yes it is totally legal. This past weekend I smoked the drumsticks and the breasts I just done in a crock pot with Lipton Onion soup mix. The drumsticks were wrapped with bacon so it wouldn't dry out.



    The breasts cooked on high for about 8-9 hours. They were so tender they could be pulled apart with a fork.



    Done this way the end result tastes just like roast beef.

    Thank you! I'm hoping to try smoking some snow goose this year. Spring season is open in ND but it's still too cold and the birds have not made it up this way yet. When they do I'm hoping to down a few.

    Never thought about smoking a swan! Looks great. Maybe try a seagull next?[​IMG] That flock of Sandhill cranes Jeanie saw got diverted over my way last week but they're still on the way to your part of the country.
