I just got a Bradley original for Christmas and am going to smoke some wild pheasants and goose breasts later this week for the maiden voyage. I have done a few pheasants on a Weber grill in the past and they turned out great. I am eager to try the smoker and see if it simplifies the process. I have not smoked goose but have done lots of jerky so we will see. I soak the birds in a brine (recipe later) overnight and then lay bacon on the breasts to add fat and moisture. I will try and get some pictures and let everyone know how the birds turn out. Wish me luck.
