Has anyone ever smoked a goose? I bought one yesterday on special. Almost giving them away. I have never cooked or smoked a goose. Any ideas, I know the will be a lot of fat.

I got the goose at Safeway. They were marked down from $6.99 to $1.99 a pound. I butcher said they just were not selling. I'm going to smoke it like I've done ducks. It will be a couple of weeks, but I'll send pics when I'm done.
I'm holding you to that!

Well, the goose is cooked. I brined it for about 15 hours and smoked it for about 5 hours on a very low heat. I put drip pans under the rack that the goose sat on, I got about a pint of goose fat. I'm not sure what I'll do with it. Here are the pics. The goose meat is very dark, goose only has dark meat. The taste is good, but different. I've never had goose so I'm not sure what it should taste like. I used apple and alder wood chips.
Winner, winner goose dinner. Well the smoked goose was good, but the goose pate is super. I took one breast, the liver, heart, gizzard and all the meat I could get off the goose. Ran it through the meat grinder twice with caramelized onions and some spices. It's great.

A friend who is a goose hunting addict breasts his geese then has them cured and smoked like Canadian bacon. Fabulous!! He's promised me 25 pounds to do in my smoker this season. Hopefully I'll have some Q-Views soon.
