    We went out and shot some geese on Saturday and I decided to take a couple breast halves, brine them and smoke them over cherry wood.
    The brine was:
    1/2 gal water
    1/2 cup salt
    1/3 cup brown sugar
    2 tbsp onion powder
    2 tbsp garlic powder
    1 tbsp mustard powder
    And some green onions.

    Once out of the brine (5 hrs) I washed and patted the meat dry. I then applied EVOO and SPOG (equal parts of all 4 on the SPOG). I then smoked them at 225-235 for 4 hrs until they hit 150-155. Pics to follow because my phone won't post too big of a post.

    Out of the brine covered in SPOG.
    Out of the smoke!
    Close up of a slice. Cooked to about medium but looks really rare in the pic, not sure why. Some of the best goose I have had! Highly recommend for anyone! Thanks for looking!

    Thank ya! We usually marinate, wrap in bacon and grill or cube it, roll in flower and fry but thought I'd try something new. Paid off pretty well!

  5. So beautiful! I love the color! Cheers! - Leah
  6. Got the shotgun leanin' by the door, in case one flies over!!   That looks fantastic, I love Canada goose breasts. I'm surprised it took 4 hours to get to temp, but who cares- more time for beer & such.

    Happy smokin & shootin!

    Thank you very much Disco! I liked the way it turned out! The only problem with it was we did not do more of them hah!

  17. Never watched Rachel Ray's shows? Lol. EVOO = Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
  18. Thanks whataMESs.  LOL. 

    Never seen that show, prob don't even get it here in Scotland. I'll have a look on the web and see if I can find any of them.  Every days a school day on here lol.

    A couple firsts today. 

    First time ever ate or smoked goose today.

    I used the recipe at the start of this thread and it came out great. Some goose hunters vouched for the tastiness. 

    It looks like I may be getting more goose.

    Looks good. Started smoking goose breast myself about a year ago. Beats the heck out of always making jerky. Just got done trying it in summer sausage (trail bologna) today.
