    I did a couple of smoked turkeys for Thanksgiving and the FIL was so impressed that he wants me to do a couple of geese next month when he goes on a guided hunt.

    Should I do anything different with the brine or in the smoking process? I figure that I should treat the geese like any other poulty and not worry about it.

    I have a bag of Morton's Sugar cure that I'm planning on using for the brine or I could use my basic brine recipe-For each gal. of water used, add 8 ounces of kosher salt and 8 ounces brown sugar.

    Comments and suggestions GREATLY appreciated!!

    Hey Earl....

    This is great finally I get to give you some advice. Goose if wild tends to be very lean. I am not sure about domestic.

    The wrapping it in bacon is always a great hit with all.

    When I do goose I have resorted to making salami out of it. I like this better than I like salami made with venison. Which is saying a lot.

    As for general smoking geese in your smoker this is not an area that I am experienced in.

    Good luck

    Dutch, look for my wild goose post under the Wild Game section. It should help a lot!

    PS Domestic Geese are a bit different!
