    Im looking to freeze all my grouse and save em for one big batch. I want to blead them in salt water for 24 hrs then freeze. I figure this will draw water into them avoiding getting dry and draw out some spruce grouse taste.

    I plan to also soak them in milk during defrosting as well over night before cooking.

    Any thoughts?

    Poultry is frequently brined before freezing. VacPac them for the best quality...JJ

    CB, Not sure about spruce grouse as they are protected here. For ruffed grouse I just clean and wrap in saran wrap and vacuum seal, they are just as tasty 6-7 months down the road as they day they were shot.
