Thanks TNJAKE! It is a really great way to eat a goose breast. I've been making it for many years. I like Hank Shaw's recipe for the cure mix. I'll post a finish pic. when they are done.

Fine looking piece of work, I never scored enough honkers for a cook like that, Like. Got loads of snow geese, usually gave them away, flying carp. RAY

Thanks jcam....It is real good. The cure really works wonders on the flavor profile of goose breast meat. And it is authentic!! Romanian jews used goose to make pastrami way back when...so it's kosher too....

Very nice. If all goes well I might have to give a try on a wild turkey.
This one might be a little rubbery though
Thanks!
I've never made wild turkey pastrami. The breast meat does not have a lot of myoglobin so will not cure very dark. I have made Tasso with turkey thighs though and that is awesome!
