Alright i just keep on confessing to you guys. I'm new at smoking, i just ruined 38 lbs of summer sausage, Bologna and deer sticks as noted in another post. now I have to tell I also over smoked or dried out (4) pheasants at the same smoking. they were naked - no skin. how do i rekindle the birds, you know make them juicy again. Here's what i did. shot the birds but didn't clean them, the outfitter took them to a person who cleaned all the birds. yes i was on a sponcered hunt, there was 20 of us, we shot 120 birds in 2 days It wasn't my fault they were skinned, but that another story. I rubbed them down with Morton and placed them in bags, flipping them around for a couple days. rinsed them down real well and rubbed them down with a shot or two of tarriaukie sauce (Japanese something), black pepper, dash of garlic salt and sprinkle of Lowery's. set them on the racks in the smoker. smoked them and smoke them, yep they dehydrated they look beautiful but the dried out. how do i rejuvenate the moisture, I know tere wasn't any skin to hold in the moisture. WoW do i feel bad. Two of the birds belong to a friend. what to do?
