    Hello everyone,

    I actually think I'd brine these first.  Pheasant is a dryer meat as it is wild and would for sure inject them if not brined.  I bet wrapped in bacon these would turn out awesome.  Make sure to do a q-view.  Good luck.

    2nd the brine idea. a blanket of bacon sounds good too. but i've had phesant and i'm leary that the bacon could overpower the taste of the bird.
  4. Did you ever try this? and how did it turn out. I have a few to try also.

    I agree with Rstr Hunter & Eman.

    Only place we differ is I wouldn't worry about the Bacon overpowering the Pheasant.

    The pheasant should be so lucky. (Can't help it---I just love Bacon that much!)

    This might help you???
