Am planning to make snack stix using some Canada geese I luckily got. What about this approach: I plan to smoke/cook the geese first, then grind and add spices and stuff. At this point the stix are cooked and smoked. Now I'll put them in the oven to get the exact shrinkage desired, which should be way easier as on convection bake my oven is way more uniform than my little MES. Result should be perfectly smoked and shrunk stix, unless I'm failing to consider an important variable(s). Am I on the right track here? Thanks for your input!!
