    My in-laws went hunting and got a mess off pheasants. We're thinking about smoking for Easter dinner.any body got any good recipes for doing so? From what I've read you want to do a brine but idn. Any help would be appreciated

  2. Hi there!

    I love pheasant cacciatore! A simple idea but also healthful and great if you like that kind of thing.

    (You can smoke or grill or roast your pheasant and/or just cook it right in your cacciatore sauce even but either way, it's just lovely)!

    Cheers! - Leah

    Make sure you brine it and don't overcook it. I haven't smoked one, but I've roasted, grilled and stewed quite a few. My favorite I've done was a miniature turducken made of a pheasant stuffed with a Chuckar (smaller game bird, type of partridge). It was surprisingly easy and tasty.

    I called it a "little phuckar", but I guess it's not nice to say that in polite company. The bacon wrapping helps too.

    Good luck with the pheasant Bubba Mcnabb! I'm sure whatever you do, it will be delicious!
