My garden was getting hammered so I did the vegetable=meat conversion.
I brined them first then smoked them for a couple hours. Then I pulled the meat off the bones and braised with demiglaze and wild dehydrated mushrooms/shallots.
After that i added some heavy cream and reduced. The final product was stuffed into cooked potatoe skins for a wild game feast attended.it was a big hit.
I recomend brineing first.
