SWEET AND SOUR GOOSE LEGS
1 doz (or so) Canada Goose legs
1 can mandarin oranges
1 can pineapple tidbits
soya sauce
brown sugar OR maple syrup
white wine (or red wine, who cares?)
seasoned salt.
Trim legs, pluck off any feathers, cut away any shot-damaged meat, discard any shot (!), and give the legs a good rinse under cold water.

In a slow cooker or covered Dutch Oven/similar heavy pot, combine oranges, pineapples (with the juice in both cases), about 1/3 cup soya sauce, about 1/3 cup maple syrup OR about 3 tbsp brown sugar, about 1 cup of dry white wine, and a goodly seasoning of salt. Mix well, and add the goose legs, stirring so the legs are covered with the liquid.

Cook very slowly in the slow cooker, or on the stove top, or in the oven, for several hours. The meat is cooked when it falls off the bones easily.

Serve two to three legs per person, and spoon the marinade over steamed rice.

                          TERIYAKI GOOSE BREASTS

4 - 6 Canada Goose breasts
1 bottle low fat (or no fat) Italian salad dressing
2 tsp ground ginger
½ cup honey
½ cup soya sauce

Trim breasts, pluck off any feathers, cut away any shot-damaged meat, discard any shot, give the breasts a good rinse under cold water, and slice them thinly, length-wise, into small strips about ¼” thick.

Mix the other ingredients together to make a teriyaki marinade. Add the goose breast strips to the marinade and put it in the fridge for 24 hours or so (at least 12, up to 48 would be fine).

Heat BBQ to HOT. Place the strips across the grills, and by the time you have finished laying them out, start turning them over. By the time you have turned them all over, they are probably cooked. Total cooking time is less than 5 minutes. Serve medium rare, or AT THE MOST, medium, on warmed plates. My favourite companion dishes are basmati rice and maple-glazed baby carrots. Serves 1 to 2 persons per breast.

This is THE best red meat you will ever eat, it is absolutely every bit as good as venison or moose t-loins. FABULOUS.


3-4 grouse depending on how many you are eating. 
potatoe chips any flavour
an egg 
2 tbsp milk 
Shreaded coconut

DIRECTIONS: Mix egg and milk together in bowl,take your chips of choice and put into a ziplock bag close it up and crunch the chips into some what crumbs...cut your deboned grouse into strips or chuncks wich ever u prefer...dip the grouse into the egg and then into the chip crumbs...put on cookie sheet and bake on 450f until
cooked just right...spinkle on shreaded coconut
and enjoy!!!!


If you don't have a pressure cooker, read no further:wink: 

Anyway's this works with a nice sized (3-4lb) Bear roast, right from the freezer.
Not much to it really.
You can put the ring in the bottom of the pressure cooker, just to keep the meat up off the bottom.
1. Roast in the pot.
2. Add water just to cover the roast.
3. Add whatever spices you might like. I use soy sauce, worcestershire, garlic and a bit of onion flakes. I think I'm gonna' try some tobasco next time too, and leave out the onions. I'm betting chili powder would be good too.
4. Lid on, heat on high.
5. Once it starts rocking, reduce heat to high-medium. Let it go for 15 minutes.
6. Remove from heat, let the pressure come off naturally, and check the water level. Add water if needed, just to cover the meat.
7. Back on the stove at  #4 or #5 above, for another 15 minutes.
8. Ready to go. Jacket boiled spuds are good with this, and choy would be excellent too. Peppered Cabbage in a pinch would be kinda tasty and down-home-ish.

Baked Rabbit and or Grouse

1-3 rabbits or grouse, depending on how many eating.
Package of bacon

For rabbitts: clean rabbits, cut off the hind legs, and cover with bacon, then place covered legs inside the chest of the rabbit, and drape bacon over chest. Marinade for 4-24 hours(depending on time frame you have). Place rabbits inside pan, in oven at 350 F, for 1-1.5 hours. Remove, place on plate and eat.

For Grouse: Cover the breast with Bacon, and place in oven at 350 F for 1 hour, basting occasionally during cooking.

Venison or Moose Stroganoff


2lbs slightly frozen moose or vension steaks
3 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
1 thinly sliced large onion
2-3 cloves garlic, crushed
1-2 cups stock (beef works ok)
1\2 cup flour
salt and pepper
2 tbsp parsley
1\2 cup sour cream
1. Mix the flour with the salt and pepper along with any other seasonings. I often use onion powder, thyme or cayenne pepper.
2. Slice the meat very thin (this is why it helps to be slightly frozen) and dredge it in the seasoned flour.
3. Heat a couple tbsp oil and butter in a large skillet on about medium high. Add the dredged meat to the pan and brown it well. Remove it from the pan.
4. Add more oil and butter if needed to saute the mushrooms, garlic and onion until tender.
5. Add the meat back to the pan and pour in your stock. Allow it to simmer and thicken for about 1\2 hour on medium low heat.
6. Just before serving, add about a half cup of sour cream and heat through. I have also used a can of cream of mushroom soup and it works great too.
7. Serve over hot noodles, rice or mashed potatoes.


1 1/2 cups wild rice, divided
3 cups grouse or chicken stock
Breasts from 4 grouse, skinned with tenders removed
1/4 cup butter, divided
1/2 cup rye, barley or whole wheat flour
1 to 2 pounds fresh mushrooms (any kind)
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 cup cranberries
1/4 cup fruit syrup (see above)
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1. Salt the grouse breasts well and set aside at room temperature.
2. Simmer 1 cup wild rice in the grouse or chicken broth until tender, anywhere from 20 minutes to 50 minutes depending on whether you have real, parched wild rice or the cultivated variety. 3. When the rice is done, drain and set aside in a covered bowl.
Grind the remaining wild rice in a spice grinder into a powder; there will still be some larger bits, and this is OK. It adds some texture. Mix this with the rye flour and dredge the grouse breasts in it.
4. Heat 3 tablespoons of butter in a large saute pan and saute the grouse breasts until they are just barely done, about 4 to 5 minutes per side. Set them aside.
5. Put the remaining butter in the pan and turn the heat to high. Add all the mushrooms. Shake the pan as you do this so they don’t all stick to the bottom. If some do, that’s OK. Keep searing and shaking the pan until the mushrooms give up their water. Sprinkle them with salt and add the garlic and thyme. Let the mushrooms sear without moving the pan for 1-2 minutes: You want them to get some browning. Stir the mushrooms and repeat until you get them as browned as you want — I like them to be about halfway browned, which takes about 8 minutes.
6. Add cranberries and toss to combine. Cook until they just start popping, then add the wild rice, vinegar and fruit syrup. Toss to combine and serve with the grouse.

Deep Fried Holiday Turkey

2 cups butter
 1/4 cup onion juice
 1/4 cup garlic juice
 1/4 cup Louisiana-style hot sauce
 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons ground black pepper 
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper 
7 fluid ounces beer
 3 gallons peanut oil for frying, or as needed 
1 (12 pound) whole turkey, neck and giblets removed.
1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion juice, garlic juice, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, black pepper, cayenne pepper and beer. Mix until well blended.
2. Use a marinade injecting syringe or turkey baster with an injector tip to inject the marinade all over the turkey including the legs, back, wings, thighs and breasts. Place in a large plastic bag and marinate overnight in the refrigerator. Do not use a kitchen trash bag. If your turkey is large, you can use an oven bag.
3. When it's time to fry, measure the amount of oil needed by lowering the turkey into the fryer and filling with enough oil to cover it. Remove the turkey and set aside.
4. Heat the oil to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C). When the oil has come to temperature, lower the turkey into the hot oil slowly using the hanging device that comes with turkey deep-fryers. The turkey should be completely submerged in the oil. Cook for 36 minutes, or 3 minutes per pound of turkey. The turkey is done when the temperature in the thickest part of the thigh reaches 180 degrees F (80 degrees C). Turn off the flame and slowly remove from the oil, making sure all of the oil drains out of the cavity. Allow to rest on a serving platter for about 20 minutes before carving.

Goose Recipe:

4 large goose breasts

6 tablespoons of salt

3 containers of BBQ sauce (kraft works fine, and it's cheap)


Hamburger Buns

Make sure you get all blood clots out, and rinse thoroughly. Cut goose into 1/4" strips across the grain. Take the goose strips and let them soak overnight with the 6 tablespoons of salt. After letting it soak, pour out all the water. Continue to add water and keep rinsing the stips. The more blood you get out, the less game taste will remain.

Add the strips to a crock pot, and cover with the 3 containers of BBQ sauce. Turn the crock pot to low. Give it 4-6 hours at low heat to cook through.

That's about it! Just through the strips on a hamburger bun, cover with bbq sauce and a little mustard.

Then throw in canned tomatoes, stir and smash up, stir your pasta, turn tomato sauce on medium low, just simmer. Let them cook a bit and keep smashing them, so they get saucy. Add your grouse
strain your pasta, keep a bit of the water.

Brine a turkey for Christmas!

How to Brine and Roast a Turkey

Yield: 12

Try brining for the best tasting, juiciest holiday turkey ever! It?s a centuries old trick that the pros use. Best of all it?s very simple and it really works. Brining encourages the tightly wound proteins in meat to uncoil, bump into each other and form a web of sorts that sets with the heat of the oven and traps moisture.
How to Brine and Roast a Turkey

See Directions (below) for Ingredients as they vary depending on size of bird

How to Brine and Roast a Turkey

You will need an accurate meat thermometer to gauge exactly when the meat is done. Don’t rely on the pop-up thermometers; they are calibrated so high that they guarantee dried out meat!
For a standard 12 to 25 pound turkey you will need 2 pounds of salt, ideally sea salt and 2 cups of brown sugar. You will also need a clean picnic cooler large enough to hold the turkey when completely submerged in water.
Place the turkey, salt and sugar in the bucket. Cover with 4 gallons of cold water and submerge the turkey upside down. Turn the turkey a few times to mix the salt and sugar. Place the bucket in a cold place for four hours for a smaller turkey and as much as six hours for a larger one, no more no less. If necessary to keep the brine cold replace some of the water with a few bags of ice or even throw in some freezer packs.
Remove the turkey from the brine and rinse well under cold running water. Let rest uncovered overnight in the refrigerator. This will drain any excess moisture and help dry out the skin so it will brown better.
Rub the turkey with butter, ground pepper and your favourite herb or spice mix. Stuff the turkey with fresh herb sprigs, garlic cloves and large chopped pieces of carrot, celery and onion. Place breast side down on a clean well oiled roasting rack in a roasting pan. Add two cups of water to the pan.
Place the turkey in a preheated 400° oven. Roast one hour then, without opening the oven, turn the heat down to 250° and continue roasting for two hours longer. For a 20 to 25 lb. turkey or larger roast for three more hours. If you have a convection oven only roast for 45 minutes first before turning down the oven heat, no other adjustments are needed.
Flip the turkey breast side up and baste it thoroughly. Add two cups of water to the roasting pan. Turn the oven back up to 400° and continue roasting until the breast meat is exactly 165° and the thigh reads 170°. Baste and check the temperature every 15 minutes or so. This finishing heat will help brown the skin. Let the turkey rest covered with foil for 20 to 30 minutes before carving then serve immediately.

snow goose breasts
Chili fixin's (beans, tomato sauce, tomatoes, spices, onion, peppers, etc.)

The key to making snow geese taste good is removing all the blood from the meat.

Soak the meat for a day or two in the refregerator in a salt water mixture.

Change the water frequently.

Then take your goose meat and cube it into 1/2- to 3/4-inch cubes.

Fry in frying pan with salt and pepper. 

Take the meat and place in a crock pot.

I'm not gonna get into the chili fixin's here. We all have our own way .Just take what you usually use and throw it in the crock pot.

Cook on low for at least six hours and you will have a wonderful feast.

A side hint -- if you overdo it and your chili is too spicy, tame it down with a little brown sugar.

1 - 4 Lb. Fryer Chicken 
3/4 Can of Beer 
Greek Seasoning or Cajun Seasoning 
Vegetable Oil 
Non-stick Cooking Spray 
Rinse chicken and remove Sprinkle the chicken, inside and out, heavily with seasonings. Spray beer can with non-stick cooking spray. Put chicken on top of beer and set on grill using indirect heat for 1 hour. Rub on some vegetable oil and finish cooking until browned all over (an additional 20 - 30 minutes), AND juices run clear. Total time on the grill is about 1 1/2 hours. 
Using a 2 burner gas grill have one side burning on high and the other side not burning and put the chicken on the cold side to cook. On a charcoal grill slide the hot coals to one side and put chicken on the cold site. Enjoy!

Grouse, Shiitake Mushroom and Whiskey Cream Pasta

-Couple Grouse breasts diced
-About 2 cups Shiitake Mushrooms chopped
-some parsley chopped 
-finely chopped or crushed garlic (I use 4 fresh cloves..... add more or less depending on how much you like garlic)
-finely diced shallot
-2 Tablespoons Whiskey
-about a Table spoon of olive oil
-Table spoon spoon butter
-1cup whipping style cream
-cracked pepper and salt to taste
-a heap of your favorite pasta (I use linguini most often but any will do....)
Set a large pot to boil with some oil and salt for pasta....

Toss the olive oil, garlic, onions, butter and pepper in a seperate nonstick fry pan and cook over medium heat until the onions are 3/4.... 

Dump in your pasta into the pot with water and get er goin...

back to the pan.... add the diced grouse breast and chopped parsely into the garlic and onions and cook for a few minutes before adding the shiitake mushrooms and cook until the mushrooms are the way you like em....

Add the whiskey and simmer for a minute and then light the whole works on fire until the alcohol burns off (I use a barbecue lighter). Now stir in the cream and heat and stir until the mixture has thickened. Add salt to taste.

Your pasta that you have been monitoring should be cooked.... strain it rinse it and dump it back into the pot..... Pour the whiskey cream mixture over it and toss and serve with your favorite side dishes....

I often serve this as a side dish with a small steak, asperagus and garlic bread.... or have it for lunch on a rainy weekend....

Let me know what you think and I hope you enjoy!
