Smoking Duck and Goose

Postby Grebe Slayer » Thu Jan 19, 2012 7:52 am

Anyone have any experience smoking their duck or goose. I just got a propane smoker and plan on doing a little experimenting. Just wondering if anyone has any tips on smoke chip flavors, rubs, or brines?

I do a lot of speck hunting and smoke them quite often. I inject the birds with Cajun injector creole butter and put kosher salt and black pepper on the outside, then rub them with cane syrup ( I use steins can syrup). Sometimes I will also put clover garlic chunks in the breast of the bird. Cut an onion in half and put it in the water along with some worstechier( however you spell it) in the water also. Smoke at 250. Occasionally add whatever wood chips you want. This is the best recipe I have found. Hope that helps a little!

I almost always brine mine before a smoke...and I prefer Pecan, Maple, Apple and White Oak or a combination. :thumbsup:

This blog post was from a few weeks ago. I had been wondering the same thing. I haven't tried this yet, but I have tried a bunch of other recipes and methods from the site.
