Cluck, I have a tip.

The background first:
Hunted geese for years and ruined many, WE had no idea how to cook one.
We tried baking (yuck)
We tried smoking them too. That's good but you want to let the meat cool first. The texture is strange when it's hot.
Once cooled it tastes like roast beef and is great for sammiches.

One fall I took Shorty and Bob Drake on a goose hunt. We got two but what to do with them...they kind of sat in camp until I cleaned the one I had shot. Some younger hunters saw us. They had beer and wanted to sit by our fire so why not?
They saw that other goose and asked why we're not cooking it. I asked...how? You got any ideas, I'm all ears.

One of the younger guys said to breast them, slice the meat 1/4 inch thick, grill it for two minutes per side and it will taste like beef steak. I'll be damned...the kid was right. We ate both geese that night. :yes:

You want it rare or it will taste like liver. Barbeque it using the same method and it should be really good.

Ab, thanks for the tip. I fixed the last 2 geese I shot with the BBQ recipe on the crock pot thread and it too tasted just like beef. In fact my grandson who wont eat anything wild, had three sandwiches of the BBQ goose and remarked, GP that's the best BBQ beef you've ever fixed. He wouldn't believe me when I told him it was goose, but his grandmother verified it was indeed goose.

Another way to fix it is to inject it like you do turkey and put it in a turkey fryer. Unlike a turkey, it doesn't float when its done so watch the time per pound. I fixed one that way and took it to work one time, it didn't last five minutes and I was told by several people how much it tasted like beef.

I make goose poppers along with the crock pot goose. Cut thin, marinate in garlic powder, onion powder, your favorite "all seasoning", a little splash of olive oil, and a splash of vinegar. I then slightly pre cook bacon just until edges curl. I take my meat, jalapeno, and cream cheese and wrap it in 1/2 slice of the bacon. Comes out great.

Want to cook 30-40 poppers in a flash and not burn any because you cant flip them fast enough...use one of these like I do.

Heres my recipe

3 Canada breasts

About 8 oz of untrimmed pork loin or pork chops, I think the fat on the loin helps the flavor

1/2 medium onion sliced and clove garlic minced

4 tablespoons bourbon

Enough apple cider to completely cover the meat

Tablespoon pepper

Cook on high for 2 hours, then turn down to low and cook another 6 hours

Remove the meat and pull apart with a fork It will be super tender

Throw the liquid away and either use a new liner bag or wipe out crock pot

Put pulled meat in crock pot and mix in BBQ sauce to your preference of thickness. I used Curleys but any brand will work
I buy it by the gallon

Heat in crock pot on low until its good and hot

I served mine on buns with pan fried potatoes and ranch beans

If you don't have 3 breasts just adjust the amount of pork you use, You could probably make it with out the pork, but I think the pork fat adds a little to the overall taste.
