Goose breast internal temp

Mon Dec 26, 2016 11:21 am

Any one else here eat there goose breast around 145? I have always ate my goose breasts at 145. However everyone tells me it needs to be cooked to 160 like chicken? It just seems like everytime I cook it much more than 145 it gets really gamey and taste like $h!t. Just curious what everyone else does?

Sous Vide the goose breasts to 135*....

the long cooking time will pasteurize the meat making it safe to eat. It will also be amazingly tender with minimal gamey flavor.

132~135* if you sous vide them first then hot and fast on the grill. If you are doing sous vide first, then 135~140*; could go to 145* but rememebr the temp will rise 5* when you pull them off a hot grill.

No need to cook to 160*F, believe it or not, waterfowl are cleaner than poultry raised in a coop. Close quarters breeds disease.

I pull off the grill at 137, rests to just over 140 and is just how I like it!
