Brined the birds for a couple of hours. Didn't really notice any difference in taste, moisture or texture.

    Boiled in some spices 'till soft. Cooled a bit. Flattened with a spatula. poured some olive oil in the foil, place in the taters, and added some more evoo and some salt. Cooked for a while with the dove.

    We used to race picking the birds when I was a kid. Picked them INDOORS in the den. Mom could pick a dove, including the wings, in under a minute. Unreal. I'm about 2 minutes a bird with no feathers-a-flying. Don't like the wings though.

    My FAVORITE part of the dove is the leg and thigh. You can have the breast.

  • I am gonna have to try the legs and thigh...
