I was wondering if any of you have brined a pheasant or wild duck. Wild duck can be dry if you don't cook it right. Just wondering.[p]spoof

    spoofer, Only wild geese and turkey, but IMO, any fowl can be improved via the brining. Try it and let us know! There may be some advantages of the additives to the brine per species. Others may know for sure..

    u have brined and smoked a wild goose? Hmmmm...that gives me an idea.
    The next time i see a flock fly over my home destined for da' South, i will throw a rock to knock one down, then brine 'dat baby, then low and slow it.

    Smokin' Todd, Ya, a buddy dropped off two fresh still kickin geese that I had to hurry and defeather. Boy did I have the ground covered. I wanted em whole for a first time. (less cavity parts) Brined em for about 36 hours and then did em at 300 degrees just like a turkey. They were great! C~W[p]
