Mark went goose hunting this weekend and did great. He cleaned them and cut them up before I got home (YEAH!). I hate cleaning birds.....yuck! The feathers, wrinkly skin, the tendons, it grosses me out. When we got home it was cleaned and thinly sliced and marinating in a bag in the fridge.
Mark then smoked it over the fire pit in the back yard. He chose maple wood for the smoking. It was a perfect day for it, cool, breezy and yet sunny.
This is the last piece of goose jerky, and it didn't make it in the house.
I admit I was a little grossed out when Mark first mentioned it because I do not like goose. It's fatty and greasy. I must say this jerky did not taste like goose. It tasted GOOD! Mark had a lot of people try it before telling them it was goose and everyone was shocked.
Surprisingly good. I'm hoping he gets a deer this year so we can make venison jerky with this recipe. It will be awesome!
Yum! Yum! Yum!
1st day of school to come..........stay tuned!
