Default My goose is not cooked.

Ok folks.

I bought a goose at the supermarket. It was on sale, ($1 per pound)
So I said to myself... "hmm.. I have never had goose before... WHY NOT?)

It was frozen and packaged.

Now the problem... I've never cooked one before. Heck, I've never even tasted one before.

So being a well cultured group (many of you, NOT me)
I have know doubt that some of you gals/guys have cooked one before.

So now I need some tips... I'd prefer to cook it in the WFO.

Please help redneck Dave out!

Thanks everyone,

Dave

Here's a bit of google gandering:

Recipe: An Absolutely Perfect Roast Goose!

As a side note, goose grease is considered the best shortening for pie crust. It's worth the time to render it out of your pan drippings (which will be a lot: it's a fatty bird).

Goose is VERY greasy, my suggestion is put it on a roasting rack so the bird is not sitting in the grease. Poke the skin with a fork so the grease drips out. The WFO is a perfect place to cook a goos,e this first time I cooked one in my gas oven we had a grease fiire!!!

Take photos...;enjoy

I remember my Grandmother cooking a wild goose Grandpa shot. She soaked it in milk for 3 or 4 hours to remove the gamey taste. Then roasted it on a rack in a pan. I remember that it tasted pretty good. Let us know how it comes out.

I love the taste of game - if you remove that, it will taste like everything else; chicken

My grandmother cooked them too - domestic though - and while it's been many years, I still remember how delicious they are. I've been shot down every Christmas when I suggest one, but some year ...

Anyway, pricking it all over with a fork is just what my grandmother did and if I remember right, she would drain off the fat periodically too, to reduce splattering, I think.

I can't wait to hear how it turns out!
