    I just picked up a new Traeger grill and so far I love it, I made some ribs that were excellent last night and I would really love to get to cooking some wild goodness on it. Anybody use their Traeger's to cook up geese or ducks and if so what is your favorite recipe?

    I have Green Mountain Grill, love it as well.
    I just made some duck kabobs for Christmas.
    Soak duck over night in a 1:1 mixture of Italian dressing and Buttermilk.
    Cut in to strips and wrap in Bacon with a Jalape?o and thread on to bamboo skewers soaked in water. Get the grill as hot as you can and grill for 2-3 min.

    I love deer tenderloin with a Jamacan Jerk dry rub too.

    Hell no!
    Dry rub and grill to medium rare. Grilled asparagus, crusty French bread and a nice Zinfandel.

    I like to sear my duck breasts on something hotter than my Traeger, but I make almost all of my goose meat into jerky now on my Traeger using High Mountain Cracked Pepper and Garlic Jerky Cure and Seasoning.

    Started this last year. It's now a request all the time.

    I pick the goose breasts then cit the out whole.

    I soak in salt water x 24 hours to clean.

    Then brine for 3 days in brown sugar/salt mix.

    Dry as much as possible.

    Wrap in paper towels overnight.

    Low smoke to 140-150 degrees.

    Dipping sause dijon mustard,mayo, worchester sause,and horseraddish .

    Duck breasts, soak in Dales sauce x 20 min.

    Bring temp to 400 degrees.

    5 min. per side (Med Rare) Woodducks .

    We have a Rec-Tec same thing.

    Traeger goose and duck jerky is pretty damn good. I get requests from people at work to bring it in.
