i marainade them in teryaki/pineapple marinade for a couple days. you might want to poke the goose brease with a fork so it marinades faster beacsue i normally do this with ducks instead.

If you over-cook, it will be really tough. Make sure you use a thermometer in the meat and cook until done by temp, not by looks. I don't know the proper temp off the top of my head, good cookbook recipes should specify. Also do whatever you can to tenderize it with a brine solution and/or marinade before cooking.

This website suggests 180F.

Marinate the breasts at least overnight in whatever you like to use as a marinade. Cut the breast open, but not completely in half, like a hamburger bun and put bbq sauce inside. Close it back up, wrap it in bacon, and hold it all together with toothpicks. Cook at about 350 until the bacon is cooked well.

My personal experience is that poking holes with a fork before marinating dries the meat out when cooked because all the juices run out of the holes.

Also if you can put the goose somewhere to keep it warm for 10-15 minutes after you cook it, the juices will stay in the meat much better than if you just cut into it right away. Just remember that the meat keeps cooking for a while after you remove it from the grill, so adjust accordingly.

I cut it up into about 1" sqaures and soak it in italian dressing for 2 days. Then wrap in bacon and grill until bacon is done. Best goose i've eaten so far.

Goose is delicious when you marinade it in olive oil and greek seasoning for however long you want. A couple hours is good but overnight is better, then wrap them in bacon and put them on the grill.

Soak the breast fillets in whole milk overnight. The lactic acid in the milk will do two things. It draws out the blood in the meat and it starts to break down the fibers in the meat. This works with any red meat. You will be left with a slimy pink fluid that you want to dump down the drain. Let the milk drain out of the meat and then marinate it in Paul Newman's raspberry vinaigrette dressing for about 8 hours. Cook this on the grill to no more than medium rare. Watch your meat closely. Goose goes from not quite done to shoe leather in a matter of a minute. Cut into slices and serve. It should come out like fine tender beef if done properly.

You cant lose with that method. Use toothpicks to hold the bacon on.

Punch the living crap out of the bag (while its on the counter) to tenderize the meat before putting in the fridge for a couple of hours.

Cut a sliver of fresh Jalapeno and put it in the middle of the meat and wrap one piece of the Oscar Mayer thin bacon around the meat...fasten with a toothpic. Grill to MEDIUM RARE. If you cook it any more than that throw it in the garbage cause its ruined. NEVER overcook waterfowl, thats the reason most people dont like it, cause they over cook it.

I use the leftover hollowed out jalapenos and stuff the with cream cheese and grill them too.

I know its a little late but here is what we do. BTW, all good suggestions so far. Soak the meat in salt water or ice water to draw out the excess blood. Cut the breast into "thin" pieces, lengthwise. Marinade in Italian dressing for a SHORT time. Cook on the grill on the lowest setting for as long as possible. I will leave the lid open so it cooks slower. The slower the better. Use an alum pie tim to make a "hot bath" of Italian dressing on the grill and dip the meat when you turn it. Waterfowl is best when cooked rare to medium rare otherwise it tends to get to dry.

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.
    • Borch
      Welcome to the forum.  Lots of good options already given.  Have some fun!
    • ozzie
      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish.

      Welcome TheEyesofanAngler! A ton of good bass lakes around the area.  For numbers of 2 to 4 lb bass, the eastern Todd County lakes near Burtrum and NW Morrison county are hard to beat as well.

      Good job guys!

      Have only been out a couple of times now but did get a 5.5 lb walleye my first 10 minutes out in 16 feet of water. Lots of fish in the 16-20 feet range. No jumping in the boat but catching fish on the mid lake areas. I'll be darned if I'll sit under a bridge with other boats when you can catch fish out on the lake without others boaters around.

      Any reports from Buffalo?  I would imagine that they are doing OK right out in front of the marina/beach.  Anybody?
    • DonkeyHodey
      agree with gimruis.  look to the river. Your chances of catching a 3# bass or better are exponentially better on the river.  (There's a reason SC/mississippi was chosen for the Gov's opener last year--the Mississippi around here is really a world class smallmouth fishery.)  (most river rats will tell you that you can essentially catch smallies any time of year and often as by-catch while targeting other species.)  Below the SC dam is pretty much catch and release only (all 12-20 inchers must be released) but it's quite loaded with big smallies! (and lots of good shore areas on public land)  Just be prepared to lose a few lures on snags... Frankly, If you want to stick to lakes, I think you can pretty much pick a lake in a 30 mile radius...--most produce bass in good quantity, it's just years may vary in terms of sizes.  Clearwater is good.  Consider Bass lake adjacent to it.  (...it's not just a clever name.)

      Haha!  Based on our conversation at the truck I’m going to edit that comment a teeny bit!  Cuz I know both of us had a workout.  I was still sore yesterday but it was a good sore. 😎
    • gimruis
      I like Clearwater too.  I haven't fished in in a couple years now but I used to and we caught a lot of fish out there.  The one negative was all the competition - there seemed to be a tournament almost every weekend. Another overlooked place to target smallmouth: RIVERS.  The Sauk River and the Mississippi between St Cloud and Elk River is plum full of bass and receives minimal fishing pressure (its just my opinion but rivers in general are very under fished here in MN).
