Question Snow Goose meat

Going on a conservation hunt in a couple weeks in Stuttgart. How does the meat on a snow goose compare to a Canadian?

I’ve never been a cannibal, but snow goose can make pretty good sausage.

I've only had snow goose once, but didn't taste any difference. I will say, I've already almost cleaned out my freezer of goose this year. Everything people have said negative of goose was just flat out wrong. it was delicious. We have absolutely enjoyed it.

I make jerky out of mine. Enough marinade and smoke and you can’t tell what it is.

Filet the breasts and cut them into strips. Soak them in milk or buttermilk overnight, then marinate in your favorite marinade for a few hours. Take the strips, place it on a half jalapeno pepper with a spread of cream cheese in it. Wrap it in bacon like you would dove, and grill till done. Voila! People who say they don't like duck or geese will eat these poppers up!!!

Well, hell yeah. If you put enough jalapeno, cream cheese and especially bacon with an pickled *****hole, people will eat it up.

I’ve never eaten geese, but a friend of mine took several clients goose hunting and arranged to have them smoked and delivered to the clients. The processor’s business caught fire and burned down, destroying all the geese. My friend was glad ! True story.

IMO, Speckelbelly the best, canada second, snow third in taste. The later in the year, snow geese switch over to oats/grasses before they head back north and they don't taste as good as they were earlier in the season.
Like anything else, soaking in milk will help.

Oh man. So many possibilities to joke here. I‘ll just be honest.

1. It’s Canada goose.
2. Both are trash.
3. Mix enough pork and fat, anything makes decent sausage.

Bob's, Papas, RC, I've eaten at em all. I know plenty well what a good steak taste like.
The fact that you've never eaten it prepared right, obviously makes your opinion the end all be all to the discussion . And of course you know exactly how this tasted because some 10 you were banging cooked it and it taste like sh$+ : I suppose....
I've had tons of goose over the yrs that was some straight up nasty meat. Most times unless it was marinated for fajitas or something I wouldn't touch it. This was nothing like that.
Using citrus juice to break it down, was one of the main players in it turning out the way it did.

Told y’all. She has to be a 10 or she’s reading his posts about her cooking.

To compare a good steak to a migratory goose, is well, dang I don’t even have the words.

Last year we took 40 lbs of goose, duck, and sandhill breasts and made hunter sticks from them

This I agree with. Mix with pork, fat, seasoning and smoke it, makes fine sausage.

Some here will lead you to believe Wagyu is a mediocre replacement for snow goose.

Good Lord Y’all some picky eaters!

Filet the breast, pound it lightly, soak in Italian dressing and jalapeño juice for a couple hours, season, lay 1/2 jalapeño on breast filet and wrap in bacon, grill over HOT coals until bacon is done.

I have never had left overs no matter who was here.

I want to reiterate, if you have to wrap it in bacon to be able to eat it, then it isn’t palatable. Y’all crack me up talking about how good goose is and then go on to talk about what all you go thru to hide the taste.

I have to say, this has been a very entertaining thread. I would have said the same about ducks and geese until I ate some recently. Brought a couple ducks home, soaked them in saltwater for a couple days. Little seasoning and cooked to medium rare and they were absolutely amazing. My kids were fighting over the last pieces vs. the backstrap that was on the table.

Y’all keep it coming, this is good humor.

Soak in jalapeño juice, cover in jalapeño, then soak more in Italian dressing, then wrap in bacon, soak in bacon fat then grill. Better than steak.
