OMG! As most my friends, family and clients know, when Alan and I are not working we love to hunt and fish! I was fortunate to come away from the late season goose hunt with 4 geese, two specs and 2 snow geese. Snow geese are considered at the bottom of the flavor chain, but I was determined to turn them into something special. Guy on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives visited the Noble Pig just outside of Austin Texas where they make a duck pastrami. It looked so good, I pulled one of the narley Snows out of the freezer and went to work. Alan boned it out and we put together the rub. He armed the smoker with apple wood chips from the dead apple tree we cut down this winter and smoked that puppy for about 5 hours. Like I said OMG! We are taking a Sherri Radovich Rubly (Vitek Mortgage) and her husband Bill Rubly out on the Delta to hunt for Sturgeon and Stripers tomorrow – a trip they bought to benefit the SAR Scholarship Fund. Among other yummy menu items, they will be treated to that awsome smoked goose with fig jam and Gorgonzola bites!
