Hi all,

I want to smoke a goose for Christmas. Does anyone know where I can get a whole goose? Preferably reasonably local, etc.

... I'd also be interested in hearing any thoughts / recommendations on how to smoke it.

        Given how large a goose is, I would recommend a brine. I'd strongly consider a parboil; goose is very fatty. Well, very fatty, unless it's wild, in which case it is illegal to sell -- so I'm assuming a farmed goose. Besides, you want that goose fat. So maybe throw it in a roasting pan, skin slit, for 2-3 hours, on 225, then put it on the smoker?

          We split some discussion of cooking the Goose now that it has been obtained (from Univ Seafood and Poultry, according to Gmauger's post) over to Home Cooking at: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/883020

          We hope people who have (or want!) tips on preparing goose will check it out there.

            Haven't checked this year but Uwajimaya usually brings in geese from Grimaud Farms which are excellent. I ordered mine from Schlitz Farm in Iowa (free range, organic, no antibiotics) as I have once before and I highly recommend them but it's probably too late for you this year.
