Roast and Chops

Every cook has a favourite way of preparing a roast or making chops. If your family prefers their

meat well done, then you better stay with pot roast, since venison roast are tender and juicy when

done medium-rare. In boiling wild game meat, you must add a fat or butter to the meat, so it does
not dry-out. Wild game meat is most delectable with a touch and addition of herbs and spices.

To make an A-1 Steak Sauce, takes only 6 to 10 minutes on the barbecue.

Wild Mushrooms Cream Of Mushroom Soup

I am always finding great Wild Mushrooms out in the woods and at home, And I have made several pots

of soup using the mushrooms I have picked. If you use wild mushrooms, make sure they are the eatable

ones. Best way to tell if your mushrooms are safe, they should have worms inside the mushroom's stem

and head. Check out your mushrooms with an expert in this field if you are not sure.

1) Half a cup of butter

2) Half cup of white flour

3) One Good Size onion, finely chopped up

4) 2 to 3 cups of Fresh Mushrooms chopped up to ones choice

5) 4 cups of Chicken broth or stock

6) 4 cups of half and half light cream

7) Approx. one quarter cup of red fortified wine.........(Optional)

8) Salt and Pepper to taste

9) Bannana Pepper chopped up fine...............(Optional)

10) Chopped up parsley or basil to taste...........(Optional)

You will Need to Wash your Wild Mushrooms in water until there is no more Dark color liquid mixer

coming from the wild mushrooms and water. After flushing until no dark color water, wash the mushrooms

in vinager for a minute or so, and then flush with water and let all excessive solution drop off the wild

mushrooms before cooking the mushrooms in butter.

Cooking Information

Melt butter in soup pot on medium low heat. Add Onion and salt. Saute chopped onions until they are soft. Add Mushrooms, and cook for about 5 minutes. Add flour, small quantities at a time, stirring the pot as you get rid

of all lumps. Add broth a bit at a time, stirring it in as you do to help prevent more lumps. Bring to a Boil,

Reduce Heat to simmer for about 5 minutes or so. This will allow the mixer in the pot to thicken the soup base.

Add Cream, Pepper, Basil, Parsley, Bannana Pepper, Gently stirring as the soup simmers without boiling.

Allow 10 minutes to allow the flavor to soak into the mushrooms.

Add Fortified wine........optional................and Serve.

Hoover Sauce. The best way I can describe it is a perfect mix between soy sauce and teriyaki glaze,

but with a little something extra special in the mix. As a Yankee, I’d never seen nor heard of this

Southern staple. According to Dixie, it was created by a native Chinese man named Hoover Lee.

His family emigrated from China to Mississippi in the early 1900s and started a general store, Lee Hong Co.,

where Lee started selling his Hoover Sauce in the early 1980s. Since then, it has blown up as a favorite

marinade among waterfowlers along the Mississippi Delta.

Prepare grilled snow goose properly and it can turn out tastier than a restaurant beef steak.

Toss some snow goose breasts (and/or legs) in a sealed container, submerge them in Hoover Sauce and let it

work its magic overnight. Fire up a wood pellet grill or your old Weber with some lump hardwood charcoal,

add your choice of seasonings to the geese, cook them to medium rare and serve. If desired, you can use more

Hoover as a glaze or dipping sauce. Try this once and you’ll be downright offended the next time someone

says you can’t eat snow geese.


Hoover’s Chicken Drummettes

Start to finish: 40 minutes


3 pounds chicken wings

2 cups Hoover Sauce(or similar sweet-salty marinade)

2 cups cold water

1 cup ketchup

1 teaspoon yellow mustard powder (more or less to taste)

Vegetable oil

Place the chicken wings in a large stockpot. Add the Hoover Sauce or other marinade and cold water.

If the liquid doesn’t completely cover the chicken, add more water. Bring the chicken to a boil, then

reduce heat and simmer 12 minutes. Remove the chicken, drain well and discard the liquid.

While the chicken simmers, make the dipping sauce. In a small bowl, whisk together the ketchup and mustard powder.

Set aside. In a large, deep skillet, heat 1 inch of oil over medium heat until it reaches about 350 degrees.

Carefully add the chicken in a single layer (you may need to cook in batches) and fry until just starting

to brown, turning for even cooking, about 4 minutes.

Remove the chicken and drain on paper towels. Serve with dipping sauce.

~Duck Gumbo~

2 medium to large ducks

1 cup margarine

3/4 cup flour

3 chopped garlic cloves

4 celery stalks

3 chopped onions

1 chopped green pepper

1 chopped tomato

1 pound sliced okra (sauté first in separate skillet)

1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon oregano

1 tablespoon salt

3 slices bacon (cooked, chopped)

1 tablespoon pepper

1/4 teaspoon red pepper

1 bay leaf

1/2 teaspoon thyme

1/2 teaspoon rosemary

Clean and skin ducks, then in a large pot cover with water and simmer for an hour or so until the

meat is tender. Remove the duck, bone it, and save two quarts of duck broth in the pot.

Melt margarine over medium heat in a large, deep skillet (cast iron is best). Add flour, stirring

constantly until it becomes dark brown, which is a caramel-colored roux—this should take about 15 minutes.

Next add all vegetables, and garlic, stirring for five minutes.

Add the roux and vegetables to the pot holding duck broth, add duck meat and all seasonings.

Cook over low heat for two hours. Serve over rice, wild or Spanish preferred.


Perch-Walleye-Whitefish Balls


One Pound Of Perch Fillets or white color meat
1 tablespoon and 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar
2 slices of bread
1/2 of a white onion
Handful of parsley
Handful of cilantro
2 eggs
3 gloves of garlic

Place all the ingredients in a food processor and combine into a paste. Using wet hands, form balls with the

fish mixture and set on a plate. Chill the balls in the fridge for a couple of hours until you’re ready to cook.

2 cups salsa verde
2 cups fish stock (or vegetable stock if you don’t have fish stock)
½ cup roasted sunflower seeds

Place the sunflower seeds, salsa verde, and stock in a blender and puree. Add the sauce to a deep pan and heat

over medium heat until simmering. Add the fish balls and cook for 10 minutes until the balls are set. Season with

salt and pepper and serve with rice.



Blackened Seasoning Ingredients
(covers approx. 1 pound fish)
1 teaspoon oregano, ground allspice, ground cayenne pepper, ground white pepper, fine ground coffee
3 teaspoons smoked paprika
2 teaspoon dried minced onions, garlic salt, dried thyme leaves, granulated sugar

First of all, this is an excellent recipe for authentic shore lunch —cooked outside—because it’s … well …

smoky. If you’re inside, use your stove hood or open the windows and flip on a fan or three before you fire it up.

Heat a cast-iron skillet to medium-high. It’s probably ready when the skillet starts to let off some smoke.

(It might take one blackening session to dial-in the perfect heat setting on your cooking surface; when you do,

mark it for future reference.) Melt enough butter in a bowl to coat all your fish, plus extra for a later step.

Soak cold fish pieces in butter, and then dredge each piece thoroughly in the blackened seasoning.

For dredging, I recommend spreading the seasoning out across a large flat surface (such as a sheet pan),

because you’ll get a much more even coating of the seasoning vs. doing it in a bowl. Add seasoned fish

pieces to the hot skillet and immediately pour more about a tablespoon of melted butter over each piece.

Cook on the first side for approximately 1.5-2 minutes depending on thickness, flip and pour more butter

over the fish, and finish with another 1.5-2 minutes of heat. (Don’t ever touch the fish or move it around the pan!)

This is one of the few times you can get away with “burning” your food, but I promise the finished

result will taste blessed, not burnt. Boom. Blackened. Eat.

Tempura Fish Recipe

A simple Japanese tempura recipe also makes for a great shore lunch fry.

Mix one egg, a half-cup of ice water and three-quarters of a cup of self-rising flour (flour with baking soda

and baking powder added) until the ingredients are blended but the batter is still lumpy.

Forget bread crumbs or corn meal. Keep this batter in a container on ice in the cooler until

you're ready and pop it back in occasionally as you cook. This recipe produces a puffy golden

crust around the fish. Cook In Olive Oil or Sunflower Oil


Memphis Style Char-Smoked Pork Ribs Recipe


2 racks pork spare back
2 - 3 tbs brown sugar
1 tbs paprika
1 tbs black pepper
1 tbs salt
1 teas garlic salt
½ teas cayenne pepper
½ teas cumin
½ teas onion powder
½ teas chili powder
¼ teas ground mustard
Apple Cider Vinegar
Other Needs: Wood chunks Charcoal


Mix the brown sugar, paprika, black pepper, salt, garlic salt, cayenne pepper, cumin

onion powder, chili powder, and ground mustard in a large bowl. Add one tablespoon more

brown sugar if you prefer a sweeter rib. Remove one heaping tablespoon to be used later and

set the rest aside. Trim the thin membrane from the back of the pork ribs using a sharp knife

and a good grip with a hand wrapped in a kitchen towel. (Always remember to move the knife

away from your body when trimming.) After a few initial swipes, the membrane will pull off

the back with a little tug and help from a paring or boning knife. When the membrane has been

removed, cut the racks in half at the middle rib. Season all sides liberally with the spice mix, wrap

and refrigerate for 8 to 12 hours before smoking. When ready to cook, arrange heated coals in

your Char-Broil Grill for indirect heat with a drip pan positioned below where the ribs will be

Clean and oil your grate. Allow the grill to preheat to 250 degrees. Throw a few chunks of lump

hardwood on the smoker over the hot coals to create a delicious smoked flavor and arrange the

racks of ribs over the drip pan. Cover and smoke for about 1 hour, watching to make sure the temp holds.
At an hour, using heat proof gloves, remove the grate and add about 10 hour and a half, keeping an eye

on the temperature of the grill and adjusting the air vents as needed. Baste the ribs once or twice more

while cooking. When things are looking good, baste the ribs one more time, sprinkle that tablespoon of

spice mix you set aside over the meaty side of the ribs and cover and let the spices melt in. Pull the ribs

off when the meat is fork tender and has pulled back from the bones. For a memorable side that is sure

Beer Can Chicken-Upland-Turkey Recipe

Brine with beer – 12 hours before the big barbeque, dunk your chicken in a chilled bath of water, beer,

salt and sugar. This trusty method allows you to impart an additional layer of flavor while helping the

chicken remain moist and juicy throughout the cooking process.

Allow the chicken to return near room temperature prior to grilling or smoking – This strategy will

mitigate the risks of extended cooking times and likelihood of drying out the chicken’s white meat before

the darker meat is elevated to appropriate temperature. If concerned about food-borne illness

after rubbing the chicken in herbs and spices, fit the bird over the beer can and seal entirely in plastic

wrap. Remove the wrap prior to smoking. Before jamming an ice cold beer up the bird’s rear

Open that can of brewski and pour all of the contents into a small pot. Place the pot over medium

heat and bring the liquid just to the point of boil. Remove immediately from the heat and with

express caution, pour the heated beer back into the empty can, filling half way. Then stuff the chicken.

This pitmaster trick allows the beer to more quickly elevate to the temperature required to “steam”

the chicken from the inside out during the cooking process. Employ smoke – The recipe below is unique

in that it leverages an air-tight smoking appliance to cook the chicken, as opposed to an outdoor grill.

Whether indirect grilling or cooking in a traditional smoker, the essence of hardwoods intensifies the

effects of the brine, dry rub and flavor imparted by a steaming beer in the chicken’s cavity. And, as

you know, everything is just a bit tastier with smoke – beer can chicken is no exception.

Last, but not least, allow the chicken to rest before carving for 3-5 minutes per pound. This cooldown

period allows denatured proteins within the chicken to reconstitute and absorb the juices that have been

flushed out to the outer layers of muscle. After 10-15 minutes of rest, slice against the grain and serve

immediately. Bonus Recommendation – Experiment! Tweak (not tw erk) and twist the recipe.

Try variations of herbs to the brine, mixing up the dry rub and seasoning applied to the bird,

alternating the type of hardwood and fruitwoods, and / or your beer of choice.

All great ways to make this recipe your very own.


8 cups water
1 cup kosher salt
¾ cup brown sugar
Herbs – fresh basil, sprigs of rosemary, sage and thyme, plus additional for stuffing
4 12oz cans of beer (or non-alcoholic beer), plus 1 additional beer
1 4-5 pound whole chicken, thawed, trimmed and giblets removed
Olive oil, plus additional for basting
1 tablespoon garlic powder
Kosher salt and fresh ground black peppercorn, to taste
1 lemon, quartered
4 cups mesquite wood, or your favorite alternate hardwood


In a large pot bring water, salt and sugar to a boil. Remove from burner, toss in a few handfuls of herbs,

and allow the water to cool entirely (to room temperature). Immerse chicken in the cooled water,

pour in beer, cover and refrigerate for 8-24 hours.Remove chicken from brine, rinse under cold water

and pat dry with paper towel. Discard brine. Place chicken back in the refrigerator for 1 hour,

uncovered, to further dry the skin. 45 minutes prior to smoking, remove chicken from refrigerator

and rest on the counter to begin returning to room temperature. Drizzle the chicken with olive oil

inside and out, then massage a liberal degree of garlic powder, salt and peppercorn into all portions

of the chicken. Open a beer, drink (or discard) ½ the contents, then slide the whole chicken onto the

beer can. Finally, loosely stuff the upper end of the cavity with lemon and fresh herbs.
20 minutes prior to smoking, load smoker with wood chips and preheat to 275F.
Simply place the chicken over the middle rack of the smoker – balancing the bird upon the beer can

and it’s 2 legs. Slowly roast the chicken for 3 hours, lightly basting every 30 minutes with olive oil, or

until the internal temperature of the dark thigh meat reaches 165F and juices run clear.
Carefully remove the chicken from the smoker (attentive to the scolding metal beer can) and transfer

to a cutting board. Tent with tin foil and rest for 10 minutes before discarding the beer, lemon and

herbs. Carve, season additionally to taste, and serve.
