    I have an Orion smoker. Looking for recipe for smoking specks mainly, but also other fowl. What type wood and so forth, how you prepare the goose for smoking. Thanks.

    A couple of years ago I brined one in cranberry juice, sugar and salt and smoked using cherry wood. Very pink meat and skin and very tasty.

    Thanks GVOllie, anybody else. I really want to smoke these. I am going to try this recipe, but have to research smoking time with the Orion.

    Can't imagine smoking a speck-I think they're the finest eating goose that flies, but here goes: When I smoke canadas or ducks, I make a brine, then add some brown sugar and a handful of Frisco brand hot jerky seasoning. Leave the birds in the brine for 7-10 days, then put them in cold water for about an hour to lessen the saltiness.
    Dry to the touch then smoke them at about 180-200 degrees for 6-8 hours.
    Don't know anything about your smoker, but that shouldn't matter.
