Palomas Ahumadas (a la cabrito)


In honor of mtgoat666, I thought I'd try and smoke up some of the doves I harvested over the weekend. Brine, wrap in bacon, smoke for an hour(?) at 200-220.

Brine: 1 qt water, 1/4 cup kosher salt, 1/4 cup brown sugar, teaspoon of garlic powder, onion powder (I used flaked onion), thyme, rosemary, pepper. 5 cleaned dove breasts into the brine for 6 hours:

Out of the brine:


Doves in a blanket:


Just finished in smoker, 1:15


Turned out nice medium rare:


Tasted delicious IMHO. The bacon was a bit smoky taste, but the doves were nice and tender.

John

I think you will be disappointed, I did much the same thing last year when I had a bunch of hunters out.....Did 30-40 dove breasts....still tasted like smoked liver....good luck

So that's what they meant by smoking doves! I could never get one to light up.



If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

"Could do better if he tried!" Report card comments from most of my grade school teachers. Sadly, still true!
