I picked up a couple turkeys from the local store and used some pheasants that I shot earlier in the year for my first time smoking meat. I found a brine using a quick Google search, followed the directions, and man it was awesome! I made some turkey and pheasant sandwiches for a lite dinner tonight and gave my wife, who never eats wild game, the pheasant sandwiches. :twisted:

She was like, "This is the best turkey sandwich I have ever had." I didn't have the heart to tell her it was those birds she thinks are so nasty.

I didn't know there was a difference until now- I'm still a newb. Just googled the difference between brine and cure, and you're right - they are cured. Thanks for pointing that out. I used one of the recipes found on honest-food.net

I thought they were cured given the pink color.

'brined' 'cured', who cares, as long as it tastes good.
