    I just posted something on Sally's thread that the movie buffs on this thread might appreciate more. Someone said you can't pose chickens, and I replied:

    Bert, I'm going to have to try to cook duck like that next.

    I've plucked the breasts, and then cut the breast meat off, leaving the skin on one side. Use an oil or bacon grease in a cast iron pan on low, and put the breast skin side down and let it cook with onions for about 20-25 minutes until the fat on the breast has rendered. Then flip it and cook the other side for about 5 minutes. Should be medium-rarish in the center. Next time, I'm going to brine it first.

    For my turkey, I roasted the body, and for the thighs and drumstick I made jerky, which turned out really good.

    With deer, I try to remove all of it's fat, and then add pork fat. I feel like deer fat has kind of an unpalatable flavor.

    There's always more to learn, I'm still learning too... :) It's been hard for me to explain the respect relationship to cultivate with a rooster... it's more of something I learned instinctively... give them their boundaries, but respect them to do their job in their own space... it makes for more peace all around... I am proud of you... bantam roos are way more touchy than lf... something about that Napoleon complex... :gig :highfive:

    frmboy.......another way to cook them, I didn't suggest to Benny for obvious reasons......

    cut the breast meat from the breast, season well, place a slice of pickled jalapeno on the breast, wrap with thick pepperd bacon, and cook over a charcoal fire, that is super hot, only cook until the bacon is done.

    should be rare.

    holy smokes this is good.

    I've read a similar recipe, with people cooking them in hot cast iron dutch oven. I want to try this one as well.
