Pecan Smoked Pheasant Recipe

I smoked some pheasants last weekend and they were delicious!

So I thought I would share this recipe with you.


2 whole Pheasants skinned or with skin

1 cup Olive oil

Your favorite poultry rub



1 gallon bottled water free of chlorine and fluoride

cup sea salt

cup pure cane sugar

1 cups fresh cilantro (do not pack)

4 tbs fresh lemon basil

4 tbs fresh basil

1 tbs cayenne pepper

1 tbs paprika

4 tbs garlic chives

4 tbs chives

1 tbs ground garlic

1 tbs fresh ground black pepper


In a large pot bring water to a boil and add salt while stirring making

sure it's dissolved. Then add all brine ingredients, bring to a boil,

boil for three minutes then simmer for an additional 30 minutes.

Let cool, then refrigerate overnight.

Take two cleaned whole pheasants and place them into an air

tight container such as a zip lock bag gallon size, pour in the

brine so they are covered, then remove all air. Put them in the

fridge and let them brine for at least 4 hours.

After they've brined for 4 hours, remove them from the brine and

rinse them off with chlorine and fluoride free water, pat dry, rub

with olive oil, then use your favorite poultry rub.

Use between 4 and 6 oz Pecan wood chips.

Set temp to 220 deg. F

Smoke them until the internal temp is 170 deg. F in the thickest

part of the breast - around three hours.

Remove from smoker and let sit for 10 to 15 minutes, cut thin

slices of breast and enjoy.


I live where they put chlorine and fluoride in the water supply.

If you live in an area like this try not to use the water for brining

or any cooking, your meals will taste so much better.  Two

gallons of bottled water costs under $2.00.


Good Smokin,


Brian C.
