i am thinking of roasting a goose. steam it first?
i got a bug up my ass to go "old school" and roast up a goose.
what is the deal? i know there will be tons of fat to render. i googled a few recipes and it seems like some folks steam it first above water to let the fat render.
cant i just roast it above a water bath to catch the grease and prevent a fire?
who's dun it? any tips? is it any good?
I have "steamed" a goose. Pretty much I put quite a bit of water in the bottom of a roaster (old style, not electric). The amount of fat in the bird is a ton more than what is in a turkey and chicken. It would take you 5x longer to roast the bird. I liked it very much, am thinking of doing it this year too.
