Sharptail Grouse Recipe

Post by Dakotazeb » Fri Sep 09, 2022 4:00 pm

I have never cared for Sharpies when it comes to eating them. I've tried various suggested recipes and have yet to find one that makes Sharpies palatable. With the Sharptail season opening in a week I was wondering it anyone on this site might have a recipe I might try? Thanks!

I'm in a similar boat. Too dark for me. I mix one sharpie with pheasants. Burritos, tacos, Alfredo, teriyaki stir fry etc.

I like sharpies floured and fried with a side of mashed potatoes and gravy from the drippings.
I originally used this recipe for cottontails. Then when I lived in ND I started using it for sharptails, pheasant. Nowadays I do it with chukar on occasion.
I debone the breast and thighs, and crockpot them all day. They'll be tender enough to cut with a fork. I also serve them over a pile of mashed potatoes.

This one was originally a vegetarian recipe but Ive modified it by adding pulled chukar meat. I think sharpies would be good to add also.

Just like all recipes I've modified it to my liking. I used to chunk up the meat and pressure cook it. Then throw it in the chili, but the meat was kinda dry. Now I pressure cook it and pull it with a fork then put it in.

Thanks for the suggestions. Those recipes look good except that they are quite complex. I was looking for something a little easier. I see you use them also for chukar and pheasant. I have plenty of pheasant/chukar/hun recipes but since Sharpies have such a much different meat and flavor I was hoping for a recipe to make those Sharpies taste better.

I like to fillet the breast meat and cut of the legs and put them in salt water for a day and then fresh unsalted water for a day after I harvest them. I then marinade them in Yoshida's sauce and barbeque them rare. I use the same method with diving ducks like goldeneyes
