    My favorite is smoked pheasant.

    A friend does his by putting in a crock pot with a can of cream of mushroom soup and cooking till tender then serves with good mashed potatoes or served atop home made noodles. That too was very good!

    Fried:
    Melt a stick of butter in a frying pan, add a bottle of hot sauce to the butter.
    Cut pheasant breast in srtips, flour and fry.


    Kabobs:
    Cut pheasant in bite sized chunks.
    Add a piece of pheasant than a piece of bacon to kabob. Add button mushrooms, green peppers, onions, ect. what ever you like. Just make sure each piece of meat you add to put a piece of bacon on next.
    Now coat the entire kabob in ranch dressing and marinate for a hour or so.
    Now place on bbq and grill until done.
    Works great with any wild game.

    If you have field dressed breasts, i.e. ripped breasts and no skin and the rest of the body tossed, then marinate breasts in salt and sugar for a half day in the frig. Rinse and do in a George Foreman. Just takes minutes.

    Can do the kabob route or pan fry, but get some moisture into the meat.

    Whole bird. Start a roasting chicken, then after awhile put in the pheasant that has been marinated (soaked) in salt water and sugar if you want along side it. Baste the chicken fat on the pheasant and toast to the color you like.

    Get A Cook Book :smile2:
    You can Bake them like a duck you know the old apple and fruit stuffed in side. Cook it on a rack on its back half done then finish with the breast down.
    You can Also smoke them in a smoker like a brisket.
