No Rub Christmas Goose

No Rub Christmas Goose

12 lb goose
Preparation time 15 minutes
Marinade time 3 days
Cook time 8 hours
Temperature 250
Thermometer probe 180 degrees

This marinade for your goose will provide 41/2 cups and will take about 15 minutes to prepare.

You will need:-
• 2 1/2 tablespoons salt
• ¼ cup of sunflower oil
• 1 ¾ cups or chopped onions
• 1 cup or red grape juice
• ¾ cup or sweet sherry
• ¼ cup honey
• 4 cloves garlic crushed
• ¼ cup soy sauce
• 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
• 1 teaspoon thyme
• 1 teaspoons rosemary

Mix all the ingredients for the marinade and adjust salt and other ingredients if your goose is smaller or larger than around 12 lbs. Cover the whole bird inside and out with the marinade and then marinate for 3 days. Using a plastic bag allows you to turn the goose twice a day.
After 3 days, put your goose on a roasting rack, turning it every half hour for a few hours to dry. Your goose is now ready to smoke.
Cook your goose on your smoker at 250 degrees until your thermometer probe reads 180 degrees, approximately 8 hours.
Your goose will cook best if you have a pan of water underneath as it smokes.
Let your goose rest at least 15 minutes before serving
