Hello Gents!

Had a great day over an outstanding English Pointer yesterday and have a bunch of preserve birds to consume.

I am looking for a good recipe for the legs. I had a, what I believe to have been, braised, "Honey BBQ " phez leg dish. It was so damn tender and very tasty. I am hoping to recreate it. So any advice in that direction would be great.

But also looking for any suggestions you might have of your favorite way to consume Phez legs.

Thank you in advance! DD :D

Like you mention, braise them, then glaze them.

Confit is a winderful way to use legs.

Soup/stock, roast them.

If you have the feet, crispy foot soup is lovely. Or spicy feet.

There is a Lamb Shank recipe in this forum, you could use that.

I've made this african peanut stew with pheasant and sharptail legs and thighs. It was delicious.

I give a lot of my Pheasants to a retired couple here in Spearfish.  They consume every smidgen of meat on the carcass.

Gene separates the leg from the thich and boils them.

Once boiled, then cooled, he carefully pulls the foot end and removes all of the tendons from the leg.  he then chops the meat and uses it to make Pheasant Salad, like tuna salad or chicken salad.

I like it with some curry powder in the mix along with chopped celery, chopped carrots and some raisins.

I breast my gamebirds and skin the rest of the carcass. I almost always use the carcasses to make stock. However, I'm tempted by some of the leg and thigh recipes on here.

I have made some wonderful soups of the stock and the breast meat.

I save the legs/thighs until I have several pounds, then take them to the local meat market to have them wrapped in bacon and smoked. Usually costs about a buck a pound + cost of bacon. They come back wrapped 2 legs/thighs to a package. They make great tailgate food, keep a long time and taste great with your favorite beer around the campfire.

Look up any chicken cacciatore recipe. In Italian that is chicken, hunter style. Wet,slow heat, just what game thighs need.
