Wood Pigeons in Beer
(serves 4)

Ingredients

4 small wood pigeons
30 ml (2 tbsp) vegetable oil
25 g (1 oz) butter
450 g (1 lb) onions, skinned and sliced
45 ml (3 tbsp) plain flour
20 ml (4 tsp) french mustard
600 ml (1 pint) light ale
20 ml (4 tsp) soft brown, sugar
30 ml (2 tbsp) vinegar
142 ml (5 fl oz) carton soured cream
200 g (7 oz) can of pimientos, drained and thinly sliced
method
1. Cut the backbone from each pigeon, leaving the rest of the bird whole. Heat the oil in a large flameproof casserole. Add the butter and when frothing brown the birds lightly on all sides. Remove the birds.

2. Fry the onions until golden. Stir in the flour, mustard, ale, sugar, vinegar, salt and pepper. Bring to the boil, stirring.

3. Return the birds to the casserole. Cover tightly and cook in the oven at 170°C (325°F) mark 3 for about 2} hours, or until tender. Serve the pigeon on a heated dish. Reheat the juices with the soured cream and pimientos. Spoon over the pigeons.

What he really means is that he was dove hunting and some of the neighbor's homing pigeons happened to fly over.

Homing pigeons have a better flavor than wood pigeons.

And of course where he says cut the backbone from the pigeon he means stick your thumb down the juncture of the throat and breast and rip the breast right out of that sucker right after you shoot him and pull the head off. Otherwise known as field dressing the bird.

Then you feed the rest to the dog.

Yup... Confirmed my earlier suspicions. Carguy is from Down South...

Y'all know the difference between a Northern Zoo and a Southern Zoo? In a Northern Zoo, there's a sign outside each cage with the animal's name, habits and habitat. In the Southern Zoo, the sign also contains a RECIPE!
:rofl:

Not only that, but I've spent a fair amount of time outside the city limits.

Speaking of zoos, I'll trade you my recipe for Zebra for your recipe for Rhino. Mine always comes out tough.

You'd be surprised how close that comes to classical French methods. :lol:

I occasionally get yelled at for a rosemary garlic rabbit. I keep telling the missus the damned thing jumped onto the grill on its own accord. :mrgreen:

I've had a lot of success with deep fried garlic/caramelized onion stuffed bullfrog legs. I always preferred using topwater tackle over gigging though.
