Thanksgiving and Christmas Dinner Will Impress This Year with a Hickory Chip Smoked Whole Goose Available Only from Schiltz Foods
Sisseton, SD, October 20, 2010 --( Schiltz Foods of Sisseton, South Dakota, the largest goose farmer in America, is proud to introduce a food product that is new, different and as exciting as it is flavorful. A hickory chip smoked goose is now available whole and ready to carve for this year’s holiday season. The perfect smoky flavor and fork-tender texture of this holiday goose is the result of a technique developed over several years by Schiltz Foods, Inc., its exclusive distributor. The goose is delicious regardless of the serving temperature: ready-to-eat from the refrigerator, served at room temperature, or, the preferred method for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner, warm from the oven.

The rich dark goose meat takes on the hickory smoked flavor beautifully. It is tender and succulent any way you slice it, and it complements practically anything that accompanies it. Try it with chutney. The hickory chip smoked goose makes a wonderful entrée to a meal, a completely different kind of hors d’oeuvre, or even slice it for sandwiches. Because the goose is fully cooked, the fat has already been discharged so there are only traces underneath the skin.

The whole smoked goose ranges in size from 6-lbs. to 10-lbs. The cost is approximately $7 per pound and is shipped in ice directly from the Schiltz Farm in South Dakota. Shipping is additional.

The Schiltz Farm hickory chip smoked whole Goose is available exclusively through the Schiltz Farm website:

Heating the Whole Goose
Thaw if frozen. Remove goose from wrapping. Do not remove the tie-backs on the legs. Place the goose on a flat pan or roasting pan without a rack, and heat at 350-degrees for one hour. Carve as you would any whole fowl.
