I'm thinking of roasting a goose (actually, 2 geese) this year instead of turkey for Thanksgiving. I've done some research online and on my cookbook shelf but am not finding any recipes that are really calling to me - they either seem waaaay too involved (eg, parboil then air dry the goose updide down for 24 hours) or uninspired, flavor-wise). I've never made goose before so I could use some guidance - either with some recommendations for foolproof recipes or general goose-prep techniques or maybe even someone to tell me it isn't worth the hassle.
My local butcher says they need to order the geese by Monday, so I need to decide soon whether to go on this "wild goose chase" or stick with the noble turkey this year.
