We cubed them, marinated them, breaded them, and put them in the air fryer the other night. Pretty dang good!
Please tell us more about the smoked dark meat carnitas please!Smoked dark meat carnitas tacos is one of the best wild game meals I've had. Roasting wild birds has always been a disappointment so I make Yeager schnitzel similar to the recipe on the MeatEater website with the white meat.

I brined 3 birds worth of drumsticks and thighs in a brown sugar/salt brine overnight, then apple wood smoked at a pretty low temp (160-180? Can't remember for sure) for a couple hours, and finished them in a slow cooker with chicken stock until tender enough to shred with a fork. From there they went into a very hot cast iron pan with a little butter until crisp on one side, then onto a corn tortilla. The tacos had chopped spinach and cilantro, a little diced red onion, crumbled queso fresco, and homemade salsa.Please tell us more about the smoked dark meat carnitas please!
