Naturally tender and flavorful, pheasant breasts become extra succulent when smoked and seasoned with the Wild Game Hunter's Blend. This savory blend enhances the flavor of the fowl without overpowering it. These birds are good enough to eat as is or to slice and serve on Smoked Pheasant Flatbreads.
Note: We recommend using cherry or mesquite wood when smoking pheasant.
