Pheasant is often over looked nowadays. This game fowl has a unique flavor that is perfect on the grill. What
you have to remember is that Pheasant, like most game, has a low fat content and can dry out quickly. This is
why many pheasant recipes call for larding. Larding is a cooking process where you add fat to the meat to
keep it moist and flavorful. Regardless of how you cook pheasant it has a wonderful flavor of its own so don’t
overdo it. If you have a favorite recipe, and would like it included here, simply send it to wcpfwebmaster@yahoo.
