3lb Avg. Pheasant Whole-Each
Pheasant is one of the most popular of game birds. Pheasant has pinkish white meat. The leg and thigh meat however, tends to be a bit darker and firmer than the tender breast meat. The delicate flavor of farm-raised pheasant is subtle and pleasant, with a discernible trace of apple in many cases. The contrast of leg and thigh meat with the breast offers a good balance of flavor. Pheasant should be cooked quickly at high temperature and barding the breast is often recommended. Whole pheasants weight between 2 and 3 pounds and will serve 2 people.
