Every year we do a Christmas goose. It's our family tradition. It is SO good! Yes, it takes a little more work, but it is really worth it.
Plus, you have to have a large metal can to drain the goose fat into. We use a tomato juice can ... that is empty because we made Bloody Mary's, another wonderful family tradition!
Honk, Honk Honk!! I can hear the Grey Goose calling my name!
