Not ciy squabs but corn fed country birds.

Good eating?

How do you cook them?

Are they any different from Doves?

They are really no different than doves! What I do is soak a water-chestnut and place it along the breastbone. Use a pre-cooked bacon to wrap around the breast and water-chestnut while using a tooth pick to hold this in place. Cook on the grill about 3 minutes per side and then remove. My kids eat the bacon and I usually eat the chestnut. This keeps the breast moist and flavorful!

Their definitely is a difference between a pigeon and a dove. No difference in how you cook them but definitely in how they taste. Pigeons are alot tougher than doves, and they have a little different flavor, but other than that pigeons are fairly decent. I shot alot of them this year, since their were more of them than doves.

In an economy like we are currently experiencing,

Pigeon becomes the "other white meat"

Lets hope not !

We never ate them, but my mom says that there was a man who wanted my dad to bring them home from the shoots for him. He put them in a spaghetti sauce. Kim

The way that I fix them is to soak the breasts in milk for 5 or 6 hrs in fridge. Prepare a lb or 2 of pasta and gravy, rinse the birds place them in the pasta and bake it @350 degrees covered for 3 hrs, uncover for 15 mins. and enjoy. Good eats. Fran

Harry the Hammer enjoys dining on a pidgeon once in a while. Says his taste buds lean more toward all orange White Flyers but he will down a few black rims now and then.
