    Hi Chef Tom, much earlier this year you mentioned something about possibly doing something 'sous vide' .. any chance you can do possibly a ribeye or ?? Love to see your take on something like this. Tim

    Hey Chef Tom…love the pheasant recipe!! I'm just up the interstate from you about 10 miles south of Olathe. I was already counting down the days until pheasant season opens…now I'm even more excited. Those bacon wrapped breast are something I will certainly be trying!! Thanks!!

    Having personally dispatched a flockfull of pheasant on the 12 Gauge Express, with all the marinade, rub, and sauce, you could just as well have wrapped a roof shingle in bacon and cooked that… There's no way you are tasting the succulent goodness that is pheasant flesh underneath all that.

    I will second your motion for the sweet potato puree. I have done pumpkin pie filling underneath just straight grilled pheasant breast rubbed with olive oil and basted with butter and sage. It's a winner
