Mix all dry rub seasonings together in a bowl. Using clean hands, rub the seasonings all over the exterior and interior of the birds.


Heat a smoker to 250 degrees and use apple wood chips or apple bisquettes. Place geese on the middle rack and bake for 2 hours. Use a meat thermometer to check temperature of the thickest part of the birds. Continue smoking until meat registers 150-155 degrees. Remove from smoker and loosely cover with aluminum foil. Let rest for 30 minutes to 1 hour before slicing.

Serve sliced goose meat in a warm flour or corn tortilla with shredded cabbage, sliced green apples, shaved carrots and cilantro sauce.
