DIRECTIONS

  • Heat together the water and salt until salt is dissolved, then allow to cool to room temperature for about a half hour.
  • Add the sugar, syrup, onions, garlic, cloves, and lemon and cayenne pepper (if using).
  • Add pheasant, cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • The next day, preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Place brined pheasant in a roasting pan breast up and insert a tablespoon of the butter under the breast skin.
  • Rub the rest of the butter all over the pheasant, then roast uncovered for about 1-1/2 hours; check after an hour, though.
  • Baste frequently!
  • And if you like, to keep the breast meat moist, you can cover it with bacon strips as well.
