Your standard chicken rice soup but with grouse is my favorite. Something like this, except I add a good dose of fresh thyme from my back yard:

With grouse, be careful to make sure the fat gets into the stock by either stewing the whole plucked bird or making sure to save the fat from the skin if you skin. If you do not get the fat into the stock, add a little more butter.

Grouse Pot Pie. My favorite way to eat a grouse. Mix it up with fresh vegetables from the garden. Yum!

1/2 a stick of butter and 2 sausage links in the body cavity, wrap in foil and throw it in the fire.

super easy to breast out, fry up some tenders or make some grouse tacos!

Also, I've been listening to Hank Shaw's Podcast, and he was mentioning that if you leave the breast meat on the bone, and roast a few in the oven, the meat is even more tender and better than breasting them out, so I'll be trying that with my (hopeful) grouse this year!

Grouse are one of my absolute favorite meats for fajitas. Slice the breast meat into strips and season with coriander, cumin, chipotle, and kosher salt. Heat a couple tablespoons of bacon grease in a heavy skillet, blacken some onions and garlic, then add the meat. Let the meat cook on one side for 1-2 minutes, stir to flip, and then add a bunch of chopped/sliced bell peppers to the pan. Hit everything with a healthy splash of Worcestershire sauce and squeeze 1-2 limes, and season with more salt as needed.

Hit that with some pico de gallo, queso cotija, crema, guac and good tortillas...mmmmmm

As for the legs, save those up until you have 5-10 sets of legs. Then make confit with those and enjoy. Or soak in italian dressing for a couple hours and then grill the legs that is pretty tasty too.
