Do I need to roast my goose on a rack?
Last Updated: 07/26/2012
Yes. As a waterfowl, your goose will have more fat rendering from it than a chicken or a turkey. You need to have your goose elevated to keep the bird above the juices/fat that will accumulate in the bottom of the roaster. You may have to periodically siphon off some of the juices from the pan. A bulb baster works well for this. If you do not have a rack, you can successfully improvise by placing 2 small ovenproof saucers or bowls upside down in the bottom of the roaster and placing your goose on top of them.
