In The Hunger Games, Katniss describes groosling as appearing similar to a small wild turkey. Thus, while we have no such animal, we can cook turkey in a way similar to Rue and Katniss’s after they form their alliance. This turkey, well smoked over a fire, won’t be quite as fatty as the groosling, but it will be just as delicious.

Tips from your sponsor: smoking is a form of slow cooking with wood as the key flavor. The fire should be low, between 225°F and 300°F. Whole birds, whole fish, large roasts, ribs and tough meats do well smoked slowly. Slow-smoked food is cooked until it’s well done.
