Hello out there This is my second post, and I figured I'd introduce myself. I'm 22, just moved to Anchorage, Alaska from Fairbanks, Alaska where I have lived the past 10 years. I tend to just lurk for the first few weeks on a forum, get to know the rules and the way things are run, so hopefully I won't step on any toes. I've never actually been snowboarding, but my boyfriend goes all winter, and I'm going to start going this season.
I've got a few questions, but I'll ask them in the appropriate sections.
P.S. Moose meat is actually really good, and in my opinion, better than cow!
Moose is really good but I found that sausage made from it is greasy. Excellent roast though and a very nice goulash as well. I love deer but can't stand elk; I find it has a strong marrow flavour. Wild boar is the most foul smelling meat I've ever cooked but the most succulent meat I've ever eaten. And rabbit is just a really satisfying dinner when it is seperated and roasted like a chicken. I have not eaten bear.
STICK OPPOSITION MOVEMENT
If you want to act 'serious',
then become a skier!
cariboo is proper tasty, but really its just flash deer innit? i don't imagine bear to be too good. meat eaters tend not to be too tasty.... altho tuna is good stuff......
duck is too greasey IMO and rabbit is just a pain in the arse; like frogs, just too many bones to be worth the effort.
the single tenderest meat i ever ate tho, was when the in-laws roasted a pig's head.... i thought the cheek was nice, until they pulled out the tongue! maybe i was grossed out by the whole experience and so was left with low expectations, but chowing down on that tongue..... damn!
i left the eye ball sucking to the father in law! damn these sicilians are twisted! hahahahaaa!
Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!
I never really liked Caribou. I've only had it twice though, from the same animal, so maybe it was just prepared wrong? Bear is really good, but if you ever get one, do NOT give the bones to your dogs. I made that mistake, and then heard from a few friends that they experienced the same thing. It gives dogs the runs so bad.
Never tried Moose, but I don't imagine it to taste like deer. Elk doesn't really taste like deer, and even antelope is different. Bear is good, but can be greasy if not prepared properly. I love rabbit very much. Put one in a crock pot with some potatoes, onions, carrots and stuffed with apples, rosemary and other herbs, really really good.
My girlfriend says rattlesnake is good, but I have yet to try it. Ostrich is also good.
