Once the hair's blackened it's scraped off then the tail is wrapped in foil and cooked in the coals. To be honest by the time it was done the smell was so bad I couldn't face eating any of the meat, which is very gelatinuous and sinewy apparently and somewhat of an acquired taste.

    Don't like many of the native meats here in Australia; kangaroo, emu, crocodile. Love camel though, good thing we have plenty of the feral buggers here in central Australia. The meat is delicious! And given the animals are free-ranging it's all grass-fed guaranteed.
    Feral camels? For some reason the image of that cracks me up!

      I find that it jumps around a bit too much on the BBQ.

        Yep, feral camels...it's estimated there's about a million of the damn things in central and northern Australia. They were brought over as pack animals by the Afghanis in the 19th century. Once there was no longer any use for them they were released and now they're a huge problem for the environment. Interestingly, the camels in Australia are one of the purest strains in the world because they've been isolated for so long. They're highly prized in the Middle East for racing and for their meat. It's a pity the meat isn't more widely sold here in Australia, it's lean and very very tasty! One of the big problems is that you have a million animals spread out over millions of square kms in the most remote parts of the country...makes them very difficult to round up, let alone get them to slaughter etc...hard to make it cost effective.

          Another good reason to move to Australia, all you lovely Aussie men.
          if you ever want to come over i could put you up in the spare room and the roo meat is sold in the local supermarket and you can eat as much as you want it is not that expensive over here

            Yeah, I've never seen kangaroo here in the grocery stores either. Maybe on a restaurant menu - not sure about that. The local brewpub does wild game dinners every once in awhile and they had emu burgers on the menu, but I like their regular burgers and never tried it. They've changed it to wild game burger, but it's different every day and we don't eat out as much as we used to.

              Made a point of eating kangaroo several times when I was in Australia. I'd eat it regularly if I could but, alas, not many kangaroos here. Heh, when I first saw wallabies I thought "I wonder what they taste like".

              My only "unusual" meat staples are horse and whale meat.

                Sounds tempting.

                  OMG. Kangaroo kakadu steak under the grill medium raw. Best possible meat available. I'll post some photos next week.

                    I just found kangaroo meat at Sprouts in Cali. It was ground kangaroo and I was too chicken to try it.

                      we do this here with lamb's tails if they've been chopped off when they are tailing. i've not noticed kangaroo in the shops here. i find it kinda bizarre shipping meat to another country myself. we do have feral wallabies which i am reliably informed have black flesh and lots of worms which sounds a bit far fetched. the person who told me is pretty onto it tho so who knows. we also have lots of possums but i've never eaten one. if roo is anything like deer, i have found the flavour depends on the species, the sex, the time of year and what it was eating. i guess too it would depend if it was farmed or wild hunted.

                      My only "unusual" meat staples are horse and whale meat.
                      we arent allowed any horse meat in my house. even the slightest hint of horse meat in the pet food causes a riot. my middle daughter has a horse and has been known to permanently cross someone off the xmas card list who made dead horse jokes. having met some nasty horses and seen some neglected ones, i have no issue but i am not 11 lol

                        On the topic of wallaby meat, I'd assume it'd be very like kangaroo meat!

                        I have eaten roo meat only a couple of times, but I don't mind it so I think I'll be buying it more often!

                          that was exactly my thought but apparently not. it is listed on the web sites of places here that sell wild game so maybe it is just the wallaby near us that are dodgy. and as i said, the person who told me shoots them and is generally a reliable source of info. maybe i should demand a carcass next time they all go shooting lol

                            There is a lot of misinformation about the quality of various meats. I come across this all the time. Will happily eat many fish that others will throw back or will only use for bait. For mine, the more a fish is prized for bait, the more likely it is to make good sashimi (oiliness counts in both cases)
