    Lion meat, anyone?

    Now, if only they'd get rid of the tacos.

    I liked the part where the US Feds say that any meat can be served as long as it isn't endangered. Tongue in cheek---how can it be endangered if it is already dead?

    I have a couple sites where I've gotten exotic meat. I WISH I had the money for lion. So far I've gotten ostrich, kangaroo, alligator and antelope. They're the less expensive "exotic" meats.

    I just had an internal battle with myself, half of me would absolutely eat a lion in hopes of becoming as fierce as one, another part of me wants to respect such a beast... oh no, this is what vegetarians must feel like.

    $8.75 for a taco made with lion meat? can't you walk into any college town and pick up some orange glazed alley cat for half that and be getting nearly the same thing?

    @diana: what is kangaroo like?

    Kangaroo is quite comparable to venison. Very lean, extremely tender.

    Diana - I tried kangaroo while I was in Australia and thought it was really tough. Maybe I had poor quality stuff...but the locals that I talked with suggested it is often tough.
    Now, the crocodile, that was good stuff.
    And, I just clicked on your Boarfest 2011 link - that sounds like fun!!! I wish I lived anywhere nearby so I could come.

    Mmmm orange glazed alley cat..drool...

    I bet it tastes the same. I can't say I've ever tried cat though. And I wouldn't pay $4 for a cat taco.

    Wow, really? Now... is it farmed or do they hunt it too? The stuff I bought was farmed. Maybe that is the difference? It would be fantastic if you were close enough to attend Boarfest. Nothing like chilling out with amazing Primal peeps.


    Closest thing I've had to cat is raccoon. Quite tasty. If it were a feral cat... I'd eat it.

    anything more than 1.5 years is loses a lot of tenderness
