    Well, it's cheap down under. They're tripping over the roos down there. It's as expensive as all heck here though if you order it on the net and have it shipped.

    Some enterprising Aussie Primal could make a great business out of just buying roo locally in a supermarket and shipping it up here. Even with a markup for time, effort, and postage, it would still probably be cheaper.

    Some of my down under mates have complained about bison meat being so expensive for them. Maybe we could set up a swap system, roo for bison.

    Actually, I have *rarely* seen roo meat in supermarkets around here. (Not that I buy meat from the supermarket often - prefer to deal direct with the growers at farmers' markets.) True confession: I don't think I've ever tasted it in my life! I don't know anyone who eats roo much, if ever - it's something you might try at a restaurant on a special occasion, but it's not common where I live (the genteel eastern suburbs of Melbourne). Perhaps roo is more popular in the north or the west of the country - Australia is a *big* place.

    I live in the blue-collar scumbry west of Melbers and kanga meat is available in Woolworths (local supermarket) as mince, steaks and sausage. Other than cooking it myself, I've only eaten it in rather posh restaurants though, most notably, Charcoal Lane (which also sometimes serves wallaby). YUM!

    I also know of someone who hunts/harvests kangaroos, but then that person is primal.

    It is available in Woolworths but I have never eaten it either, just does not seem right to eat what''s on the national emblem

    I think that may be part of why the US rejected the turkey as ours.

    Do I earn any points for having eaten crocodile and possum?
