I can't cook, so I guess I screwed it up

Moose is also a little trickier- cook slowly and don't overcook or it becomes like leather

I've got to say, no wonder your dogs look so happy, being fed elk!

The British government has now said it's toast and roast potatoes what gives you cancer. But yesterday when I went down the shops, all the warning stickers are still on packets of fags. And they're still banging on about BSE and that was years ago. It's so typical that Canada is always behind the times.

Some Canadian once told me that bacon was bad for me.
I replied "So is walking in front of a bus"

Moderation people moderation.

They are fed raw so they eat all manner of things. One of our neighbours is a hunter so, during the hunting season, there is no end of meat, bones and organs available.

Once he brought over 2 deer that had been killed earlier in the day. He didn't have any space available to butcher them, so he hung them from the rafters in our horse barn and allowed my wife and daughter (the dogs belong to them) to butcher them and take whatever they wanted. As a result, we now have all manner of butcher's implements and they now know what it takes to put meat onto a plate.

Well done those women! I'd love to think I might be up for it, but I truly wouldn't know where to start! It's what's put me off the lamb in Costco, I'm sure we'd end up hacking chunks and having some Neanderthaal style feast!

Talking of organs...and that it's Burns night tonight, does anyone in Canada do anything like Haggis? Or...dare I say Faggots...which I loved as a kid, which are all made with those bits aren't they?

I made some faggots a few years back with adjustments to a recipe I found. None of the others would eat liver so I avoided that bit but I thought it worked quite well.
