I was surfing the web as usual, and came across a video of a couple 'roos boxing in the street of a residential district.
It was entertaining, for me...

I've never been game to try it but it's supposed to be good on a barbecue. You can buy it here in new Zealand at delicatessen prices. (About four times the price of our kiwi Lamb. My old local supermarket used to do kangaroo steaks and crocodile steaks at eighty dollars a kg.. I used to stop and stare but was always just beyond my price range

I tried it once it was strong flavoured but chewy I thought. It was a shot wild one though.

Thank you!

I was just curious, after watching that vid...

It's been a long time since I was in a position to eat wild game, but we did regularly eat quail, doves, pigeons, gray squirrels, a rabbit here and there, and occasionally a deer and if we were lucky, someone brought elk, moose, or bear to one of our BBQ parties. Good ole' days, I guess! :-)

I'm spending a lot of effort growing a few veggies in my baccy patch... tomatoes, beans, peppers, daikon, eggplant, squash, (always squash!), melons, and it takes a lot of effort to keep them away from the deer!
For all the work I put in to it, I wish I could grow cheeseburgers!
:-)

Bear meat is greasy... no way to make it go away. It's not real popular. rc

and they are spooky, hangin from the meathooks... if head is off, or you can't see it, they look very human...

Having had farmed roo and wild roo, both are great!

The smell isn't the best but the taste is great! And it is pretty good for you too!

Wild Roo meat is very lean yet very gamey.... "Strong flavour" I have had a very nice young blue flyer in a slow cooked casaroll it was beautifull.
For older roo meat here is a receipe.

In a large stock pot add diced Roo,mixed vegetables cubed,salt pepper to taste.Stew for about 2hrs at a simmer.20 minutes before its cooked add a large stone in to the pot.finish cooking.

I was given some one time,The guy told Me to par broil it first. I soaked it in butter milk over nite. Then boiled it befor putting it on the BBQ. It came out very good. It didn't have the so called game tast. That tast comes from meat that stays out to long. Some folks like that tast.(not I) mad-
