Friday evening we packed a picnic and headed out to Birdlings Flat, a long rough beach of flattened stones half an hour south of our house. Molly’s ulterior motive for the outing was to collect little stones for a mosaic, and Jeremiah decided that a barbeque would make it worth his while. There’s plenty of driftwood at the beach, but Jeremiah had to get creative with the other details, since we don’t have a grilling grate. That meat is suspended on a coat hanger propped up by driftwood, finished off by searing on a hot rock. It was really good!
Shaw genes rule!
Gotta know what kind of meat? Did you catch it in the sea?
It was wild Red Stag, very tasty!
Jeremiah came home with tahr yesterday (a Himalayan mountain goat), so that’ll probably be the next thing roasting over the fire.
He must be loving this!!
Okay, never heard of Red Stag so I had to look it up. Did you get a buck with a nice rack or a doe? I don’t know about the goat. Do they have lots of meat on them? It looked small. Never ate goat, or sheep don’t think I would want too. What does goat taste like?
Oh, you’re missing a good piece of life if you’ve never eaten sheep! The Tahr was really delicious, didn’t taste “gamey” at all. But you’re right, they are on the small side compared to deer. Good thing they herd up, it seems like a body can shoot several on a single hunting trip. Jeremiah hasn’t gotten any red stag or other deer yet, we had just been given some by other hunters.
