    Well, as usual, I have waited until the last minute to do my Christmas shopping. Just got a catalog in the mail yesterday advertising meat as a gift and it sounds like a good idea.

    They had smoked hams, cured hams, smoked salmon, venison roast, alligator stew, buffalo jerky, etc.

    Since I can't think of any better idea and since there is no time left to order anything, I have decided to but the meat locally but I need some help deciding. Since it will be way cheaper in bulk, I will have to get all the same kind.

    Listed below are the meats I have found locally. Help me decide, which of these meats would you prefer as a gift.

    I voted Reindeer!!!! I had venision earlier this week, I really like it but it's very deer:rolleyes:


    To be honest it's a tough one between Smoked Salmon and Venison! But in the end venison!!!

    And as 'The Far Side' stated - "All the woodland animals remembered where they were when Bambi's mum was shot";)

    I'm not a fish fan, so I say go with the venison or the jerky. I mean c'mon, who doesn't like jerky?

    I personally would prefer getting reindeer sausage, but think of the reaction you'd get from your friend's kids:

    "Mommy!!! Daddy!!! It's sausage made out of RUDOLPH!!! Waaaaaa!"

    Go for the salmon.

    i'd say the jerky. i love jerky. (fish probably wouldn't be as good of an idea unless you're sure the person really likes fish, as many people don't take to it.)

    Some smoke-dried reindeer, of course. But be careful, they'll be asking for more :eek:

    Nah... give 'em some kangaroo or croc' steaks.
    We're farming crocodiles now over here in Aus.
    Tastes like chicken sorta.   only with teeth!   ;)
    And 'roo is good lean tucker too!
    Might as well eat the poor beggars, they're just dyin' in the 1 in 100 year drought anyway.

    There's an exotic meat-gift idea for you!

    Haha, cheesy jokes rule ;)

    I've never tried venison, or a jerky or the other stuff on the list (including roadkill ;) )
     
  12. I don't like game much, so I said jerky. How much could deer jerky really taste like deer?

    My Dad, who doesn't seem to know me, always gets me a slab of cow, or pork, or whatever.

    I'd really like a Gift Certificate to GC or something for strings instead.

    Maybe he thinks I'm under-nourished.
     
  19. I'll take the smoked salmon, nanook. Would you like me to PM you my mailing address so you can send it to me?
