Default Horse meat - Where?

First up: No anti horse meat posts please, sure it is taboo, but so is beef and pork in other parts of the world, so if you don't like horse meat then don't eat it and go read something else.

So with Australia being a big exporter of horse meat, and the price per kg being so much cheaper than beef, I've been starting to consider replacing beef on the bbq with horse on the bbq.

Then I went to try and finds some and I have to say that due to the tabooness of it, nobody advertises that they have it which has not made it easy to find. So does anyone know where I can get some at a reasonable price (i.e. cheaper than beef)

I'd imagine it would be something that you'd have to ask a local butcher for. A bit too far outside of mainstream to find at the Woolies deli

A butcher local to me can supply stuff like camel and alpaca meat, but it something that you have to specifically order.

Horse's do a *shitload* more than Cows.

Unless you're slowly cooking it (smoking, braising, etc) , enjoy leather.

You could try kangaroo, personally I think it tastes gross. you might not like horse so i'd try a small bit before buying a full side if I was in your (horse) shoes.

I would be surprised if it is cheaper than beef, report back when you find out.

Definitely- I'd assume slow cooking is basically the only way to eat most horse meat.

RE: Horse Meat
I'd be interested to know as well.

I'd like to host some sort of Meatstravaganza, where as many different animals as possible are sampled.

Roo is delicious when cooked properly, and terrible when cooks poorly. but it's no where near as cheap as it should be.

Something like a ZOO-B-Q ?

That would actually be pretty damn cool...

I want to like it and we should be eating it, but I just prefer cow. Especially for the relative prices.

I think its a great idea to eat horses, it might meant they can't feed them a heap of steroids etc that would make them unfit for human consumption.

Same...

I 'can' eat it if it is served, but I would always prefer a slab of cow over a piece of Australian leaping rat.
My kids don't mind it though and that is probably a product of them eating it at an early age... we probably do it as burgers more than anything.

and yeah... the prices are freaking ridiculous considering roos are pretty much vermin in some parts.

I had raw horse meat in japan before. It's similar to beef. Was served with a raw egg and some dipping sauce. Wasn't too bad.

i learned the other day when cooking up some juicy roo steaks that my missus hates kangaroo. which is a shame, cos i love it.

this does just give me an excuse to get a proper BBQ outdoors though, and cook up a roo storm

I just can't find anywhere the stocks Long Pig.


So I googled Zoo-B-Q to find it if that sort of thing existed...

I'd be fucking astounded if it ends up being cheaper than beef, OP, unless you're going out there and shooting a brumby yourself

Go to the nearest Zoo or break into a farm property and steel a horse or alternatively ride it back home where you can butcher it for its meat. Personally I like zebra meat, taste great. I think I might try human meat next time a person gets on my shit list.
