Same recipe for pukekos (swamp hens) here Jeff.

I fancy they might be slightly more tender than roos after the same cooking regimen.

 

My cuz in NSW says he'll take me roo shootin' up North when I'm next over there. He owes me after getting him a deer here :)

 

cheers

I had Roo in Oz few years back and it wasn't bad at all, it was in a pie if memory serves. Had Camel and Water Buff as well and they were both good eatin'

Thought F£ck all to Croc' though.... sort of fishy chicken.

 

The Jock's cook Capacallie by diggin'a hole, putting a well seasoned brick in the bottom with the Cappa' on top then filling it in for six months, before digging the whole mess up and eating the brick.....

that's one of the 6 we got that night and we only kept the hind legs. Ate them a couple of days later, sort of a venison steak taste, quite pleasant. They made a lot of sausages from them too, and they were tasty too!

 

best wishes,

Hi all , The reason i threw in the bit about the Big Red Kangaroo is because the adult males grow pretty big and are a tough as nails to eat .. A big fellow can stand 1.8 meters high and weight in from 90 through to 150 KGS .. The Wallaby's pictured are a lot smaller and more suitable for the pot .. I'd still pick on prawns/mudcrab or fish fresh caught as i live beside the Great Barrier Reef and it's plentiful and cheap ..JR
