Thanks guys!

 

I'm just glad I can repay many of you guys from the South, and other meat smoking areas of the USA for helping me to learn how to smoke meat. You sure as Heck can't learn much about smoking meat from my neck of the woods!

 

I got a couple other PA Dutch goodies for you guys---Stay tuned!

I have had beef,oyster & guiness pie .Pretty good. Down in Tasmania they do a scallop pie,pretty similiar absolutely brilliant but not done on Mainland Australia.Big scallop ,oyster & fishing industry generally in Tasmania,pure clean,cold water.I ate a scallop pie everyday for 5 days when I was last there. If I  had to speculate Id say they were English in origin. Some had a light curry touch to the pie gravy. Tasmanian are very proud of them&so they should be.

I started coming to Dutch Country, Lancaster County, 25 years ago. I wasn't crazy about the Oyster Pie but I ate a lot of HAWG MAW!...For you non PA folks...  That's Roasted Pig's Stomach...Stuffed with Country Sausage, Potatoes, Celery, Carrots and Onions.

 

My Wife still talks about the time we went to an Amish All-You-Can-Eat Family Style Restaurant (A variety of Meats and Sausage, Chicken Pot Pie, aka Chicken and Egg Dumplings, Veggies and the Traditional 15 Sweet and Sour Relishes... All served at a Long Table seating 20 people)...We were there about 3 hours and I ate So Dern Much that I couldn't fit my BELLY behind the Steering Wheel of my Pickup Truck!... SHE HAD TO DRIVE HOME!...WE had only been dating about a MONTH...I'm still surprised She didn't Dump Me!...eek.gif...JJ

Tasmanian devils have had a terrible time the last 10 years with a contagious facial tumour disease. We are now relocating them to mainland to protected fenced breeding colonies to breed a disease resistent population.Then restock Tasmania in 5 years time. They are cute from a distance but scream & howl like demons when they argue amongst themselves. They eat a lot of roadkill, or dead anything theres been a few positive things lately so we hope we can save them. Always reminds me of those  cartoons with Bugs Bunny. I think Warner Bros donated $$ for research.

Scallop pies are really special. Ithink the scallops that dont make A grade go to pies, I became something of an expert ,best one from a pie cart at Salamanca markets just past the Hmong vegetable stalls, in Hobart.

I know I'd love Scallop pies!!

 

And as for that little devil, My hang-out saloon/restaurant for about 30 years (I built their new bar, kitchens, and waitress stations) used the Tasmanian Devil for a mascot. They had him on their T-shirts & everything.

I know we have wandered off the topic but Tassie Devils are so widely known because of those Warner Bros cartoons. They are Tasmanian only,same as the now extinct(maybe) thylacine or Tasmanian Tiger. Just released here the movie The Hunter starring William Dafoe filmed & set in Tasmania. Based around the idea that  a Tas Tiger may still exist. Last one died in captivity in 1930s. Movie has attracted great reviews. Tiger was a carnivour marsupial the size of Wolfhound ,ate sheep like nobodies business so shot to extinction. Maybe.

I will have a shot at a scallop pie or maybe a seafood mornay pie sometime soon.439.gif Not much of a baker but we will see. Perhaps scallops,oysters ,fish(blue eye trevalla just to keep it 100% tasmanian ingredients) .Maybe a touch of English mustard or a light touch of curry.drool.gif Sort of a chowder vibe439.gif. What do you think?

I think thats wild that a restaurant over your way has a Tassie Devil as a logo. The Hunter might be worth a look when it goes to DVD just for the sake of the Tassie scenery,its a really special place not fully appreciated by other Australians until they go there.

The lodges where they have Devil feeding stations are popular. They drag out a road kill wallaby & wait until the Devils & Quolls turn up to do battle over it at dusk. Quolls arent as nasty but meat eaters none the less.

Thanks for the kind words Bear. Ive learnt a lot on this forum.The whole style of BBQ that members do is new to me. All that brisket & pork butt isnt done in aussieflag.gif. Other stuff has parallels here because like USA we are are a great big melting pot of immigrants. Its just our wildlife thats a bit unique.

Light white sauce,milk,flour,butter,touch of mustard,shallot,lemon,parsleydrool.gif.Some times people put mashed potato on the top instead of pastry,make them in a big lasagne tray sort of thing.

Nothing like that around here---Maybe up in the New England States. I heard some of the locals up there are even beginning to grow claws. Lucky Peeps!!!
