    Just got on to my local camel supplier, would it go in beef or where.?Polite answers please. Its sort of a Xmas vibe three wise men & all that.

    Im thinking a tritip feel once I  work out the cuts.

    I'd post it in the smoking section along with Winston, Salem, Kent, etc. vs. the non-smoking section like desserts, etc.

    There are 1,000,000 wild camels  down here.They were used to open up the desert regions in the 1800s,telegraph lines,supply railway work gangs, deliver mail you name it. Imported from Yemen ,Canary Islands Pakistan, Afghanistan.Then turned loose in the 1920s when the motor car took over. Big mistake,the population doubles every 9 years.We have huge deserts & camels & deserts go together ,no big surprises there.

    They are now a pest,we catch some re domesticate them train them for racing & sell them back to the Arabs but the slow ones ?? 

    National parks shoot them from helicopters & leave them to rot.But there is now a fledging industry catching them ,involving remote Aboriginal communities providing jobs,$$.[​IMG]

    Lets face it they are just a big herbivore,totally free range,cleanest environment in Australia.

    So Im going to work out how to do one in the MES. I will work this out,somehow.[​IMG]  I assume I will use some Middle Eastern flavours in it, take it  to Im rambling I  have no idea[​IMG].I have got to eyeball it & pick a cut then wing it,maybe a Beirut butt as opposed to a Boston Butt. Who knows. Wish me luck.

    It seems to me  that camel might be a bit tough.     I would definitely marinate in a fruit juice like apple, seasonings with some tenderizer for five days.  Have you actually eaten camel yet?  If so what does it taste like?  Good luck.  Smoking' Vegas.

    Ive had it as prosciutto made from the hump,but a long while ago. Its a wild animal now so as for tough is it going to be any tougher than elk?  I assume that they select the younger animals,I doubt very much thats its field shot,more likely caught live then shipped to the meatworks at Alice Springs.They cut it & label using the same terms as for beef. Its the new frontier cooking wise .I posted ages ago a recipe for chermoula which is a Turkish/Morocan marinade,fresh cilantro,parsley,preserved lemon,garlic,chilli,EVO,then spices like cumin,coriander,fennel seed,fenugreek . I figure I will head in that direction. 
    The wholesaler is getting back to me on whats available,its been a wet year in the outback so they will be well fed. We ship tons to Europe I assume for the Arabic communities in France,Belgium etc. .I think its popular as shish kebab .
