Thread: Elephant for Dinner

  1. #1

  2. #2
    I grew up in very rural Malawi, and my father worked for the National Parks dept. one of my very earliest memories is of exactly this. Standing in line for hours in the dust, flies and heat, waiting my turn to get a bucket filled with meat, and walking home balancing a slab of bleeding meat on my head with one hand and lugging the bucket with the other. I think my dad had actually shot the elephant in question as a problem animal in someone's maize field. It's quite tasty stuff.

    Blessed be the sheeple for they shall inherit bugger all...

    The comments underneath make interesting reading. Especially the OP and then the guy telling him to go kill himself.

    You'd not want to slip with the knife when gralloching jumbo, I imagine (or rather, I'd prefer not to!). In fact, even if it all went well it would undoubtedly be quite an experience!

    My recollection is that it's not as bad as you'd think. Once you make the initial incision (done with pangas and saws), the skin peels away quite easily.
