Thread: What do you use to boil heads in?

  1. #1

    What do you use to boil heads in?

    I've got a couple of large pots but nothing big enough to fit in and cover a red deer's head to boil it.
    Any (sensible) suggestions please?

    You could try a large (size 1/1) stainless Bain Marie pot (this kind of thing GASTRONORM CONTAINER 1/1 FULL SIZE STAINLESS STEEL SUITABLE FOR BAIN MARIE PAN | eBay)

    Usually quite a bit cheaper than a proper cooking pot!

    I use an old metal paint drum of 20 L`s usually and do it on an open fire outside whilst sucking the insides out of a stubby of ale.

    For Reds I use a galvanised bin with a water heater.

    Burco boilers aren't always great depending on the angle and spread of the coronets and antlers as they don't always allow the whole skull to be submerged, I bought a galvanised oblong garden bucket which is more than big enough for a full red, you do the need something with fair output to heat that amount of water though.
