Looks like they're still open and they've got a shop in Dunbar as well. Only been in a couple of times but aye, you'd need to be earning a wedge to get your Don Revie there regularly Monty Chuckle

Surprised at Dunbar, would have thought the good citizenry of North Berwick might be an easier bunch to fleece. Monty Oh You

I remember those days. Laugh

I also remember when they launched Tennents SD, I ended up scooped in town drinking freebies in Ross’s in Mitchell Street.

Ended up with a lifetime ban that night Eek but that’s another story entirely.

Never quite understood how 'craft beer' could be anything other than a hipster thing in the UK - my understanding is that it came about in the US as all that was available there was identikit mass produced lager, and in that context it kind of makes sense. In the UK there was always a broader range available anyway, so the colourful cans and so on always seemed like a bit of a gimmick aimed at popularising something that was already available anyway.

FWIW I got one delivery each on offer from Flavourly and Beer 52 - Flavourly was Quite Good , Beer 52 was alright but felt I would've enjoyed a Tennent's more than any of the beers they sent.

Kash/Pondy,

Kash, I was watching your alligator cooking on the other thread and it reminded me that we are slaughtering a turkey for thanksgiving next month. The plan is to turn her upside down into a funnel and slice it's head off with a tray to catch the blood. remove the feathers and clean the insides/stuff it.

Have you guys got any tips on any parts of the process? Pondy, I've included you as you like to kill things. Warnock

I killed about 50 chickens and 5 turkeys one sunny afternoon on the border of Zambia and Congo. What they did was wedge their neck in between two nails on a block of wood to stop it moving around too much, and chopped the head off with an axe before putting them in a wheelbarrow. There was almost no blood. 

They then dunked it into a bucket of boiling water for about 30 seconds before hanging them by their feet to pluck them.

That sounds mental, like pure medieval mental!  FuckMe










































Nahh, but seriously. jjay  
Normally with geese, and they've got quite strong necks Id guess when compared with your average Xmas sacrifice turkey I'd grab it and just swing it around, probaby four or five times, until its neck snaps.  You might have to do it more than you think as often it doesn't quite snap but instead just loosens.  If that happens you'll have to do it again once it unwinds and you realise that the animal is still alive.  Really have to brutally break its neck, forcefully!  Enjoy. Monty Oh You

























Tbh, I hated having to do it if I didn't kill them outright with the .22mag or .223, and had to chase them down.  They'd just eventually stop running, put heir head down towards the ground and simply give up with that horrified look in their eyes!  Was heartbreaking. Sob

Zlat pondy, absolute villain with your goose story. Warnock

The reason we are buying the turkey alive is because we know the boy who looks after them well and can confirm the turkeys have had a great quality of life. I'm trying re-build that connection with the food we eat that we've lost and understanding the sacrifices involved when eating meat.

We'll take the Turkey onto the farm we work at and let it acclimitise again for a few days, then from what I've saw, if you turn it upside down in a funnel or bucket, with it's neck poking out, it stays fairly calm. A quick slice with a machete and thats it done with minimal pain. Absolute amatuer hour though so don't want to botch it.

Interesting you say there was almost no blood, Kash. I wonder if it depends what part of the neck you slaughter with. The boiling water thing is a good idea.

I'm not looking forward to it, especially since we're spending time with the wee guy for a few days, but has to be done.

Monty Chuckle I'm not quite that sick!

I've shot a fair number of things over the years, for food btw, and really, the only times I've ever felt bad were for the geese, it wasn't easy as you had to physically do the business with your hands, no stand off with a bullet.  Saying that, the final bulet to the neck to finish off a caribou whilst standing over it looking it in the eye was never easy either.  They never seemed to show (sound out) any pain despite it obviously being the case with a hole the size of your fist in their rib-cage, or trailing their hind half if you had had the misfortune to mis the heart and catch them on the spine.   Monty LewLew

Ohh, Scott, you should drink its blood to purify its soul.   Monty Oh You

Was on Jura today, and managed ot get a 3kg hind rump/loin, whatever it's called, of venison. Missus was straight on ithe case, eating it together with a healthy 1cm thick fat layer in its raw/frozen state, commonly known in her parts as, qaaq.  I don't mind it like that tbqh but saved myself for the fry up later, with mash, onions & mushrooms and corn (normally we'd use creamy corn but Bowmore Coop don't do that!)

She (we are) is content. Laugh
