Whole head recipes?
« on: July 04, 2016, 03:44:00 PM »
Anyone ever cooked a whole game head? I've seen it done a few times in those weird food TV shows where they cook a whole beef or goat head but never known anyone who has personally done it. I was thinking of trying it out this fall if I get a deer. Possibly burying it under ground or maybe just slowing cooking on the grill.

Someone has been watching to much Andrew Zimmern on Food Network...  Please tell us how it turns out.  If I were doing it I would try slow indirect heat with a little bit of Mesquite smoke.  Good luck.

That goes on all the time here in South Texas and Mexico. I guess the Spanish brought it over but not sure. We,they usually have a whole in the ground that is used. Usuall about 2-3' deep. Old school was salt pepper,what ever kind of seasoning ,dry rub. Rap head in century plant leaves,then wet burlap. Fire was started in whole let it burn down to coals remove half of coals and place head in whole ,other half on top. You want at least a foot or more of dirt on top of that. new school is don't use centaur plant  just rap in heavy foil ,several layers,no wet burlap. Cow heads were cooked over night,goat heads usually about 4-6 hours. Hardwoods for fire, mesquite .

On that TV show "meat eater" Steve Rinella roasts a buck head and uses the meat to make tacos.  I like his show a lot. He hunts for the right reasons. He eats every bit of what he shoots. He's eaten a coyote before and liked it! I couldn't find the buck head clip but here's a meal he made from the other end of the buck and to me makes the head look tame!!

He took the head wrapped it in foil and then burlap. Buried it in coals for 3 hours and it came out really good.

I just cleaned my bear skull, I was impressed with the amount of meat on his head, next one I'm saving it!

Buy the book "the whole beast" by Ferguson Henderson. It's full of great nose to tail recipes. Including some good head recipes.
