    Default British meat delicacies

    I'm surprised that (afaik) no one posted this yesterday. Let's put the
    rat in ratatouille.

    Also hints to why Oscar Meyer stopped making "Little Smokies."

    That makes a fine case for not buying mystery meat.

    I wouldn't be surprised if rat is eaten in some parts of the
    world.

    A friend would drive to Tijuana, Mexico once a month to
    calibrate his company meat scales in some way. Afterwards we'd
    stop at a street cart run by two senoras making dog meat
    taquitos. We didn't pay as we go, rather when we finished. Way
    off the tourism of Revolucion Ave.

    They were delicious. I asked my friend if it was really dog
    meat. In all seriousness he asked "Do you see any dogs?" While
    I didn't, I still felt he was joking but if he was he never
    did let on that he was. After all these decades later I'll
    never know for sure Still, they WERE tasty. We ate there
    every time.

    "West African and environmental health officer sources told the BBC
    the Ridley Road Market, in Dalston, was a known hotbed of illicit meat
    activity, including sales of illegal "smokies", a delicacy made by
    charring sheep or goat with a blow torch."

    Weren't they using food grade propane?

    It's interesting to note that the first butcher they encounter to sell
    them rat meat has several pictures of Obama on the wall behind the
    meat counter. Possibly implying that Obama is a connoisseur of and
    endorses African bushmeat?

    Hillshire Farms still makes/sells them (as "Lit'l Smokies"). Sheldon
    buys them by the case from Walmart.
