I don't watch "any" Reality show but that one sounds entertaining. I must admit that I've eaten Possum (very oily tho), Rattlesnake (fantastic), Coon (if young and done right yum yum), I can't wait each year for MUd Bugs (aka crawfish) to come in season and I eat them like a Cajun does by dragging the fat outa the head and sucking it plus the delicious tail meat. Don't think I've eaten dog or cat but I've eaten at several Asian dumps so I probably have. Don't like tripe, pigs feet, squid (calamari), garfish or chitlins but I'm game for most anything else if it's cooked properly.

 Not really reality, just a cooking show, well, that's what I think. I'm with you on mud bugs, we call em koura or fresh water cray. Tiny but very sweet. I'm with ya on the tripe, mum force fed it to us as kids,yuk. Apart from tripe and Kina which is a sea urchin? Disgusting, I'll try anything.

paua patties are yummy, you guys call em abalone?  I have contacts for anything you can think of. Smoked eel one of my faves along with crayfish.

I watch him once in a while. I think he looks for the stuff that will gross the most people out, but once in a while, he digs out some gem.

He meets some very interesting characters that's for sure! A bit like rick steins cooking shows.

I like to eat and cook just like everybody else, but I steer clear of any of that off the wall stuff.. Meat and taters keep me satisfied,,  altho growing up in New Mexico, got me attached to Mexican food,, and love to cook my own version of a lot of dishes,, My mom was a Fabulous cook,, and it shows. in my pants size,,,,,blankstare 

I do watch his show once in a while, pretty interesting on what some people will eat,, probably from the lack of available food and funds led people to eat anything that was available,  fresh road kill must have looked appetizing to some hungry folks,, anything when the belly is empty looks good,,

'gator - now that I've indulged in a few time in Florida. It's either been excellent or similar to an old sneaker.

We will be in Tejas about the time of that Gatorfest but a long way away in the Panhandle, i.e. Amarillo area on our way back to Yankeedom

same here, Dave, but ?most? times it was good because I was in the right area/restaurant - - - - too bad Y'all won't be closer so I could shake your hand and buy Y'alls lunch - - - if you go down Route 66 take note of the Conoco Tower and U-Drop-In there in Shamrock where my Mom and Dad used to work when I was just a glimmer in their eyes - - - someone once said "if they ever decide to give Texas an enema the best place to insert the nozzle would be Amarillo" 

maybe this was slightly a hi-jack but now the thread knows that it's loved biggrin

 Em, I asked for and have received 'touristy' stuff from all the states we plan on either visiting or just passing through. A very well put together Route 66 booklet along with a bunch of other Oklahoma travel information arrived in a cardboard box and by far the best yet, the Texas one, so-so

Yes, that part of the Texas Panhandle is not the most hospitable part of that state. I've been there with my former employer when we were selling turbines and parts to what was the original El Paso Natural Gas

I know what you mean - - a pamphlet of Route 66 across the Panhandle of Texas shouldn't take more than a couple pages and that includes the front and back. LOL

Route 66 on my bucket list,lol, maybe in a stang,lol.

I know you guys love ya chillies, my wife grows them in summer and freeze. My kids love the heat so I serve chillies as a side, mainly because my 4 grandkids don't like heat yet. Last night smoked chicken,mushroom, pea tomat pasta and fettuccine. All made by me. With my own garlic bread as well. I put heaps butter on, grill, small drizzle sweet chilly sauce then a bit of grated cheese. Everyone loves it!!
