Wild Boar Burgers

Qvist , our Dutch distributor just hosted an outdoor cooking course called Hunters & Gatherers. Their last class was based around wild mushroom gathering, while this one involved cooking a wild boar. They practice snout to tail cooking and spent the day cooking stews, smoking and grilling meats all over an open fire. They also made wild boar burgers that were cooked using Rome's wilderness burger grillers. I hear they tasted great.

Smakelijk eten!

By repeating the process several times, he gets the iron seasoned to a level that would make a professional chef smile.

There are two versions of the video - 10 minute full process video and a shorter video that comes in at just under 4 minutes and covers the key steps.
