Someone brought over Mutton the he had cooked to give to me (I like mutton cooked right), I took one look at it, smelled it and decided it wasn't fit for human consumption so I put it in my dogs food dish. Guess what he did, smelled it, tucked his tail between his legs and ran off... I kid you not, he really tucked in his tail and ran off. Now the guy that gave it to me is Mexican (I wonder if it really wasn't dog meat[:D][:D])

I did call the guy that gave it to me and told him how delicious I thought it was...

Anyway, Mutton is good eats if cooked RIGHT, not fit for a dog if cooked wrong.

    I guy I know brought over some Mutton roast the he had cooked for Memorial Day... Now I do like mutton (cooked right), I took one look at it, smelled it and decided it wasn't fit for human consumption. So I put it in my dogs food dish. Guess what he did, smelled it, tucked his tail between his legs and ran off... I kid you not, he really tucked in his tail and ran off. Now the guy that gave it to me is Mexican (I wonder if it really wasn't dog meat)

    I figured I'd leave it there for a while, maybe Rebel would eventually eat it. But nooo. I could tell he was getting in tirsty because he went into go get a drink, and he walked in took one look at it and started barking and growling. I know K-9s like mutton, coyotes think it's a delicacy. But not my dog. He thinks it's something that's going to bite him and he's even scared to death of it. Now you got understand he's not a picky eater, If I gave him a rock and told him it was food he would eat it, but he won't touch mutton.

    Anyway, this is not the first time he's turned his nose up to mutton, about five years ago the same guy gave me a Mutton roast that wasn't cooked right either, and I tried to get my dog eat it. With the same results

    I absolutely LOVE lamb is nearly all way, shapes, and forms. I don't think I've ever tried mutton, nor even seen it for sale.

    Seeing mutton for sale is so rare one might believe it's illegal. It isn't, but NObody sells it. Probably because nobody buys it. I used to be able to get mutton at a little cafe normally visited by Basque sheepherders, but the Basques went away, and so did the cafe - along with the mutton.

    I'm told there's a restaurant in the Carolinas somewhere that specializes in mutton BBQ. It may be the only one in the US.

    Lamb is popular enough to be expensive, but not mutton. Nor can you buy goat, either kid or adult. And kid is even better than lamb. If folks tried it, they'd switch.
    I may be a bit crazy - but I didn't drive myself.

    mutton is an adult sheep, hogget is an adolescent sheep meat, lamb is a yearling, most places will sell any and all as lamb {wrongfully}

    goat is referred to as mutton in middle east countries

    Goat is the most widely eaten red meat in the world. Darn near everywhere but here. Sheep (of any age) is a close second. Neither violates any religious proscription I'm aware of except for those who prohibit any meat at all.

    Goat is delicious, and I wish it were sold here in the US.

    Never tried to eat mutton and never intend to.

    Guess nobody's ever been to the Rez.
    Indians grow sheep out here to supplement their casino income.
    The entire Northwest corner of nM is sheep country; folks park on the side of the road & sell fat lamb, fresh mutton & live sheep (and rugs, jewelry, sandpaintings, sodies & Chile).
    Nothin' beats a Navajo Taco; beans, cheese, Chile & mutton in a frybread shell!
    Sig220's gonna miss most of that unless he swings down to see the only point in the US, common to four states.

    I ate mutton once when invited to dinner at a friends house several years ago.

    Initially, it tasted pretty good the first bite or two but when it started getting room temp I noticed a strange "film" coating the roof of my mouth.

    What really killed my experience was when my friend passed me the mint jelly!!

    Yuuuuucky guuuuucky!

    I thought the mint jelly was for scrubbing down your teeth and tongue to get rid of the mutton coating! Darn! I forgot my toothbrush![xx(]
