Shoot lunch ideas...

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

The 28th of December will be our shoot's annual charity day where guns are fined heavily for the merest misdemeanours, beaters and pickers up are robbed of their wages and followers have their pockets emptied - all in aid of a local children's hospice.

This year will be our third and they're getting better every year. We have very generous and charitable team of shoot members and the day has become a firm favourite across the whole season with everybody having a great time, the charity doing really well and the local landlady too!

We've been starting with the customary bacon roll at 8.30, taking elevenses of smoked salmon and scrambled egg off the side of a converted military wagon in the field, before returning to game curries cooked over fire pits to round the day off.

However this year, I'd like to change the menu a bit. I'm thinking turkey, stuffing and cranberry mini rolls for elevenses but out of ideas for the meal to finish the day.

A number of other local shoots kindly contribute pheasant, partridge, duck and venison so game meat isn't a problem and ideally I would like to cook something that can easily be cooked outside over fire pits and BBQs - casserole, stews, chilli etc etc to give a bit of theatre whilst we're finishing off the sloe gin.

Any aspiring chefs out there have any ideas please and also if anyone can think of anything better than turkey rolls for elevenses, I'd be grateful for ideas.

The whole group will number approx. 35-40

Many thanks

Iaindp

Remember that as it's a few days after Christmas people might be a bit fed up of turkey (though I could eat it all day long). What about a large ham / gammon joint with pickles and such?

I'm with ditchman - got to be good sausages though, no Tesco garbage.Sausage rolls (home made) with Caramelised Apple or Onion Chutney cooked inside are amazing.

Mince up some pheasant or duck into them as well - Bit of supermarket puff pastry and they really are dead easy to knock out

Given the access you have to different meats you could do one of those multi bird/meat roasts for your main meal.  Scott Rea did a video on it a while back on YouTube.

Good ideas guys, given the limited cooking facilities (and ability) a winter BBQ of game meat burgers sounds good. What sides would you like if you were given burgers at the end of a shoot day?

Chocolate sprout truffles....love that!

So far this season I have done Pigeon and pork burgers and Pheasant fajitas on the BBQ for our shoot lunches. Both went down extremely well, the kids hoovered the fajitas up like they had never seen food before!

That sounds good. I was thinking venison burgers or sausages.
