Welcome to the language of love, where bros and friends alike unite behind the grill and enjoy a meal of deliciously tender wild game recipes, perfectly grilled steak and each other’s company. You might be inclined to cook something romantic for someone special but be sure to grill something bromantic with your friends. Grilling is all about togetherness: enjoying the company of friends, cracking open a beer and conversing over good food. And to keep the bromance alive, heat it up. The 1500F grill, we mean. And, make it even more special by grilling up something wild! Wild venison, wild boar, wild sheep, wild goose and wild from the sea, lobster all have a specific season and are exclusive to certain months of the year. Wild game is all about bonding over the flame of the grill.


Best Wild Game Recipes


1. Venison Burger

Who doesn’t love venison? A short season means it is rare to find on the plate in front of you. Tender, gamey meat is deliciously seared at 1500F to grill up this tender pink meat. You’ve never tasted such a wild burger before. Enjoy your venison between two toasted buns and some wild bacon. Chow down!

2. Wild Boar

Pig is relatively abundant in some places and considered a pest in others. Probably the easiest meat to get a hold of year-round and yet still a top grill choice. With its fatty cuts, like the renowned pork belly, wild boar is usually preferred over farm-raised. This wild boar recipe

Not actual dog — a hot dog! An easy way to combine an American classic dish with the meats of its historically wild land. From lamb to deer meat, you can buy or make any kind of wild hot dog for a quick and delicious meal. With the time to spare, whip up this delicious red cabbage slaw for a picture perfect, mouth-watering wild dog.

4. Wild Sheep

Sheep are not usually a wild animal anymore (unless you live in New Zealand), but if you can get a hold of a wild one, count your lucky stars. Lamb is a specialty treat and if you can get some wild and lean lamb meat, you’re in for a treat. This recipe really enhances the flavors – you’ve got to try it.

5. Wild Goose

This European favorite is unfortunately not as popular in America. Hunting wild goose is a tricky sport, but if you can catch one, try this easy sous vide recipe. Lowand slow and then a quick sear gives you the most tender goose and crispy crust. Add orange slices to bring out the rare flavors of this beloved bird.

6. Wild Lobster

For some reason, lobster is less likely to be classified as wild game. But, if you put out your lobster crate in the ocean and catch some critters, you’ve got yourself a wild animal! Maine is widely known for their lobster season but you can find them on any coast. This lobster season, grill up some delicious red crustaceans on your Otto Grill with a simple butter sauce for a seafood dish that will be the talk of the party.
