In this Backyard Life video, legendary outdoorsman Joe Thomas shares his personal moose chili recipe. It’s one of Thomas’ favorite fall recipes for both hunting camp and family get-togethers, namely because it’s both super easy to make and super tasty to eat.
“The credit goes to my mother-in-law, grandma Marlene, who’s created this dish, and it’s become my favorite,” Thomas says. “The only change I’ve made is she used beef and I like wild game, so I use moose meat.”
The moose meat being using in this batch came from one Thomas harvested in Newfoundland, Canada last year. It’s super lean with very little fat, which is how he prefers it. Although you can sub in just about any game (venison, antelope, etc.), Thomas says there’s nothing quite like moose meat.
