We had this delicious specialty during our outback trip visiting Uluru and learned how the Aboriginals prepare it. Sooooo delicious! Tastes a bit like lamb.

We learned how to make this in the bush the way the Aboriginals do it. They would usually do it with a whole kangaroo though :). Tastes incredibly delicious!
|Step 1||Ask your most trusted butcher for a kangaroo tail with (still the skin on).|
|Step 2||Make a bush fire on a sandy place. Get the fire going long enough to have burning charcoal.|
|Step 3||Put on fireproof gloves and bream the tail in the open fire for a few seconds. Then scrape the burned hair off with a knife.|
|Step 4||Take a shovel and dig a hole in the sandy ground that is 30cm deep and has the length of your tail.|
|Step 5||Fill the whole with a base layer of burning charcoal. Place the kangaroo tail on top and cover it with another layer of charcoal.|
|Step 6||Close the whole with sand and put a stone on that spot, so you know where it is and don't step on it accidently :).|
|Step 7||Depending on your charcoal and size of your tail, leave it for 1 - 1 1/2 hours.|
|Step 8||Open the hole and take the tail out. Cut into the skin carefully and peel it off starting at the top of the tail.|
|Step 9||Cut off any fat and serve it hot. For the proper Aboriginal experience, eat without fork and knife and just bite into it ;). ENJOY!|
