Game Meats (moose)
Asked by Dayle on Monday, December 06
I have a freezer full of moose meat - it's very lean but good, but chewy (similar to buffalo). I'm looking for a great way to prepare a pulled meat (moose) sandwich with barbecue sauce, similar to pulled pork.

I haven't cooked any moose but it sounds great! I can tell you what is standard for pork or beef, which should at least get you in the right ball park of sous vide time and temperatures.
<br />For a more pulled pork type preparation, I normally cook sous vide pork shoulder at around 137F - 141F for 24 to 48 hours. It's really more of a "chopped pork" but it's super moist and tender and everyone loves it. If you do it at 155F for 24 to 48 hours you should get a more traditional doneness and texture.
<br />Let us know how it goes, I'd love a report posted in our forums, I'm sure everyone would love to hear the best way to do sous vide moose!
