FROM MAINE: Taste Test - Cow versus Yak

From a Maine neighbor and former "yak virgin."

Official Maine Yak Report.

Grilled to medium rare along with a couple of well-marbled rib eyes roughly the same thickness.

10 minutes direct high (5 minutes/side) + 3 minutes/side indirect medium.

Family taste test results:

1. Yak had a more distinctive flavor than beef. Daughter Lily said, "Yummy!" I concur.
2. Yak was slightly tougher but still nice and tender.
3. Grilled up similar to beef.

Unanimous thumbs up!

Best wishes for future yakkin'.
