Maybe it was the Montana air, or the fact that I had walked for so many hours and so many miles to earn it, but sitting down to eat this was a revelation. The sweetness and the saltiness and the dripping fat and the most tender breast meat I had ever sunk my teeth into, all made the perfect combination.

Buffalo is a great alternative to beef for people who want beefy taste without all the fat. Buffalo also has a sweeter flavor than beef, adding a little complexity to that burger or steak.

Not too long ago in Morocco, I had the extreme displeasure of devouring a sheep’s rich, flan-like breast. It’s a memory seared into my synapses like grill marks on a burger. So imagine my fear when my friends suggested we travel to Flushing, Queens (home to New York City’s...
