With the exception of a few exceptional cuts of beef, the meat you buy at the grocery store doesn’t taste like anything. Oh sure, they taste like whatever you season it with, but have you actually eaten a slice of store-bought pork or chicken plain, without even a bit of salt? It tastes like nothing. Do the same with game meat—be it waterfowl, upland birds, or big game—and see what you get. That’s not gaminess. That’s flavor, which most Americans have completely forgotten about.
