    Only if you like a gamey taste, IMO.

    Very good idea as it allows the protein-digesting enzymes to tenderise the meat and develops a deeper, more savoury flavour.

    I might try it. Get a rack of lamb and see what happens.

    Guessing it would make it taste more like mutton, but tender as lamb. Interesting idea. Keep us informed :) See you in 3 weeks....
