In one ship that I served in on the Far East Station served up tinned sausages ,a product from Australia, not the round type that we were used to but triangular shaped,they had a taste of their own, some bright spark said that they were made from Kangaroo meat, after all these years I often wonder if he was right---what ever they put in them I for one enjoyed them and have often wondered if they are still being produced and are they available in the UK. Anyone else sampled these when out there?

Nah, those jump out of the tin when the lid comes off.

Used to carry ready-made hamburger patties from Australia to the USA.
Apparently, the USA laws at that time allowed pure beef patties to have a small percentage of 'other' meats incorporated into them and still be called 'pure beef'. Rumor had it that the 'other' from Oz was, in fact 'roo meat!
Of course, this is many years ago and laws change but my children, when small, would always want to bounce their burgers off the table to test whether the patties were from Down Under!

'Other meat' reminds me of a Hormel -the Spam people- product you can buy in Oz...'Picnic Ham'.
It contains 'mechanically separated chicken'... scary stuff

A friend of mine worked for a while in a modern meat factory in North Wales.
she has never eaten hot dogs or sausages or canned meat of any description since.
Her account of how the bones of chickens, pigs, turkeys etc are forced at high pressure through meat stripping machines, and the resultant glutinous mess is made into these products has put her off for life.
They reckon that mad cow disease originated in this method of meat production.

Palethorpes tinned triangular shaped sausages ready cooked staple luxury food
1958-1960 chatty chapmans tins around 5 lbs white label black writing open both ends push out cylinder of meat which then divided into triangular shaped vertical slices no skins quite tasty when heated. Not seen after 1960

"Picnic Ham" in Australia is the same as "Luncheon Meat" in the UK.

Spam gets its name from "Steam Pressed Animal Meat" or something similar.

According to my vegetarian cousin, that "Chicken loaf" stuff is made from all the red wobbly bits of a chicken minced up, bleached and pressed together. I think he thought he was putting me off.

Those tinned sausages went well with tinned tomatoes - probably nothing organic in either but they tasted great.

Close your eyes, think of England and eat up!

In sunny old Hull there is a butchers shop that imports special ingredients to make Aussie bangers (snags) from Sydney.He started this venture due to a request from some of the Aussie rugby league players over here and apparently he,s doing a roaring trade.

Most probably that is the "Golden Rule", slap on a bit of Tabasco, close your eye's and eat up. If you are not ill afterward's fine, most of the Cook's I came across were never without a ciggie in their mouth's.

I was going to ask you where it is John so I could make a beeline for it next time home but after reading Pat Kennedy's and Cueball's posting of meat processing methods I think I will stick to Bob Carvers.

You will be safe Ray,he just imports the herbs and spices and makes them with his own meat.If you google''Australian sausages Hull'' all the info in the HDM.

Roo meat in hamburger. True,, the change in U.S. health regulations resulted in a catastrophic drop in the returns to roo shooters as the only market remaining was pet food., The raw material in suasages and pies referred to in other posts is known in the trade as emulsified offal, sounds delicious doesn't it

The change in the FDA regulations regarding kangaroo meat resulted also in a boom in roo population which has still not been brought under control, or so I've heard!

Still think of, and laugh at, the Sydney 2JJ (I think) drive time 'advert' for pet food for your 'roo. 'Filled with nutritious terriers. Open the can and you can hear them barking'.
Even if I am a doggy person, I still like that one. Way back in the 70's

If I am not mistaken, Farrel Lines had purpose built reefer container ships built for the AUS to US run. According to the rumbling that I heard, they were specifically catering to the Golden Arches folks. Of course the rumor about them being Kangaroo meat was certainly rampant. Not sure about the percentage of beef to 'roo that was or was not acceptable. I do know that not too long after the runs stopped, MacDonald's was then advertising their burgers as 100% US beef. . . . .

In the '70s there was a massive stink about Australian beef exports to the US being switched for kangaroo meat - took the industry a long time to get over it.

I remember seeing Bear Line (I think) LASH ships in Tasmania (Burnie, I think) loading for the US - but have an idea they picked up potatoes there.

The following countries are allowed to make sausages:

UK
Germany
Spain

Everyone else should stop

As for bacon the following countries are allowed to produce
UK
Denmark (export only)
Holland

Again everyone else should stop with a special mention for North America where some sort of permanent ban should be enforced - using military force if required

Camp pie - horrible stuff, much worse than that godawful SPAM !
I think the 1970's meat scandal to USA was actually horse flesh put in with the beef. I believe it went on for years and yes, when discovered, it caused much long term problems in the meat industry here. I dont think roo meat could be mistaken for beef by either the texture, colouring or certainly not by taste - not at all sure about horse either .
Roo meat is now available in supermarkets here but its farmed meat, not freinds of Skippy out in the bush. Its a very healthy meat, low in all the thingies that make red meat unhealthy.

I quite like a Spam sandwich with mustard, its very tasty now and again.
However, in Guam they more or less live on Spam, per capita consumption is 16 cans per year, and in Hawaii, Mac Donalds have spamburgers on the menu!

There's a specialist deli about a half mile from me that sells all kinds of game including kangaroo, buffalo steaks, ostrich, crocodile and just about anything else you can think of.
I regularly shop there and haven't had anything I didn't like. Most of the meats are very lean and crocodile is not unlike chicken and they are farmed for their meat.

I used to buy the Kangaroo steaks from Coles supermarket, a tasty gamey lean meat that I enjoyed in spite of the family's accusations about eating Skippy.
I tried Emu at a Tauranga restaurant and again a nice experience.
Crocodile is available at a local boutique butcher so that is the next ambition.
If Kiwis would only get a taste for Possum we would save the forests from destruction by reducing a population that currently exceeds that of the sheep.

We went to a lot of expense here in Oz in developing the triangular shaped sausage. It was especially designed for maritime use so it wouldn't roll off your plate at sea.
