5.0 out of 5 stars A one-of-a-kind cookbook June 26, 2005
Love him or hate him, the rock & roll legend Ted Nugent is probably the most outspoken advocate for "blood sports" today. And when he turns to the domestic side of hunting -- the preparation and cooking of wild game meat -- you'll find it a lot harder to hate him because you'll love the dishes he prepares and the way he talks about them.

The attitude of this book is "Life is a BBQ" (a direct Nugent quote), and most of the 22 chapters are followed by one or more recipes. Underlying the cooking theme is Nugent's reverence for wildlife and his unapologetic explanation of what it takes for wildlife to thrive in the modern world. Nugent argues that habitat destruction, not the hunter, poses the greatest threat to wildlife; that the cruelty of nature offers no reason for man not to participate; that hunters are the greatest conservationists; and that wildlife is a renewable resource. These are truths that hunters should shout from the mountaintops.

Kill It & Grill It is worth having in your kitchen. It's a unique cookbook for sure.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Man's Cookbook December 28, 2003
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As my husband loves to hunt wild game, I bought this book for him as a farce. However, it has turned out to be a great purchase. I was at a loss as how to clean and cook wild game until "Kill It and Grill It" came along. This is the only cookbook I've bought that my husband hasn't complained about and it's an entertaining and "colorful" read as well.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Limited View January 5, 2010
This book is part cookbook, part 'Nuge stories and philosophy. Of course, you'd expect that with anything from Ted Nugent.

It's not a very thick book. It has recipes for a varied array of game, but most animals only get a couple recipes, which is a shame, since 1 kill will frequently yield huge amounts of meat. Do you want to make the same thing with your entire deer? The recipes, themselves, are sound. They advise treating the meat in the correct ways to maximize flavor and tenderness. The problem is that they're a limited selection of all you can do with game. I would have preferred a description of how each animal's meat is different from the common, domesticated relatives. For instance, how is a deer different from an elk, a cow, a lamb, etc? They're all closely related, but the different fat contents, diets, muscle biology, etc. mean they taste and are cooked differently. For fowl, the range is even greater: chickens are nothing like ducks or ostriches, for example. Even wild and domestic turkeys are drastically different. Also, like their domesticated relatives, the different cuts of game meat are good for different purposes and methods. This book doesn't go into those differences.

In short, while the recipes will work for the hunter who can't cook his kill into something palatable, they won't give him a very deep understanding of properly cooking game.

5.0 out of 5 stars YUMMY August 22, 2003
There is NOTHING better than being in the outdoors and bagging your own chow, be it mammalian or fish. Ted and Shemane have HIT THE MARK! The recipes are EXCELLENT and being a predator myself, grilling a tasty rack of deer with Ted's recipe for marinade DON'T GET ANY BETTER! Rock on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chill Out! August 1, 2002
As an avid predator and self taught chef I think this book is a grand slam home run. If you do not like this book then you are a prima-donna hunter or a scavenger. Talking turkey is what hunting and gathering is all about. Kill it, dress it, chill it and eat it. Most meathheads have other people kill and prepare their animals. I call those people scavengers. Very much like the vulture. Predators, are those of us who collect our food ourselves and prepare it properly for the fabulous feast. This book is the ultimate interpretation of that process. From beginning to end the "Nugents" have teamed up to put everything into perspective. Having properly declared hunting a sacred event, they take you on a safari of the mind, soul and body. If you believe, as I do, that hunting is a lifestyle, not just a hobby, then this book is for you. On the other hand, if you are a yellow bellied sap sucker who brings their zip lock bags to the buffet line for early bird specials, don't waste your time trying to understand the real world. It is already too late for you. The Nugents talk straight from the soul and shoot even straighter. Their way of cooking is born out of respect for the animal and dignity for the hunt. It is a real pleasure to be invited into someones home through a book instead of a television. This is really a magical mystery tour of the senses. I have tried some of the formulas and have enjoyed the wholesome approach to killing it and grilling it. In a canned world filled with fast foods and fat people, exploring the alternatives should be mandatory in the school of life. On the other hand, the more people eating boffo bugers at dingy drive throughs, The less I have to deal with hobby hunters who kill a wonderful animal for a photograph. Read more ›

By A Customer
I have buddies on the Chesapeake Bay who hunt and cook wild game. Although I've enjoyed many a dinner at their tables (venison, goose, duck... all served with innumerable oysters), I still didn't know how I truly felt about the issue of hunting for food. The Nugents' book helped me over the hurdle by making a sensible, informed argument for enjoying wild game, and presenting it deliciously. The Coca-Cola Venison Stew is a must-try... tastes far better than it sounds! Great book.
