Brahma bulls have a hump. Can I eat it?

What is the hump on a Brahma bull made of, anyway? Given that I consider cattle to be the most delicious of our animal pals, would I enjoy a fresh-grilled Brahma bull hump?

According to the Britannica, the hump is fat and cartilage.... yummy!

From what I remember of seeing a few Brahama bulls in Florida when I was a child, the hump appeared to be very fatty - it jiggled when the animal moved. Don't know how much you enjoy fatty meat - I don't. And it is very possible that I am wrong - my last viewing of a Brahama in the field was over 30 years ago.

I dunno. But unless you accept that Cow Humps* go to waste, they must be used for something. Chances are you have already come contact with a Cow Hump product.

I've had a taste. It was chewy, but pretty bland.

Ugg. I don't know why, but this thread has made me slightly nauseous. And I'm a guy who's eaten hoof, bull dick, bull balls and cow udder.

There had to be either a bet or tequila involved. Please tell me there was a lot of tequila involved for you to eat a hoof.

Neither. There was religious conviction involved, which is ultimately more effective than bets, dares AND alcohol at getting people to do stupid things. Do I need to start an "Ask The Guy Who Was A Mormon Missionary In Ecuador For Two Years" thread?

Yesterday my neighbor gave me some pig ears with directions on how to cook them. She's an old black lady from the south.
First, wash and scrape any excess hair off them. (I know, ugh)
Then boil them in water with salt and vinegar. The vinegar was for your 'blood', which I assumed meant chloresterol reduction.
Well, I followed directions and they came out terrible. Just grissle and fat, as I thought they would be.
Then I fried them in oil and tried them again. The taste was ok, but still just grissle.
Tossed them in the garbage. My first and last pig ear adventure.

Anyone who has eaten Jello has eaten hoof.

Okay, let's say I'm stranded in the desert, and I happen upon one of these beasts. Assuming I have a gun or there's a big rock handy, if I kill the camel, could I use his hump as a water supply? (I've always heafd that they store water in the form of fat in their humps.) Could I chow down on the raw fat and hydrate myself enough to survive?

When your body metabolises fats, water is one of the waste products - and that's (part of) what the camel does; it's not like you can just hack off a bit of hump and wring out some water - it's fat stored there, not water.

Perhaps a more amusing thread would be "What bizarre dishes have you fed the Mormon missionaries when they came to visit?"

What I meant was "Would my body get adequate hydration from eating the fat?" I knew you couldn't squish water from it like a sponge.

Of course, you could just drink the camel's blood, but that's just gross.

This place sells buffalo hump roasts. I don't know if buffalo is anything like a brahma bull, but it looks like a decent cut of meat, and they get $10/lb for it, so its not like it is pure fat.
