Disc It Elk cropped imageThis marks the first time an elk has ever tried to kick me in the throat after it died.  All kinds of living things have threatened me with a good swift kick–mules, my dad, the judge, that nun at my pre-school–but up until now, never a dead animal. I know what you’re thinking, and you can put away the shotgun. It wasn’t a zombie elk. But hey, better luck next time, zombie fans.

The dead elk in question was ground into burger patties and the kick was courtesy of the spicy goodness infused within it thanks to some chorizo and special seasoning. See, Mike Frison stopped by Disc-It for a cooking demo using his Fri-B-Que Seasoning on some amazing Elk and Chorizo Burgers. You can see the demo here or if you just want the recipe for yourself, here you go:
