For me, there is truly nothing like it. Raw flesh especially. From ripping it out of the packaging to slapping it down on the cutting board. I can hardly keep myself from teaing into it. I love everything about it. Massaging spices and oils into it. The sound it makes when it first hits the grill and especially tearing into it with my fingers and teeth. There is nothing quite like eating a whole chicken and being able to hunt out all the nooks and crannies of meat and marrow with your tongue and fingers. Or having a tug of war with the vertebrae of a lamb over the esophagus. Oh man, that rubbery reward was worth the effort. My new favorite is sucking the spinal fluid from the vertebrae of a lambs neck. There is nothing quite like it.
