Good at that it’snot his first rodeo well then the Lambsgot a phone calloh is that you okay for the guys herethe time of slaughtering conjures upmemories of camaraderie amongst familyand friends more than the act itselfthis area is meant for slaughtering yeahokay that’s how it is slippery now they can let’s move big because of the linksoh so they see this slippery this is ahalal slaughter adhering to the tenantsof Islamic traditions of living in thehalal way we just faced the body to theMeccahmm and we say it’s just part of sayingin Quran this Muhammad in the name ofGod okay and then he starts flutteringalright bismillah[Music]the lamb is sectioned into eight piecesas a bonus the head and organs will betossed into oh these are the lungs thelungs and live in the hut so in order todo that we need to clean the blood from the okay so you just cut the heart inquarters quarters yeah and then you’regonna win it and there’s one way we needto clean the lungs oh oh how do you dothat and then you cut it for you smokersout there every time you smoke acigarette that’s exactly.
What’shappening to your lungs schewe the namethis dish shares throughout Oman butthat’s where the agreements end eachfamily has their own flavorful take onthe dish and here is no exceptionoh I think quite a little soursuper salty of course and then it’s likechilies in there right yes there ischili flakes and again human it’s almostlike some kind of spicy sour taco flavoryeah and it has a lot of garlic this isgonna be incredible already I can tellthis is just one lamb but keep in mindduring Eid they might prepare up to 10at one time let’s just get tons of thaton there that stuff is so good we add alittle bit more salt and give it alittle massage the meat is almost readyfor the pigs but first it must bewrapped in a way that allows it to cookwithout burning this is the sec made ofthumb please leave this one mmm and it’sdamp yeah because if you put it theredry it’s gonna burn ah and we have thebanana leaves that keeps it from burningalso so you don’t use aluminum foil noat all just so we’re gonna put thebanana leaves first as like a coatingyeah and then we put the meat insideI have all the pieces inside man.
This isso interesting it’s so much more porousthan I expected because the leaves arejust kind of loosely on top you canstill see the meat and this is also notlocked so there’s gonna be some Americango in and out the liquid can go in andout shake it fold it lock it with wireand now it’s ready for the pig the moment has come this is all fieryhot and ready yes do you want me in totoyeah we give you the owner I’m justgonna yeah drop it from here that’s okayhere we go five four three two one boomright in the middle yeah job okay sowe’re putting on the lid sand going ontop look at this there’s like theselittle plumes of smoke we want this tobe airtight no air getting out heredo you guys sing a song will you do this so that’s it yeah we come back 24 hoursfrom now we’re gonna dig this up andthen we’re gonna have our delicious andtasty issue.
