Working with a bunch of media people, apparently I hold the record for having lived in the most different states. Every move means leaving behind some type(s) of food I miss. And every move usually means I'm also going to get turned on some foods I'll love. It sure has been the case in coming to Wyoming. Here are just a handful of examples. I can tell you that most of them just can be found anywhere else - at least not this good.

Lamb – Passed down from some of Wyoming’s first residents, the Shoshone, aka “sheep eaters.” The Cowboy State is fourth in the country for sheep raising?”

Elk and BisonHealthier and better taste. I never ate a lot of hamburgers, but I’ll do these burgers anywhere they’re on the menu. And in Wyoming, that’s a lot of places.

Trout – Nuff said. Brown and cutthroat is just better in Wyoming. Just don’t count on great seafood here.

White Chili – Once leaving New Mexico to move east, I missed green chili. Now where else would I find this great stuff? See video below. It may not be exactly Wyo-style but it looks close.

Taco Johns Potato Oles – When I first moved here, someone said, “It’s like they’re seasoned with crack.” I think they are – crack, or something illegal - geniuskitchen claims to have their recipe. I don't know, you tell me.

Bonus: Rocky Mountain Oysters – Just kiddingl. I would not really miss those at all.
