With the excitement of two stories I have before me I’ve decided to put them together starting off with “A Giant Appears” followed by “Don’t Lose Focus“. I have no doubts both will peak your interest.

“A Giant Appears” In confinement there are certain creatures whose growth are determined by the space allowed in its habitat. Giants will reach a certain size and for survival purposes the growth of the beast will cease or it finds a way out. Fortunately for those that know and have grown to love this giant I write about, it is refusing to be contained and has found an escape.

For all of us that seek out and gleam the prepper/survival information that seems to be flooding the internet it is important that you know one if its biggest players is making a huge announcement. “The beast has escaped” A favorite among many, American Preppers Radio/Prepper Broadcasting will be moving to a 24/7 format.

Giant120x120In just a week or two this popular live primetime broadcaster of such notable shows as The Homestead Honey Hour, The Doom and Bloom Hour, I Am Liberty, The Human Path and several others will be expanding to a new 24/7 format. Beside the 12 popular shows already broadcasting, this new format will include more than 30 other great names with the information you want to hear. Great names like Jack Spirko, Lisa Bedford the Survival Mom, Mike the Gardener, Prepper Recon, Amy Alton, and The Survival Podcast. The list is big and it keeps growing. There will also be music, prepper related news clips and much more broadcasting intermittently between shows, 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

This new format is a big change for the producer who has been advising his hosts to make the change known through their respective nightly shows. The change and the build up to it are very important as their will now only be one place to catch all the live shows listeners have come to love “Prepperbroadcasting.com”. You can see the list growing by going to the show schedule at prepper broadcasting or take a peek at our new schedule still in bete testing HERE.

When the flip happens PrepperBroadcasting will be severing ties with its former host Blogtalk Radio. This means it is imperative that those listeners who target the shows through blog talk have to be informed that those voices will only be available at PrepperBroadcasting.com after the switchover.

With all of this change you can still expect the same great hosts you have come love and discover many more. The producer and his Web Master of WolfeBlog.net are also boasting, better sound quality and performance, limited ads with music and highlight Prepper news of the day between shows and soon to come “Short Wave Transmission”. Don’t forget the popular live chat that will be open all day where those of like minds can visit, and share ideas while listening to their favorite broadcasts. You can also hear more details in a short interview about the rising giant included in the player below.

Doomsday: Would You Survive?

Andrew’s Note: We all know we’re prepping for everyday, not doomsday but it’s still a cool infographic!

In the distance it watches me

Bathing in the street light, yet incomprehensibly dark

Deceptively human in form it beckons me

I must have run all day, weak

It calls me through generations of sin

I move closer and it tugs at my every vice

I know its wrong but still I approach

Under its dark robe I recognize the cloven hoof

Still I move forward

The spell is broken by a white flash of innocence

My son beyond the Demon

He is running to Daddy but the beast is between us

The choice

Do I open robe and invite my son in

Into the pleasure, the excess, the satisfaction of sin, or

Do I strangle the Demon under the street light

Ask me some questions on REDDIT IAMA

I thought it necessary to inject the I AM Liberty brand of reality into your preparedness plans tonight.

We buy night vision goggles, gillie suits, scopes, freeze dried foods, fruit trees, machetes, radiation detectors. The overlooked question is what’s on my mind.

What is your survival mechanism?

Not instinct or instrument. What is it that you need to get through the week. What refreshes you. What surges your adrenaline and takes you out of reality for a brief moment?

This is your survival mechanism. The counter balance to your weekly stress level.

You better prepare to have that escape or I believe you will only expedite a breakdown. Caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, running, sex, food, gambling, gaming, drugs, just name a few.
I am challenging you to bring your survival mechanism to light on I AM Liberty tonight.

Now I have had my share of out of this world venison and wild game stews but I just thought it would be nice to bring some interesting recipes to the forefront. The meat that we hunt and bring back to “camp” or home is of the best quality available. Working in some high level Philadelphia restaurants has taught me a lot about how to prepare these options with great success.

figduck

I am not saying your wife or kids are going to change their minds about eating Donald but if you can get them to take a bite of the incredible Pan Roasted Duck Breast with figs, honey and fresh thyme they may never go back to yard bird. Anyhow give em a try and see what you think. Remember these are recipes not laws. If you hate Juniper don’t put it on your venison because the guy from I Am Liberty said to!

Venison

Juniper Berry Crusted Backstrap

Put this rub on your beautiful backstrap and either grill or back this thing at a high heat until you get it where you like your venison. I will look for a nice medium rare to medium but that’s just my choice.

¼ cup of juniper berries
½ cup of crack black pepper
1 teaspoon of fresh thyme leaves
1 teaspoons of ground allspice
1 tablespoon of salt

Bust it all up in the food processor and coat your kill with a little oil just before cooking.

Duck

Pan Seared Duck Breast with Figs and Honey

To me nothing says Fall is coming like this dish

Score your duck breasts by slicing through the fat just a bit. I do sort of a diamond look. Marinate your duck breasts in good neutral oil, thyme leaves and a few bashed up figs. Marinate for a couple of hours.

Heat your skillet till on high heat till she begins to smoke a bit. Place your duck breasts in skin down and immediately cut your heat down to medium low. This blast of heat followed by a slow “roast” will give you great crispy duck. Feel free to baste the flesh side of the bird with the hot fat that will be pouring off the bird. After about 5 minutes you can flip the bird and cut off the heat in the pan. Let it rest for another 3 minutes. This should give you a nice medium cooked breast. Of course duck breasts come in all shapes and sizes so it its not cooked enough……..cook it longer.

Drizzle it with some good local honey and halved figs. Or you can roast the figs in the honey or you can skewer figs and grill them.

Goose

Orange and Chinese Five Spice

One New Years Eve I purchased a large goose from a local Amish market. Took it home rubbed it down with halved, squeezed oranges than dusted it with Chinese five spice. I stuffed the cavity with the squeezed oranges and a whole head of garlic.

Roast this at 400 degrees for 20 minutes per pound and you and the goose will be golden.

Buffalo

Buffalo Burger

The Burger is simple you know how to make a burger. But if you go through the trouble of killing one of these beasts and hauling it do me a favor don’t spoil the great taste of the meat with A1, Worcestershire sauce or any other mix of offensive herbs and spices. Patty up your ground buffalo and be liberal with the salt and pepper. Nothing more.

Pheasant

 Chipotle BBQ

This was a recipe that my father stumbled upon when his friend at work gave him a few pheasants to take home. I have adapted the chipotle barbecue sauce and made it my own.

2 cups tomato sauce
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp yellow mustard
1 small can of chipotle chilis with adobo.
Puree your chilis and the adobo sauce than combine with the remaining ingredients and cook on a medium heat for 10 minutes

Mop this on your bird the whole time you grill it. I prefer to hack the pheasant in half and cook over a nice medium heat until the meat is tender in the legs and breasts.
