Subject: BS: I ate a bodhran - mmm, tasty!

Last night for tea I had bodhran greek-style, on a bed of salad with feta and olives.

Tastes like mutton (an underated meat everyone's forgotten because Tesco's don't sell it), and made for a fine meal.

It has it's detractors, but that is what I call a verstile instrument.

Nice recipe, but it's really hard to beat the flavor of a bodhran slow-cooked on a spit over an open fire. Just make sure to keep the spit turning so it gets done evenly all around. You can use an electric rotisserie (Do they still make such a thing?) if you have one. A simple basting sauce of melted butter or olive oil with minced garlic helps keep the bodhran moist. If it's a relatively new bodhran that still smells stongly of billy goat, you'll probably want to let it soak overnight in a suitable wild game marinade.

Restraint can be good, G-S, but be careful.

Welcome anyway, don't let the humour (or lack thereof) put you off. There are some real wits, and real brains, to be found here and we are mostly harmless, though sometimes witless.

however nobody mad enough to eat his bodhran.....as yet!

one day they will sample evrything and nobody will have to play. Or when somebody does play - they'll say its not as good as the sample - 'ere mate press this button and you an hear what you should sound like.

the chieftains will sit round in a circle smiling as though they shared intimate secrets, and pressing buttons.

And someone will say, you can't drink soup out of your drum machine, and Van Morrison will say that gives me an idea for a song:-

You can't drink soup out of a drum machine

Beware all who venture to eat a Bodhran!
I had one for my evening meal on Monday and since then have been suffering this deeply repetative, uncomfortable sound from my stomach. I am told it is also likely to be the source of constipation, should it turn from endways on to full face as it makies its transit through the alimentary canal.
I am also informed that when it eventually exits, it makes a beautiful sound as it ricochets off the side of the pan....probably the only good sound it is capable of so they say.
Best wishes, Mike.

My Bodhran, named "Hairy" is my pet. Sent to me several years back by Albert Alfonzo--not his real name--and he has nice white-ish hair I like to pet. So I don't think I'll be eating him soon. Especially since Albert was in the hospital right after dealing with my "Hairy" due to an allergic reaction to some bug or something which is found on goats.

Kaleea's post brings an important point to mind. If you wish to roast a bodhran whose skin still has the fur on it, you must first parboil it to loosen the fur and then scrape it off using a spatula. Otherwise the roasting will result in a smell that will not disipate from the cooking area until 2085.

The other trouble with banjos is as you take the first bite from the neck...the strings spring round your own neck and can cause strangulation.....you then make a noise......similar to the one you make.........when you hear someone.........actually playing a banjo.

This fragrant rub is good on bodrhans, tambourines, banjos, and butterflied accordian.


1 Tbs. black peppercorns
1 Tbs. white peppercorns
1 Tbs. green peppercorns
1 1/2 tsp. coriander seeds
1 1/2 tsp. cumin seeds
1/2 tsp. hot red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

Toast the peppercorns, coriander, and cumin in a small skillet over medium heat, shaking the pan occasionally to prevent burning,3-5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat, cool the spices to room temperature, then mix with the pepper flakes and cinnamon.
Grind the spice mixture to a powder in a spice grinder or coffee mill. (The rub can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for several weeks.)

To Use: rub all surfaces of the prepared instrument with a generous amount of the spice mixture - wrap well in plastic film and refrigerate minimum of 6 hours or overnight. Barbecue or roast slowly, brushing with a sauce frequently to prevent drying out.

Y'all need to get out more. Start going to concerts by talented musicians, one of whom picks up the bodhran and does a long solo with fascinating changes of tempo, volume and pitch while the audience drinks in every sound.

The bodhran is one of the sexiest instruments around.

the bodrhan in the hands of a talanted player is incredible. I am more then pleased to know several such.

the bodrhan as normally encountered is an affront to anyone attempting to appreciate music. Many players equate volume with excellence, have no sense of rythmn whatseoever and pay no attention to anyone else playing when they do.

My bodhran was far too expensive to try out the recipes, so I thought a tambourine would make a fine replacement. How wrong can you be - the jingles just wont take the marinade, and get stuck fast between the teeth. Never mind, I'm going to try a banjo next and see how that turns out.
