Our State Fair is a great State Fair… From cream puffs and fried stuff on a stick to micro brews and beersicles, there is a ton of great food and drink to be enjoyed.

Each year, the vendors seems to try to one-up each other and themselves by creating the most outrageous concoctions.

This year, the Mountain Man Bloody Mary Burger from the Exotic Meats stand caught our attention.

Mountain Man Bloody Mary Burger

The Mountain Man Burger, for the uninitiated, contains “5 Animals in 1 Patty!” Yes, that’s right, the patty was comprised of Antelope, Bison, Boar, Elk and Venison blended in a 1/3 lb. patty, seasoned like a bloody mary. The patty is topped with a special bloody mary sauce and celery salt, and served on a gourmet bun. It was then garnished with a skewer of celery, pickle, olive, bloody mary cheese curd, bloody mary meat stick and marinated mushroom.

So, we shelled out the $13 for this delicacy and gave it a try.

We have to admit, we were a little disappointed. While not too gamey-tasting (like I was expecting), the patty seemed small and quite dry. There was definitely more bun than meat. The best part about this was the garnish, but we would have rather had that on top of a real bloody mary, rather than this burger–especially for the price tag.

Sorry, guys. We really wanted to like it! Next time, you’ll find us sampling a drink instead.
