Hangikjöt, traditional Icelandic smoked lamb, is still made over a fire fueled by excrement from the very same creature—perhaps not literally, but it’s possible.” The book of Exodus tells us not to boil a kid in its mother’s milk, but there’s no prohibition against smoking it over its mother’s dung.
