Better make that really low and slow, it's going to be a long swim from Africa and I have no sense of direction!
there's not much left of Florida north of Jacksonville, so from SA you'll want to turn right when you hit the coast, not left . . . . just for the 'in case' situation.....

don't laugh. here's what googlemaps says for Washington, DC to Tokyo, Japan:

36. Kayak across the Pacific Ocean Entering Hawaii
37. Continue straight 0.1 mi
38. Turn left onto Kuilima Dr 0.5 mi
39. Take the 3rd right onto HI-83 W 12.4 mi
40. Continue straight onto HI-99 S/Kamehameha Hwy 6.5 mi
41. Slight left onto HI-80 S/Kamehameha Hwy
42. Take the Interstate H-2 S ramp to Honolulu 0.2 mi
43. Merge onto I-H-2 S 7.9 mi
44. Merge onto I-H-1 E 4.7 mi
45. Take exit 13B toward Halawa Hts. Stadium 0.3 mi
46. Merge onto I-H-201 E 4.1 mi
47. Merge onto I-H-1 E 4.1 mi
48. Take exit 23 for Punahou St toward Waikiki/Manoa 0.2 mi

I can just see you riding a little donkey hauling a cart loaded up with a kayak on top!

Whoops! Better take that last cake off the cart....

I did lamb breast last weekend and slow roasted it with ras el hanout rubbed onto it. It was lovely and the slow roasting made all the fat come out yet the meat was still as juicy as you'd expect from lamb.

Hey Jenand, thanks for letting me know how it turns out roasted. If you could tell me exactly how you roasted it, I'll mimic your methods.

I slow cooked one in the Crock Pot today and here is what I turned out with:

1. Easily removed rib bones. Not so easily removed cartilage.

2. About 4 cups of beautiful, moist, awesomely flavored lamb meat.

3. Four cups of very loose but firm enough to lift with a fork; fat.

4. 3 quarts of broth that looks like its about 10% fat.

5. One pint of fat strained off the top of the broth.

I have the broth/fat in the fridge to separate tonight. Tomorrow, I'll remove the rest of the fat and pitch it all in the trash.

I'll end up with about 2.5 quarts of rich lambs broth and 4 cups of meat.

IMHO, not worth the effort. I won't be doing this one again.

I'll try an indirect cook in the BBQ maybe...

Worked out to $10 for 4 cups of meat and a lot of labor and cleanup.
