Andy Moeckel aka the “ Flip Flop Guy” known for his delicious wild game cooking style and family marinade recipe. Andy is an accomplished hunter/fisherman & was born and raised in West Marin, California. After a troubled youth, Andy turned his life around and began sharing his Grandfather’s cooking when it was passed down to him by his father on his 25th birthday. Andy’s Grandfather Al Giddings was a Fish & Game warden, WWII Veteran and responsible for adopting the Portuguese sheep rancher “flip flop” style of cooking with venison and crafting a delicious marinade recipe.
On location in Sonoma at West Coast Archery’s Last Chance Broadhead Shoot, Andy introduced me to the venison flip flop before we recorded the podcast. I was fortunate to try Axis deer from Maui, which I had heard so many great things about. Tasted absolutely fantastic and it's some of the best meat I’ve ever had! We go in great detail how Andy cooks this way and where he has been sharing this way of cooking for twelve years. It’s now taking him all over the country to share this experience with everyone.
Honored to catch up with Andy for this podcast and experience the Flip Flop. Andy also tells us about his favorite Marin County and USA restaurants. Be sure to listen at the end for some well spoken life advice. Can’t wait to see Andy again and cook with him next time. If you get a chance to see Andy doing the flip flop, it’s a must!
