Before the last presidential debate, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, sat down to do a Facebook Live video in front of his Big Green Egg (and other smoker) and talked about not only his favorite things to smoke, but also hunting for his food.

The billionaire said that he began hunting four or five years ago and he prefers to eat what he kills.

“Half of the joy is things taste better when you make them yourself, and they taste doubly better when you’ve hunted the animal yourself. Whether you’re fishing for the salmon, or going hunting for a boar, that’s a big part of it. You feel more connected to what you’re doing, to what you’re eating, and you cook it yourself and it’s this whole experience,” he said in the 30-minute video interchange with fans.

“It’s a good way to feel connected to nature,” he said, adding, “I feel like if you’re going to eat meat then you should be a part of getting, you should get to know where it comes from.”


Who would have the thought Mr. Zuckerberg, with all his leftist ideals would be a hunter.

Despite removing guns from Facebook, (and a list of other things) It’s hard not to respect a fellow hunter and meat smoker.
