I liked it when I was young, with salt on it. Too bitter for me now though.
The butter wouldn't melt so we put it in a pie
Yes. We still brand cattle in Montana

I have about a thousand of those blooming in the yard at this moment.
From the smoke, I take it that they are branding the poor moo-cow?
Fresh morels , butter, bacon while camping. Life is good. Yes those were steaks on the hoof.
Always been cautious of picking fungi while camping, are there any closely related (visually) that you need to be careful of?
nothing around here you would confuse with morels. We were picking on a forest fire burn that occurred last summer.
“When gathering morels for the table, care must be taken to distinguish them from the poisonous "false morels", a term loosely applied to describe Gyromitra esculenta, Verpa bohemica, and other morel lookalikes. Although false morels are sometimes eaten without ill effect, they can cause severe gastrointestinal upset, loss of muscular coordination (including cardiac muscle), or even death. Incidents of poisoning usually occur when they are eaten in large quantities, inadequately cooked, or over several days in a row. False morels contain gyromitrin, an organic carcinogenic poison, hydrolyzed in the body into monomethylhydrazine (MMH). Gyromitra esculenta in particular, has been reported to be responsible for up to 23% of mushroom fatalities each year in Poland.”

That's why I stipulated "around here". I don't recommend picking and eating if you don't know what you're doing. Safety first.
just to be clear. On the left is a giant tasty morel. In the middle is a false morel, but they won't kill you if you don't eat too many. On the right is the poisoned ones. Hope this is helpful.
