I like them in a jambalaya, that's the best way. Or smother them in a brown gravy and cook em' until the meat is falling off the bones. Either way, I'm Cajun...I can make a fart taste good!

I like them.

I'd eaten them years ago as a kid, but couldn't remember what they tasted like. I started squirrel hunting last fall to get out in the woods and maybe scout a bit for deer and picked up a few.

Here's what I did:
I quartered them and boiled them for an hour with salt, pepper, onion, and celery for sesasoning (the goal of this was to tenderize). Then I barbecued them on the grill for an appetizer. Excellent! Good enough that I'm looking forward to squirrel opener this coming Tuesday. Even traded for a better .22 and scope yesterday to get ready.

Like any food, it can be prepared poorly, but overall, I think it is great. Better than rabbit, IMO. Fried like chicken or stewed in BBQ sauce.

Part of me would like to try the brain gravy that I have read about, but I understand it is risky now, and should be avoided.
