    I like either one fried with smashed taters & milk gravy, creamed corn, and biscuits.

    Rabbit backstrap is some of the best tasting meat you will ever eat. Although, it is generally accepted that you don't eat wild rabbit before the first hard freeze.

    Been thinking on this for a while. My is, season up or brine overnight, wrap with bacon, give them a good rest in the smoker for an hour or two. Take them out ,wrap in foil or put in a D.O. with liquids, spices and veggies if wanted and continue cooking in foil or covered oven until tender. Like I said, Just My . Just make sure your season for taking wild game is open and you do it legally. And make a gravy with the drippings in the D.O. if wanted.

    all good ideas!!

    i was thinking of the brine thing and doing a rabbit like i do a chicken, on the weber, indirect heat, but no skin to protect the meat concerns me, bacon wrapped....hmm or maybe some pork /sheep caul fat??


    i could alway grind them up and make sausage, you add pork and can make sausage out of anything....even geese (blech!!)
