Be careful, a friend of mine got a dog that turned out to be a crazy cujo acting fool. One day it decided to pen them in the house. My friend threw a buscuit out the back door and when ole cujo went for it he shot him in the head! lol
That biscuit sure cost ol' Cujo a lot. Lol.

So I drop off the wife to have dinner and then see the late showing of the final Twilight movie with her girlies last night. The ladies bought their tickets about two months ago and got to watch the previous installment and the final one back to back. Talk about a mad house. The parking lot was overflowing onto other businesses and shoulder of the road. Pure Chaos. I pick her up at midnight and it took fifteen minutes to get out of the parking lot, lol. Anyway, I had to stop for three racoons on the road about a mile from home, they were in absolutly no hurry. I tapped the horn and one looked up at the headlights like he was saying "chill out dude", lol. I was waiting for one to wash the windshield and hold his paw out!

I have not eaten anything except deer meat lately that my relative gave me. I have never and will never eat a nasty dead donkey eating Opossum. LOL But in the old days, my granny would cook a raccoon or an Opossum somehow and serve it with baked sweet potatoes. I passed. I think the Opossum is fairly greasy and I don't know about a raccoon. I passed on that too mainly because they looked too much like the Lone Ranger. LOL

A rabbit is more tender and just floured and fried like a chicken and served with mashed potatoes and biscuits and gravy. In Lexington for a while on Boardwalk Ave. was a "take off' restaurant called "Kentucky Fried Rabbit" lol. It did "take off" after a few months and closed. LOL My guess is that those were domestic rabbits.

Squirrels were a little more tough and was just boiled and added in a cream sauce. I never ate much of the tree rats either unless I was really hungry and we were out of Corn Flakes. lol

About the only way that I like deer meat is to do a quick boil of a chunk and then take it out and wash it again in a cold water and vinegar mix (not much vinegar), Slice it really thin, then serve it open faced like a beef manhattan on bread with mashed potatoes covered with McCormick's Brown Gravy mix. At that point, I can't tell any difference between that and an open faced roast beef Manhattan. Some folks call them "roast beef Combinations". My relative likes to butterfly and charcoal grill a chunk of deer tenderloin and fill the butterfly part with Bleu Cheese or Roquert cheese crumbles just before it is almost finished grilling. I tried it and it was okay but not my favorite. I have had deer cooked like a roast with new potatoes, onions, and carrots. I am told that they soaked in overnight in a milk and water mix to remove some of the wild taste.

I'm thinking marinade, spices, crock pot for a coon. Fried rabbit & squirrel, yes. I cooked some deer on top of the stove a year or so ago that was pretty dang good. I've got soft in my old age, don't really like the dressing part - it makes me sad. lol

A smoker is a good tool for game, it makes game tender and adds flavor.

Correction 225. It takes the extra 5 degrees to properly smoke fresh dog nuts, from Humpaburns vet friend. LMAO.

No, no, no, no,, the key temperature is 225 degrees! Holy french fried wildebeest, don't cook too low! The Green Egg, that's a sweet smoker but my cheap little Weber does a fine job at a third the price. Why I'm so poor, cooking outdoors is the only way I can afford a hot meal.

The wife did get a little, put off shall I say, when asked if I wanted to go see Twilight with the group and I told her,, if I wanted to watch a bunch of sparkly dudes suck on each other, I'd go to an Elton John concert.

Truthfully Humpaburn, the wife makes you do all the cooking and she won't allow your messy drunken butt in her kitchen. I don't blame her, I wouldn't cook for you either. Go for the Green Egg though. You need it when the wifes hungry relatives show up unexpectedly and begin chewing the legs on the dining table.
