I found it easier to split them down the middle and remove the shell. That way none of the meat sticks to the shell. Smoke at 250F for 4 hours. After the first 2 hours wrap in tinfoil. Serve with pinto beans, potato salad and jalapeno pepper.Firing up the smoker. Cook them in the shell like an oyster?
And pineapple. Never forget pineapple!I found it easier to split them down the middle and remove the shell. That way none of the meat sticks to the shell. Smoke at 250F for 4 hours. After the first 2 hours wrap in tinfoil. Serve with pinto beans, potato salad and jalapeno pepper.
OPinapple Opossum is a thing. Best to corn feed them for a while of course. They have trashy ways. Hardshells are just like Opossum, so if you venture this way, perhaps you can at least sample some Opossum sausage. But the old ways are dying so hurry.Y’all crack me up!
Fresh road kill isn't unlawful is it? Badger appears to be a gourmet delight in England.Me to Big Lou!
I've got the same problem with Badgers but they are a protected species here. So even if they had a shell we couldn't cook them. Plus I have no idea what a Badger would taste like....chicken may be?
Lol- you reminded me of the old primitive baptist church in Elam, Alabama. The whole congregation was senior, and the really elderly were prone to salting the food up because their taste buds were fading. Talk about some mystery food. I had casserole that was indeterminant by sight and taste.All I can say is that when we are invited to a "pot luck" dinner at a church, or to a "cook out" at a neighbors, I make sure I recognize the meat. Many people think I am a vegetarian . . . .
Wow! With all those rules and regs Badgers must be very tasty indeed. And just think how tasty English bears must have been to be all eaten up centuries ago. I don't think armadillos or possums can compare with badgers or bears in the taste department, otherwish there wouldn't be so many of them.No it isn't Chuck, but Badger road kill here generally makes such a mess of the animal it wouldn't be worth bothering with. So it tastes like pork - or would that be Armadillo? The link also states that it also compares to bear meat. Hmmm, I'll have to pass on that, they became extinct here circa 500BC.
I've just found this link....
Bear is as greasy as the poorest cuts of cartlidge meat, wanky, and generally gross. Perhaps the bear I ate had eaten a leftist, but regardless, I shall not eat another.When the UK government 'protects' something it tends to be very thorough. Badger setts are generally well hidden and those that know where they are tend to keep quiet about their locations. There are two setts within a short walking distance of where I live, I don't know where they are yet but I've seen badgers in my garden and have the evidence of their visits. They can be very destructive when looking for food.
I don't think I could eat a bear, they look so cute!
