My first smoked rabbit

  1.  This is my rabbit, one domestic,one wild. I used xjcamaro's brine to soak it in over night but added to it 1c apple juice and 1/4c pure maple syrup. Smoked for two hours with cherry and apple at 220 degrees. Maybe this will get posted. I have to say it was mighty tasty. Domestic rabbit

    Im a little late on this, but that rabbit looks great and just the way i like it. You will never cook rabbit any other way after that!
  15. Thanks xjcamaro, it was very good rabbit. My neighbor that tried some said it was some of the best he ever ate. I'll give him the brine recipe when he gives me a couple more rabbits [​IMG]
  16. not a good idea. if you teach them how to cook it. they will not give you any more. i made that mistake with a buddy and deer.

    happy smoken.

  17.  You know,

       Maybe you're right. think I should hold out for a years worth of rabbit  [​IMG]
