Well here is a different one for me anyway, my Texan girlfriend's son came by to help me fix my TV cable because the reception was less than perfect. It turned out the tree squirrels had been chewing on my line. After we fixed that he mentioned that we ought to do something about the dozens of tree rats that live in my back yard. So after a few diet cokes and a half a can of air pellets we had 14 dead critters to deal with. The rest seemed to learn pretty quickly. To make a long story short, we ended up skinning and cleaning all those squirrels then rolled them in my standard rib rub. I tossed them in the smoker at 225 and just took a guess at a 2-1-1 smoke, the middle 1 hour in foil with an apple cider mop every forty five minutes they were out of the foil. I really wasn't expecting much and I had never tried squirrel meat before in my life, but after a brief moment of trepidation I took a bite and damn if that wasn't a tasty rat. We ended up eating five of them between us, my girlfriend wouldn't have anything to do with it but that was her loss, I may be hooked. And the price is certainly right.
