    Well i still consider myself to be a rookie at the whole smoking meats but im all ways willing to try something new. I raise New Zealand White Rabbits and my husband all ways fries them or has me do a roux and stew them so i thought why not try something new.

    So i found a recipe form Man Fire Food where the guy rotisseries the rabbit over an open flame. I brined them in white Miso and parsley rosemary and shaved garlic for two days (injected) . i heated it all together and cooled it for this part.

    So then i stuffed them with garlic , rosemary, basil,salt , pepper and sewed them up with cooking string ( i suggest a second hand for this). then i put them on the skewer from the rotisserie. Again i did this on my own it would have been a lot easier with help to hold them.

    Great. We loved them. I thought that the spices on the stick to bast them was more for show but it wasn't. It really did make difference in flavor.

    I raise mine New Zealand whites. And quail, pheasants, chickens and turkey. We had ducks to but we ate them because they kept getting in my pool.

    I missed this post first time around.

    I'm thinking those rabbits would have been great. Nice flavor profile.

    What temp and wood did you use and to what IT??

    I generally just cook rabbit on a spit over an open fire.

    Sure would have liked to have seen more pics. Keep trying.

    Well the first 2 in the top I did at 200 to 250 in the smoker then on the rotisserie I only put them in the smoker for like 30min for flavor the rest of the 2hours and 30 min was on the pit. Oak

    This time I just did them on the rotisserie same time and temperature, but I did 4 rabbits so I had to finish them off on the pit because they were to big lol 46inch gill. I have a small ss pipe that I put oak in for smoke in the pit.to.
