barbecue squirrel
« on: January 28, 2011, 01:06:00 PM »
I tried this recipe the other day and it was wonderful and so simple!

I put 4 or 5 older squirrels into a small crockpot
about 1/4 cup of water
cover in your favorite barbecue sauce
cook on low until the meat falls off the bone...3 to 4 hours

amazing way to tenderize older, tougher squirrels

That sounds good I'm going to try that, some of the older ones can get pretty chewy.

Man that sounds so easy. Only 3 - 4 hours. I live at 7,000 elevation, do you think that'll affect cooking time? I love squirrel, and I do make a nice casserole but the squirrels are actually precooked in a pressure cooker, which works wonderfully. Thanks, can't wait to try this recipe. Do you eat it on buns?

Thanks,

Mark

I haven't thought of putting it on a bun but that sounds like a great idea!!

Squirrel is the most underrated wild game meat.  It's good just about any way!

I usually go out on a hunt and clean all my squirrels at the same time when I get back to the house...

Another twist on that is....

Place the squirrel meat in the crock pot
Empty a package of onion soup mix over the meat
Place a chopped onion on top of that
Pour the contents of a bottle of Heinz Chili Sauce over it all. Cook on low until tender.

Works well with backstrap and other meats too.

I like leaving them intact after cleaning and boiling on the stove for a little over an hour til the meat is really tender and about ready to come off the bone, I spit them and make a small smoking smolder in my bit and let them cook for another hour with my favorite blend of spices and at the end, I have a pan with some beer i hand from the spit rod holder so it is just under the tree rats and bulk up the fire enough to boil the beer... instead of pulled pork, pulled Tree Rat samiches... ;0)  Scrum-diddly-umptious.....!

Crock pot squirrel has been a favorite at my house for a long time. Very good!
