Ok.. these things were good. Different but good

The outside of the meat got a little tough where it peeked through the bacon, next time I will have to do a better job of that.

The meat was juicy, tender and good.

Yum.

There are two things that will make anything taste better...Bacon and Chocolate. You picked the right one. For all the ribbing I gave you, I'm very glad they turned out and you enjoyed them.

Squirrel Review

My squirrel was smaller and a bit on the tough side, but it was tasty. The flavor and texture was between a baked ham and a smoked turkey leg. The bacon was an excellent addition.

Kayelle, remember that I grew up in southern country. I reserve the right to turn down coleslaw - because no one makes it like Momma. I just cannot stomach the thought of eating sweetbreads (brains) or tripe. My mother was a stickler that we had to try anything once, but she allowed us to veto three items outright. Since no one served tripe, when I was a child, my third item was marrow dumplings. Now that I'm an adult, I have marrow dumplings "grandfather'ed" in.

Dad fished and hunted, but he never hunted squirrel. I'm not sure why except that they had to be a pain to clean for the small amount of meat. Still...they were better than I thought they would be.

Thanks for the report Kathleen. I had to laugh out loud at PF....."There are two things that will make anything taste better...Bacon and Chocolate. You picked the right one. "
