    Now I can also get Gator meat here in the Jax area but I ink there are a couple of other things that I would rather do with it then make Jerky. You can do with it what you want to. I would maybe fry some up or maybe a gumbo would be good too. I'm sure it will be good as jerky too.

    They sure look tasty! Even the grocery stores around here have gator meat, but we get it down at the gator farm about 1/2 hour from here.

    Holy smoke!  They got gators in Savannah, they better watch out, but looks like tasty jerky.
