Mmmmm......... Garfish balls. I never thought of smoking it!
Gator is really not that bad, you have to really clean it well. Plus its kind of like blackened fish, neither was ever heard of let alone nationally known when most non-tourists here were kids. Alligator sauce piquante, now there is the best way to cook it. Low and slow in hot tomato juices! Aiiiiieeeeee!! That be some good stuff maynard! Loads of long necks!!
Getting lost is just not an option, you may do it once but after an evening in the swamp, ( in the evening it does cool off enough so the mosquitos come out, its too hot during the day), you will learn to either mark you trail or carry a compass.
Chopic, name that fish!
