post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I now have five rabbits in my freezer and I wanting to smoke them, what wood would you use and why
I am going to put rabbits in a gumbo with some shrimp

I would use a strong wood like hickory or mesquite so the smoke flavor comes out in the gumbo.

My garden was getting hammered so I did the vegetable=meat conversion.
I brined them first then smoked them for a couple hours. Then I pulled the meat off the bones and braised with demiglaze and wild dehydrated mushrooms/shallots.
After that i added some heavy cream and reduced. The final product was stuffed into cooked potatoe skins for a wild game feast attended.it was a big hit.
I recomend brineing first.

Sure! Have you looked at any of the bacon covered rabbit smokes on here? I've been thinking of getting the box trap out and smoking a few myself.

I think he shoots a couple hundred rabbits a year in Western PA.
