Gonna Experiment Tomorrow!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I got my hands on some alligator fillets, so I decided that I will smoke it tomorrow evening. Did some research and the consensus recommend marinading it in Italian dressing overnight. I will take pictures.

 

Also, I'm going to make my first-ever smoked dessert! Will  keep you updated!!!

That gator has been marinating in the swamp all his life. Overnight in italian dressing won't make much difference. If I wanted anyone to smoke alligator for me, it would be you, Steve.

Good luck with it and be sure to post some pics. Joe

Are they from the tail?

 

If cooked wrong they can be really tough.

 

Either low & slow, or hot & fast. In between doesn't work.

I was gonna try Smoking a Pennsylvania Gator, but they're just too nasty to handle, especially in the Winter, Through the Ice!!! :icon_rolleyes:

Nope---Ran into a problem-----Maximum hole size through the Ice in PA is 10". Too Small to get a PA Gator through.

 

Have to go back to PA Trout.
