Bacon wrapped Rabbit

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
The other day we were at a local butcher and they had rabbits in the freezer. It's been about 25 years since I've had rabbit so i picked one up. After it thawed in the fridge for a couple of days I sprinkled it with my BIL's bbq seasoning and wrapped it in bacon, then in cheesecloth because they are so lean. I moistened the cheesecloth and then smoked it along with the bacon chicken breasts.

It was smoked at 275 for 3 hours with pecan.

It was good. My one son who would try it said he liked it but it did kind of taste like chicken. lol

I will pick the meat from the carcass tomorrow and freeze it for future use.

My grandma makes a rabbit in red wine sauce stew that is wonderful. Did the rabbit turn out juicy? It sure looks tasty.

Looks great Dawn,
When my parents got married, my grama raised rabbits so slautered a bunch of them for the reception. I guess all attending thought they were eating chicken. lol

That's a real nice looking smoke ya had yourself, Dawn. I've not tried pecan on chicken yet, how does it taste compared to cherry or hickory?
