I have been wanting to smoke an alligator for a very long time! I found a place online that would ship me an alligator frozen solid. So I called them. My alligator came frozen solid. It took one full day to thaw him.

I brined him for a day. I flipped him over in the brine a couple of times when I would add the ice to keep him cold

Gator looks great. This is one of those post where I would have loved to seen every little drawn out detail from skinning the gator to spicing it up, and all the way to the dinner plate.

Sorry I forgot to get plated pics. The gator comes skinned. Only has skin on hands and feet.

That really looks amazing, I've always wanted to do that after seeing Bruce from Swamp People always smoking up a feast.
