Yea, kind of like chicken. To me it has the texture of a swamp rabbit. I found it to be "chewey" was the reason for cooking it down in a gravy but you cook it for a while and it's fall apart tender. I have never had a strong game taste from them but if you don't remove the musk glands you may have some problems. The state tried a few times to make a big push on eating them but it just never really took off. I think there is a prison some where that has a fairly steady supply of nutria rats on their menu.I have never heard about smoking/eating nutria rat... what type of flavor do you get from something like this? Is it like many other meat oddities that "taste like chicken"?
