Something was getting my chickens so i set a live trap. So far i've caught two raccoons.. skinned, gutted, quartered , frooze. Anyone here ever smoke a raccoon? I'm thinking of adding it to the smoker this weekend.
Welcome to my hometown

Can you really eat coons? When I was a kid there were alot of competition coon dog hunters but they never ate them. Never liked that idea. Hunting is for food not sport!

That should get a rise going!

Squeezy ole buddy ...

You figured it out! What did you do to order the smoker?
Gee mom! ... I thought you'd never ask?
I ordered it from Amazon as per your suggestion (thank you very much ) and am having it delivered to my wife's daughter's place in Wisconsin ... should have it by the end of July!

Cool eh? ... and thanks again!
Congrats on the new smoker Squeezy! Did you get the free shipping?

I'd have asked sooner but I was at a basketball game just got home an hour ago. We lost ...
I would try it, But it would be hard getting past the visions of those little critters snacking in a dumpster behind a fast food joint

my 2 cents
DEERMEAT.Ive yet to smoke a coon but have ate a few.Id think you would want to cook it like a roast first in water with some taters,carrots etc.to tenderize the coon,they can be tough.Then maybe a couple hours on the smoker for flavor.
Raccoon was pretty much a hit. I ended up parboiling for 4 hours with a cup of butter dash of salt/garlic/ and a bay leaf on friday. I removed the pot and put in the fridge. Saturday morning I remove pot skim off the grease from the top and put the pieces on the smoker for 3 hours then the pieces went back into the pot and simmered. What really suprised me about the whole deal was that the kids really liked it. It ended up being very tender (kids deboned what was left yesterday) and tasty. I think i will pour some head country bbq on whats left and have a few sandwhiches with it til its gone. I have another in the freezer may try a whole different approach with the next one.
Thanks for all the input.
hehehe i would have figured it would be like cooking carp on a board and throw the carp away and eat the board
