Squirrel - the other white meat

I've eaten many things that most people would probably never consider trying, but I haven't had the opportunity to try squirrel yet. Hopefully someday I'll get a chance.

Ever had beaver? <key RW joke> Seriously, we had a farmer near our place that trapped some. Very salty.

Hmmmm. Trapping Beaver. :-?

And to think all this time I'd been trying free drinks and sweet talk.

Yeah, I've had beaver. A few others that I can remember off the top of my head: muskrat, mountain lion, rattlesnake, cow brain, tongue, and stomach, partially incubate eggs.

Some that some people think are gross, but are really pretty normal: jellyfish, pickled rock crab, ray, fish eye soup, frog legs, snail, goat, hog's head cheese, blood pudding.

I had a chance to try tongue once and declined. Rocky Mountain oysters? Never had them myself, but living on the farm we had plenty of people around us who had. Only thing on your list I've actually had was rattlesnake. Had it when I was younger at my aunt's place near Vegas. Can't remember much about the taste.

I haven't had most of those on your list, but I have had calf fries. They are quite tasty actually. :-b

I ate a pig's tongue once on a bet. Pretty tasty actually.

I think squirel is just one of those things either you were brouht up eating or not. I'm sure if you threw a little of my home made bbq sauce on it'd be fine. ;-D

there are some squirrels you just don't want to mess with

One of those knuckleheads on the howard stern show, the drummer guy who's slow as molasses, told a story of how his dad would kill squirrel and take it down to the railroad tracks and sell to the po folks.
