Bunny Rabbits

Anyone smoked rabbit before? I've got a chance to get a half dozen real cheap. I'm thinking just treat it like any other meat, but didn't know if anyone had a special rub or formula.

I'm not sure, but aren't they pretty lean? I'd put 'em on a spit and grill 'em!

Ya know?... I was just thinkin', there's about 5 or 6 of them rascals that live out by our shed...I don't think the wifey an' kids would notice if 1 or 2 disappeared...

Yup .. no need for low & slow on them little hoppers. Spice em and sear em!
If the gamey undertone is too much ... soak em in buttermilk overnight next time.

I like them grilled but I like the smoked meat too. You can marinate them in an oil-based marinade first (they take to fresh herbs, garlic, citrus juices, red or white wines very well) or you can do the drape with bacon thing. They are quite lean. I wouldn't recommend going past 160 internal. They do not take very long since they're small. You can also smoke for a short period--say, 30 min to an hour--then use the meat in something else, like a fricassee or a gumbo.

I usually just grill like a chicken leg. I like them better than
chicken actually. Just be careful not to get `em too try.
Need a fairly strong rub to kill of the game. BBQ sauce
for sure. I`d hop all over it.

Holy Smokes. I never thought about smoked or grilled rabbit. I love bunnies fried just like you would a chicken. Now that I think about it it should be great grilled. This is a quantum leap for me.

You guys talking about wild rabbits that you go out and kill, right? Or, you talking the fat rabbits frozen at the meat store.

Scotty - You have entirely way too much free time. Where did you find that website? I don't think I'll take those rabbits after all.

As a child I was always taken to the Knob Creek gun shootout.
As an adult I learned to love Knob Creek Bourbon.
