Whole smoked alligator

Need a recipe or advice on smoking a whole alligator and using the gator as a centerpiece for a display.

Yes, I'm serious.

I think it would be best to put some duct tape around his mouth and a sash cord around his leg...use him for a live centerpiece. That should work. Cook up some butts and tell all the yankees from Ohiya you feeding them his family. I like it. Get the local newspaper out to cover the story etc. Heard of this guy down here who always win the "wild game" portion of a bbq cookoff by claiming he was cooking Arrdvark. He get a letter from his cuz who run the wild game farm in S. Texas who write a letter notarized to verify it was Arrdvark..then the guy would cook up double cut pork chops. Whut a smarty pants huh? Stuck a bunch of money in his pocket from whut I heard. Wasn't sanctioned surely. BBQ Mom and Pat be too smart to fall for that kinda deal. Then you could turn the little guy loose in the local lake after you get done. They are very good to eat trash fish...like bass and crappie etc. They dont eat good stuff like catfish and carp I dont think. Surely they would not be dumb enough to try to eat a gar. Gar got mo teeth than him most likely. Just trying to cover all the bases here.
