That may be the ONLY thing gators are good for.

That and maybe keeping the swamp rat population under control.

Barbeque. Sit back, relax, and let the smoke work it's magic!

You can't drink all day, unless you start in the morning.

I can't imagine gator meat. Many years ago, my mother would get turtle meat occasionally from a turtle farm in the Peoria IL vicinity. It had a very good flavor and an unusual mouth feel, but that's about all I can say. Seems doubtful that other reptiles would taste like turtle. [smilie=a_whyme.gif]

Looks like that was a huge gator. I would have taken the tail fileted it and taken all the fat off, cut it into one inch cubes marinated in mustard and cajun seasoning. Then I would put it a mix of butter milk and eggs, flour it in fish fry and fry it. The texture is like sirloin but the color is like pork and the taste is out of this world not gammie at all.

Ya'll can mess with the rest of the gator... I be takin' the tail.

Strip down them long tubular muscles that run through the main part of the tail.
Slice them about like large scallops or small steak medallions and
batter and deep fry.....
oooieeee boy! wishun' I had a mess of it right now!

I must be an oddball, because ifun I had to live on only one kind of
meat for the rest of my life.....as much as I LOVEEEE red meat....
I'd have to choose Gator Tail.

It has the consistancy of a really nice piece of veal but tastes like
kind of a cross between chicken and the sweetest scallops you've
ever tasted.
