Anybody cooked a squirrel on the egg?

We've always eaten them in one form or fashion and I have a freezer full that are just begging to be cooked on the egg.

Anybody got any tips on marinades or recipes?

I'm thinking of doing a batch low and slow this weekend with plenty of smoke and a little Dizzy Dust.

    Stike - I have read many posts that you either started or commented on and that one was hands down my favorite. even if I do get fired from work for laughing for 10 minutes straight it was worth it. Thank you sir!

    mickey: that thread is good evidence that at that place, one should switch over to 'classic' view. otherwise you'd have no clue who was talking to who.

    my favorite part is the sidebar watching littlesteven slowly breakdown and begin sobbing at the thought of all that bordeaux being used and abused.

    After reading the other thread, I think I'd better wait until we can find some Peter V's to drink when we cook 'em.

    Looks good I have seen the mini threads and the you tube video with the food. No regrets here and she was just having fun. I thought it was funny. I am getting an xl in a few months, but knew I would want both for different purposes. Planning on getting a mini woo and pizza stones soon.
