Aligator Back Ribs

My barber says he & a friend regularly butchers Aligators from a guy who has a license to kill them. They split the meat/head/skin, etc. He says there's a "baby back" rib on the gator and wonders how this would cook.
Any one heard of such a thing?[p]jaymer...

    As a Miami Hurricane Fan (currently down but not all the way out)....I'm always interested in different ways to eat GATOR....Especially since my boys have beaten the Florida Gators the last six times we've played....and when they ain't hiding.......[p]We've been eating Gator down this way for years....but it's always been meat from the tail section....Never heard of GatorBack Ribs.....[p]Always liked eatin' Gator meat.....Tastes pretty good for an Amphibian......[p]Ed McLean
    Ft. Pierce, Florida[p]PS...When the Hurricanes are down and out...we just mosey over to 'The U'...and gaze at those 5 National Championship Trophies....and that peps us up a bit......

    Jaymer-Que BBQ (Bloomingdale/Tampa, FL),
    It cooks wonderfully.....that is if you like gator. One thing, they are not like pork ribs, cooking time is not that long. I usually cook them at 300 degrees direct for about 1 hour.[p]We like the fried the best. Just cut the individual ribs out, flour and fry. They are great.........bigarms
