How to Cook Raccoon

According to this youtube video, the secret is to remove the glands under the legs. The end result is meat so tasty "you'll slap your grandma."

Another pro tip: If you didn't road kill the raccoon yourself, and are getting an already skinned animal from a trapper or hunter, make sure the feet are still attached. Otherwise, you might have been given a cat or opossum. Apparently this is an old trick in the raccoon meat trade.

While I'll agree that coon is a step up from possum it sure as hell ain't no large step!

Slap My Grammy?!

Slap your Grammy down
Slap your Pappy down again
(Oh, move it up and down now)

@ Expat, Every little step counts tween cat and coon! :lol:
@ Patty, I'll admit coon aint the best looking critter on the hoof, so to speak. But if you're hungry enough it looks like steak! and makes a great stew or chili! Plus no antibiotics or growth hormones! :coolsmile:

It's an old trick in the Asian Restaurant trade to sell raccoon meat as cat.

Many years ago an anthrothopter was giving a talk about some tribe which lived deep in the amazon.
Before he got into their diet, he descibed an other culture in anthrothopter words. He made BACON and eggs with toast sound gross.

Yes Expat, we noticed. We just didn't know if it was silly or senility. :coolgrin:

Looked like good eating to me. I won't go out of my way to have a taste, but if a host serves it to me I won't hesitate to indulge. Meat is meat...with only one exception.

They don't call my home town Raccoon City for nothing. Not sure if these garbage-fed ones are good-eatin', but there sure are a lot of them and they sure are fat. There would be a lot the good burghers here who would gladly donate their racoons to a big coon fry.
