The local squirrel population have 8 more days to run around in the woods foot loose and fancy free. On the 15th bright and early I will be in a deer blind with my Rugar 22 hornet and picking squirrels off near and far.
Yes I do have a couple of 22LR rifles but quit trying to find ammo a few years back and started down loading the hornet to 22LR speed.
I like my squirrels bacon wraped and baked.
squirrel legs, front or rear, amount depends upon how hungry you are
hickory smoked bacon
Soak the legs in beer for 2 – 3 hours. Remove and drain.
Sprinkle to taste with garlic powder, pepper, salt and the minced onion (or if you have a favorite dry rub for grilled squirrel you can use that instead).
Wrap each leg with bacon. Secure with toothpicks if necessary.
Place on hot grill (charcoal grill recommended for a nice smoky flavor, although a gas or electric grill will do the trick). Cook over medium heat until cooked through, tend to the meat as your cooking to make sure you do not over cook.
If you rather not waste the beer omit that part.
