Fried turtle as above is excellent! If you don't have a pressure cooker you can bread and fry at low temp, about 225-250 until tender.
Another method is to season as desired, smoke it for an hour or two at 225, then transfer to a dutch oven covered and increase temp to about 325 (easier to just move to oven) until tender.
Turtle is awesome meat, but a PITA to clean...
