Default Coon?

nyone here tried racoon? I've never eaten any but have heard that prepared correctly it can be good. Anyone here ever eaten it and was it good? Any prep tips or warnings? Thanks. 😀

I have eaten a lot of coon back in my younger day's. I haven't had in years though. Mostly we had it barbecued. Sometimes just baked.
I liked it.

I don't think of myself as a staunch Republican or Democrat.
I am a Christian and a Conservative...........In that order!

The young half grown ones are the best! If it's a bore coon with nuts bigger than yours then ya might not want to eat him! Least wise that's what grandpa would tell you! Ha!

Cook it slow! A crock pot is not a bad way to go!

Twenty or so years ago, my two partners and I had a wild game luncheon on a teacher planning day. Feast included wild pig, venison, coot and I trussed up a coon like a Thanksgiving turkey and baked it. Served it with baked turnips and the curious came back for seconds.

I've had it long ago a couple different ways and I did NOT like it at all...

Unless I'm starving, I won't be trying it again...

if you clean one to eat, be sure to get the glands
out from under the front legs and trim off all the
stinky fat.

Possum was too greasy I couldn't get past that.

Coon was dark meat, bbqed and dry. No mas!

Bobcat, the meat raw had a bluish tint to it.

Also smoked, 1 bite was plenty.

Properly cleaned and cooked they eat a lot like pulled pork to me. The VFW has coon feeds every winter. They always get one old gal to do the cooking and it's really good. The old gal got laid up one winter and someone else filled in, the grease in the nesco roaster was deeper then the meat, not good at all. My wife does a fair to middlin' job with it but grumbles some about making it.

I won't be wronged. I won't be insulted. I won't be laid a-hand on. I don't do these things to other people, and I require the same from them.
