Thread: Squirrel Recipe

  1. #1

    Default Squirrel Recipe

    Take a flat rock and put it in front of your fire. Wait until it is hot enough, they place squirrel on top of rock and place wild onions on top. Wait until fully cooked and enjoy.

    Have you tried this...?
    Ever had one blow up on you?

    Rocks in for or next to a fire don't get all the hot all the way thru.....just the part is close to the fire.
    A green stick would work much better.

    Its not meant to cook the rock, your supposed to cook the squirrel. The green stick would work too, but this is just one method.

    Yep, needs garlic!

    We normally do throw away the squirrel and eat the rock.

    Just make sure your green stick isn't buckthorn or witch hazel or black cherry....or any number of other things you don't want to be cooking into your hard won squirrel.

    I prefer mine in a pot. With carrots and garlic and served over rice.

    This may be a method....not really a recipe?

    I will repeat the question....Have YOU ever done this......?
    Or is this something you heard somewhere....saw a You tube or Bear vids...or read in "25 Famous survival hacks"?

    I would guess you could "cook" a squirrel by laying on a rock , next to a fire, using radiant heat....as well as log, or even dirt...just throw in fire then scrape off burnt hair.

    Getting the rock "hot enough to cook on" will take some doing....plenty of time, fuel....and danger or exploding rocks

    As Max says, "... and have you ever eaten roasted squirrel with no seasoning?"

    Actually I prefer rabbit on a stick....several reasons.
    You can kill them with a sling shot, throwing stick, or just a rock, as there are on the ground...and stop a lot...
    ....and they have shorter tails, so don't remind me of rat.

    Lot was to do with "how hungry are you, what do you have to work with, with the least expense of resources......

    Sorry, not buying it.

    better off parboiling the bejeezes out of it in a billy.
    so the definition of a criminal is someone who breaks the law and you want me to believe that somehow more laws make less criminals?

    I made a squirrel cooker out of a couple rods from a spool. If memory serves I think I may have posted a photo showing it. Montreal steak seasoning is pretty good sprinkled on roast squirrel.

    I have a copper billy can sized specifically to hold a squirrel. I did cook a duck in it once down in Alabama but that was an emergency. Poor thing flew into camp and committed suicide and we were forced to cook it before it went bad.

    Also have a big Iron fork I forged to spear the squirrel and roast it over the fire. I used to make and sell them, the forks not the squirrels.

    I shot a squirrel when I was about 8. Cooked it over flames. It was horrible. I chewed that thing to death. God I can still taste it.

    Learned to bake that booger nice.

    I boil my squirrel the same way as I prepare kidney, I boil the pizz out of it. And then there is fried squirrel brains.

    Back to the OP.....squirrel on a rock....seems these guys are trying it at least....but also seems to not be getting done...and cut the meat off the bone....on a piece of flat slate...
    Don't see a lot of lip smacking.

    Y'know, I do a fair bit of cooking. If I can offer you some free advice, recipes are usually more than "you take a squirrel and, like, cook it". You couldn't call that a recipe in the traditional sense.
