Rattlesnake Bites

Rattlesnake Bites

Introduction

So, you are looking for something you can cook over an open fire while out on the trail? Well, why don't you try a little rattlesnake for your dinner by the camp fire?

Buy the meat already dressed. Please don't try to hunt one of these bad boys down just to see what he tastes like.

I read that rattlesnakes can still bite you after it has been dead for over an hour. So, if you do hunt one down, chop the head off and dispose of it immediately.

    1 Large Rattlesnake
    Salt
    Black Pepper
    Onion Powder
    Garlic Powder

    Butter or Butter Substitute or
    BBQ Sauce if you dessire

Directions

1. Prepare your grill. Heat the coals to red hot.

4. Cut into 2 inch pieces.
5. Season to taste salt, pepper, onion and garlic powder.
6. Place it on skewers
7. Roast over hot coals. Turn the skewer several times. A little charred to give it a smokey flavor is fine, but not too much.
8. The meat is very lean and it cooks fast.
Cook around 3-4 minutes on each side. It is done when it stops sizzling.
10. Baste it with butter or barbecue sauce. Both good.
