    The other dark meat: Raccoon is making it to the table

    Damn those crazy hillbillies in Missouri.... At the cutting edge of culinary arts......

    :banjo:





    The other dark meat: Raccoon is making it to the table

    McClatchy Washington Bureau | 01/13/2009 | The other dark meat: Raccoon is making it to the table


    He rolls into the parking lot of Leon's Thriftway in an old, maroon Impala with a trunk full of frozen meat. Raccoon — the other dark meat.

    In five minutes, Montrose, Mo., trapper Larry Brownsberger is sold out in the lot at 39th Street and Kensington Avenue. Word has gotten around about how clean his frozen raccoon carcasses are. How nicely they’re tucked up in their brown butcher paper. How they almost look like a trussed turkey … or something.

    His loyal customers beam as they leave, thinking about the meal they'll soon be eating.

    That is, as soon as the meat is thawed. Then brined. Soaked overnight. Parboiled for two hours. Slow-roasted or smoked or barbecued to perfection.

    Raccoon, which made the first edition of The Joy of Cooking in 1931, is labor-intensive but well worth the time, aficionados say.

    "Good things come to those who wait," says A. Reed, 86, who has been eating raccoon since she was a girl.

    No, not stripped kittens (in light of the PETA move to call fish sea kittens, I'm referring to everything as kittens).

    But really...that's kinda gross. Yet another reason to steer clear of MO.

    Whatever's clever. I prefer a nice Elk about twice the size of me.

    Lasts alot longer

    P.S. to clarify for Ikari, I like antlered kitten. But sometimes I Can only get "spike" kittens.

    I must say I truly feel for the PETA members wives if their husbands are so opposed to eating kittens . . .

    Re: The other dark meat: Raccoon is making it to the table

    In my youth I did a LOT of coon trapping and selling hides. After I'd skin 'em out, I would go over to the quarters (term used for the African-American part of town) and sell the meat for 2-3 bucks a pop.

    I was an ace at skinnin' coons. When I got through, there wasn't anything left on the meat but eyelids and assholes.

    It's GREAT to be me. --- "45% liberal/55% conservative"

    I have had raccoon once and just could not get past the fact that I was eating a rodent. It was the same way when I had rattlesnake...just couldn't get past it and I am pretty adventurous with what I will eat.

    I had it once. Tough and Gamey... But leave it to the hillybillies from MO to make a market out of it.
