Once a year the old timers have a wild game feed here. Everyone brings something, deer, rabbit, birds, coon, rattlesnake, etc. They have home made cookers going and also dig a big pit for underground cooking.
I've only eaten coon from an underground pit. It's a dark meat and greasy...reminds me of goose. It could be the way the old ranchers cook it but I love it. It's very good, smokey and tender.
