Chicken bums are the best! I would love to be able to buy a whole skewers of them. Had some grilled chicken skin from similar setup in Thailand a couple of years ago and it was scrumptious.

Thank you for the recommendation. He now has a 10th Anniversary edition. I just bought a Kindle version on Amazon for around $10. His web site www.barbecuebible.com looks good too.

Delicious too. The suckers in Bangkok are bigger than big domestic cats.
We have rats in SE Texas and Southern Louisiana that are bigger than some dogs -- easily 20 pounds. We used to shoot them for target practice in the marsh lands near Port Arthur (yes, we have one, too).

Some people actually eat them. We just threw the dead nutria rats in the water for the gators to eat. No laws protecting them. Even PETA doesn't care if you kill them, as far as I can tell.

I wonder if they are related to the big rats in Thailand.

^^^ bucc, nutria don't look like that. Nutria are bigger, and fatter, and look similar to the common field rats we have in Texas -- just way bigger.

Kinda sorta. Little nutria bastards are closer related to capys and porcupines if memory serves. They're also called coypu, if you wish to google their asses or anything. I remember running across them in some swamps a few times. You probably already know, but in case you don't they're an import from South America! And they're EVIL for North American plant life! Downright ruining some areas with their eating habits.

I couldn't find a pic of the Bangkok rat.
It is a monster, and has a tail that is segmented and hairless, looks armor plated like an armadillo.
Flesh is really white and looks better than chicken breast when you prep it for the grill, but even cats are terrified of the buggers!

No JB, it looks like a massive rat except rounder bodied, and the tail is slender like a rat's but hairless and segmented kind of.
Bigger than many small dog breeds too!
