They cooked coon on one episode of Jaime Oliver's American Road Trip. The people he was with were hard-core coon hunters, who had never actually eaten coon, so he talked them into cooking and eating it. IIRC, they seemed to like it.

Had family members that ate it during the Depression.
They said if it was freshly killed to skin it, disembowel it and roast it like a pot roast.

Google.com has a lot of recipes....http://www.grouprecipes.com/55002/fried-raccoon.html. There are several more too.

I have a good buddy who loves the heck out of a freshly killed woodchuck. He roasts them and claims they taste like rabbit. They are after all herbivores.

I saw a show on tv where Kermit ruffins, New Orleans trumpet player, cook a coon. Boiled it in liquid crab boil then smoked it in a pan with ragu sauce, onions and peppers. It looked good but not something I wld eat.

I eat it on occasion. But if it's not done right it's so greasy it's pretty much in edible.

Well, I have eaten McDonald's so it's possible that I've eaten racoon and never known it.

I have cooked it before, brined it in white vinegar for 3 or so hours, my buddy cleaned the coon and there are a few glands in the legs that you have to cut out or it'll ruin the meat.

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.

When my grandpaw was still alive, we would set traps to catch Coons in, put them in a pin and feed them nothing but butter milk for a week to clean them out. If we would not do that they would be very greasy just like others said. That also works for possums too.
