Anyone ever smoked squirrel?

I'd be willing to bet GOB has a recipe for me right quick on this one
Going out tree rat hunting this afternoon with my son, as soon as I finish smoking some salmon fillets. Every time I i fire up that smoker, I just want to keep going
So I was thinking, why couldn't I smoke a squirrel or two? (if we get lucky)

Should I soak them in a brine mix first or just do a rub and start smoking?
Hopefully we are successful in the hunt, and when I get back there is a recipe or two.
Thanks

The hardest thing about smoking a tree rat is keeping it lit.

Smart Aleck! Ya beat me to it.

I'm not a smoked meat fan myself. Except for sausages and Ham. This may be a answer for minihntr on the other thread on teal. Teal and Shovelers are not my favorite eating fare. Toooo gamey.

Best wishes, Bill

all thats missing is the drum roll

well, didn't get any suirrels, saw a couple but no clear shot. Was a fantastic time though. At one point my son and I were walking a trail slowly, and I saw a squirrel running on the ground. I couldn't get a clear shot and then I didn't see it anymore. I told him to stay put andwatch the area as I walked a little farther ahead and it might show itself to him. I walked about 20 yards and turned around...
There he stands, alert and looking for the squirrel. Right behind him on the trail is a doe 15 yards away looking at him. I nearly fell over. I got his attention and motioned for him to look behind him. His eyes about popped out of his head. Closest he has been so far to a live deer. Tried to get my phone out and get a picture but the doe walked off to quick. Would have killed to get that pic.

Anyways, we had a great time and a story we always remember. But I'll still look for a smoked squirrel recipe.

Great story Lone Wolf. You guys will treasure that for years.

You could also make Jerky out of it.

You could also look up a project on meat smoking on Google and might find something. Just a thought.
