Gator........it's what's for dinner.
« on: May 17, 2021, 08:25:38 PM »
My friend Roy grew up in South Carolina, and his family still owns hundreds of acres of swamp land there. He went to visit a couple of weeks ago, and went gator hunting with his brother. They got one, and Roy gave me some of the meat to try. I cut it into small pieces, dredged it in flour, and pan fried it. It turned out pretty good, if I do say so myself.

Washed it all down with ice tea.

I've never had it but I sure would like to try it. Your photos and description make it sound even better than anticipated

I have eaten it a couple of times when I was in the south, and like you, enjoyed it.  The first time I ever tried it I was at an outdoor market and bought some 'alligator on a stick'.

 When I was stationed in Charleston South Carolina we used to go to this little bridge in Goose Creek and feed the alligators that were underneath it used to throw them chicken and stuff I was fascinated by them.

Pat - I'm sure you spent some time at "Mother Rucker".  When I was there for the Sr Course one of the guys from Louisiana would go home whenever we had a long weekend and always came back with gator for the class.  We did it on the BBQ and enjoyed it.
When they come for mine they better bring theirs
