Some black folks here make bbq out of it. I don’t know how they do it. It is really good. I think they mix it with some pork.
Best coon I ever had was cooked in an electric rotisserrie machine where the grease could run off. It is a wild flavored meat. Reminds me of bear meat kinda. Or maybe a little like lizard or monkey. I think it also depends on how it’s killed. When I was young we would eat them out of a snare. After I got older and realized the Bible says not to eat blood we stopped doing that. They taste a lot different when bled out.
I don’t know anything about cooking and spices and all that…so, no, I don’t have a recipe. My grandma just always cooks whatever folks bring her. My dad used to cook coon/beaver/groundhog like a beef roast with potatoes and onions and carrots etc. in an oven.
Possum is just a nasty gray color meat. People here used to eat them a lot during the depression era, but not because they liked it. Look up “Jerry Clower possum hunting story” on Youtube and laugh your head off. He was from the next state over…same folks as from around here I guess…
