Thinking about making squirrel-pot-pie. I figure pressure cooking with tender them up some. Any idea how long to leave them in the pressure cooker?

~25 minutes should do the trick. Brine them first and the'll be even more tender.

I pressure cook the ones I fry first. 15 min for younguns 20 min for older. Usually the meat is just about to fall off the bone.

What's the salt to water ratio on the brine?

Do a 1 to 4 (salt to water) ratio for 2 to 4 hours. Add some peppercorns and any other type of flavors you like: A little crushed garlic works for about everything. You could also things add peppers, mustard seed, chili powder.... whatever you like.
