This is a combination of a Nashville Hot Chicken recipe and a Slow-Cooker Sticky Wings recipe. Poser, I want your thoughts on this and for you to try it out. Anyone else, who wants to, try it out and let me know your thoughts as well. Here it is:

Brine
2 quarts water
1/4 c hot sauce (I used tabasco)
1/4 c salt
1/4 sugar
Mix brine in bowl. Place squirrels in brine. Refrigerate for one to two days.

Slow Cooker
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp ground ginger
1/4 c dark brown sugar
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tbs soy sauce

Mix dry ingredients. Combine soy sauce and dry ingredients; place in slow cooker. Toss squirrels in sauce. Turn slow cooker on low and cook 3-4 hours until squirrels are tender but not yet falling apart. Once an hour or so rotate the squirrels in the slow cooker (move bottom to top and vice-versa). You will know the squirrels are done when the meat starts to flake.

Broil
1/2 c brown sugar
1/4 c soy sauce
1/2 c ketchup

When squirrels are done, cut your broiler on and place oven rack on lower middle position. Remove squirrels from slow cooker and let cool for twenty minutes. Whisk ingredients. Toss squirrels in half of sauce; reserve remaining half. Place wire rack inside baking sheet. Place squirrels on wire rack. Place baking sheet in the oven. Broil for 10-15 minutes until squirrels are slightly charred. Flip squirrels and baste in remaining sauce. Broil another three minutes until caramelized.

I tried this tonight, and they are good. If cooked right in the slow cooker, the squirrel will be as tender as chicken with a great spicy flavor.

Interesting, I do have some squirrel in the freezer that needs a recipe. will consider this among other recipes whenever the heck I take them out of the freezer... lol

The name of the recipe doesn't sound too appetizing but the recipe itself does.

This sounds really interesting. Unfortunately, I have 0 squirrels right now so I'm going to have to wait until later in the year. \:\(

carry a pellet rifle in the deer stand, pop a couple of the thousand squirrels that you will see every time you deer hunt. I haven't done it yet, I guess i don't like to make a sound, but sometimes the squirrels bark just enough to make me consider wasting an arrow. but I know better than that.

Sounds like that would be good. I have three in the freezer, I may give it a try.

I thought there was recently a discussion in the TWRA forum about this and it was said to be legal, except possibly with a bow during archery season.
