In the Squirrels Unlimited World Champion Squirrel Cook Off in Benton AR in Sept 2013.
http://www.squirrelcookoff.com/Home.html

How does it feel to have a future champion amongst your ranks?

BTW, I'm going to need some Squirrels -lots of squirrels to perfect my entry. Maybe some of ya'll can help me out with that?

I'll give you all the squirrels I kill (minus the tails) just depends how close you are and how practical it is to get them to you. Good luck!

I'm in Memphis. I think we're probably going to do something with Squirrel hearts for the side dish, so keep a few of the hearts along with the carcasses.

So, at last year's competition, The Food Channel filmed content for a episode of Bizzarre Food. That is going to air this March and they are expecting a big publicity push as a result. They had 13,000 people in attendance last year and are expecting more this year with about 100 teams competing.

If you have a background that warrants it, you might apply to be a judge. He said that they may have to expand to more judges this year. Last year it was 2 celebrity chefs, a hillbilly and a local woman famous for her wild game cooking.

Sounds like fun. If you were closer I could keep you supplied with squirrels. My Dad is retired and has some good tree dogs, him and my boys have killed dozens in the last 2 weeks they have been out of school.

I used to be KCBS certified as a judge, but it's been a while. Other creditials, I was 180lb, married a southern girl that was raised in a town population of 250 and I now wieght 250. Does that count?

Do you want fox as well as gray or just gray?

Also do you want to stay away from the ones that have spent alot of time in the pine trees?

Either are fine. I like fox squirrels better just because they have more meat on the bones.

Are you going to try to use fresh squirrels for the competition, or use frozen ones from this season? If I start stacking them up, I can help you out.

Maybe you could come up with an appetizer that uses squirrel testicles and bot fly larvae from the early season ones...

OK. I just crossed the line. Pressing "Submit" before I stop myself!

That's not a bad idea. I definitely want to enter a dish that you know for sure you are eating a squirrel. In other words, I'm not looking to bury squirrel meat in Dumplins, gravy, gumbo etc. I like those dishes, but don't think they'll win a competition because that's what everyone does.

Let me know....after 7 years, it turn out ol' Leroy is a squirrel catcher.



I suspect he spooked off the neighborhood tomcat that is most likely the culprit in this case. Knowing Leroy, this is likely a "finders-keepers" scenario, rather than a "LOOK WHAT I GOT!"

Poser, I waas 6 years and and Mr. Grahm down the street was a real outdoorsman, always sharing panfish and game. He shot a bunch of squirrels and I was standing there watching him clean them and he gave me two that needed work. I came home carrying two squirrels and without a word my Dad jumped up, grabbed the squirrels and a kitchen knife and was yelling at Mom to get the cornbread pan out. Skinned out, crisco in the pan, cornbread heating up, one of my great memories, Dad doing the cooking, telling stories about how he was so hungry he ran them down.

If I can get home I promise to take my boys out after some. Any tips for field care, skinning, etc?

You have a great time. If you need a taster, My Wife likes anything with jalapenos.

We got invited because of the Go Carnivore blog. They do accept a certain amount of applications for any team that wishes to compete.

I do the "step on the tail" technique for skinning. There are numerous YouTube videos on this. As far as field care, I do it different than most people. I skin them immediately, while they are still warm, and place them in a game bag. Squirrels are way easier to skin when warm.
