    Oh man that looks tasty. We never had grey or black squrrels here at one time, too far north but there sure are lots here now at least in the city. May have to airgun a few down in the back yard and try that out. I know there is a season. Funny thing, we only see them in town, out in the bush it's the way it has always been....red squirrels only? :scratch Or maybe I just need to pay closer attention out in the woods now that I have seen how to cook them....:eek::tu

    The best way to cook dem rats is in a good ol brown gravy. Quarter your skirls up i throw the rib cages away. Season well and then cover the bottom of a black iron pot or magnalite pot wit grease. Brown your skirls on high fire til good and brown. Once they are brown brown some diced yellow onions. Then you can add water and seasoning green onions. A little kitchen bouquet. And just let it simmer until skirls get tender. I don't like cookin em til they fall off the bone cuz then you got bones all in your gravy.. I cook them til tender and serve over rice with some black eyed peas on da side. You talk about good now.

    Magnalites are great for pot roast. Tell u the truth I rather cook in a magnalite. They're not as heavy as a black pot and they brown just as good. I'm guessin they are made out of some kind of aluminum? But too heavy to just be plain aluminum. I'm not sure. You can prolly google Magnalite pots.
