Hey KW, Iam still looking at all these wonderful recipes and came on this one, I have had this only the rattlesnake was cut into bite size pieces, it was so tender I think everyone should give it a try and dont worry it wont bite back! lol :smiley:

Brackman -

I couldn’t eat rattlesnake - just could not do it! Those that I know that have eaten it have said the same thing - very tender and almost tastes like chicken! It looks like I will just take their word for it!

That’s disgusting.

Thats what I thought at first, but it taste so much like chicken you would not believe it! Its all white meat and very good. Granted I dont go out and hunt for them, but if they are on a menu I would order them as an appetizer. :smiley:

I’ll take your word for it, but no thanks. I’m a vegetarian anyway.
