I am from the midwest aswell and a fanatic about squirrel hunting. Here is my favorite recipe for white squirrel chili.

Get together several squirrels skinned and left whole. Soak in a salt brine over night. Then simmer them whith a couple of bullion cubes until the meat comes easily off the bones. Shred by hand and set aside.

other ingredients
4 cloves garlic (or 4 table spoons minced garlic)
2 medium yellow onions
2 bell peppers one red one green
2 serano peppers
2 cans great northern beans
1 can pinto beans
1 table spoon cayane
1/2 table spoon texas chilli powder
1/2 table spoon salt
1/2 quart chicken broth

saute peppers, onion,squirrel in a little oil until veggies are soft. then combine all other ingedients and simmer cover for 1-2 hours then simmer uncovere as desired to thicken.

I was going to tell you about my recipe, but Soap Creek beat me to it. Squirrel is tough unless cooked a long time or in a pressure cooker. Just follow what Soap said. You can of course adjust ingredients as you like. I like to keep the broth or gravey thin and like corn in mine. I made this for a few friends one time, and the one friend at first refused to eat it. We finally got him to try it and he ended up eating three bowls full. He said he didn't know tree rats could taste so good. Very healthy, nutritious meat. At least twice as nutritious as any meat from a store. [thumbsup] Enjoy

Big fox squirrels have always been good just fried. The greys seem to be tougher and I brown real good then pressure cook for about 20 min. This is the best meat in the woods. Grouse are number 2

Pressure cook until tender. Usually about 15 minutes. Let the pressure go down on its own, just turn off the burner or if its an electric stove just remove the pressure cooker from the coil. pan fry with bacon grease. Regular flour works good but I like drakes or pancake flour. Fry until brown. Another good recipe is to just cook in a slow cooker with lipton cup of soup.(onion) Cook until tender. You can usre the pressure cooker to hurry the process.

Ted Nugent's book "Kill it and Grill it" has a great recipe for squirrel casserole. If you'd like, PM me & I'll send ya the recipe. Only thing I do different with it is, I add a layer of cheddar cheese to the top.

quarter the squirrels bring to a slow boil in salted water for 25-30 min. Dip them in milk then roll in seasoned flour or fish fry. Pan fry in veg oil or deep fry about 12 min.

Love squirrel hunting and I've tried a bunch of ways to cook them. I like to clean them and chunk them up, 5 pieces; hind legs, front legs and backstrap. I think they benefit from a brine soak with a little vinegar in it. If you don't have time to brine them you can skip that step. Then I simmer them covered in beer for about an hour or until they are tender but not falling apart. Pull them out, let them cool a bit then throw them on a hot grill or over a campfire for a few minutes, brush your fav BBQ sauce on them, pull them off the fire and enjoy. As an alternative after you pull them out of the beer simmer you can let them cool a bit, dredge in flour and fry them, then toss in buffalo wing sauce if you want. Either way they are a tasty item, serve with an icy cold beer and you'll be lovin life.
