Hhhhhmmmmmm. Never tried smoked rabbit. Tastes like chicken, tho, so maybe use a recipe for smoked chicken? :mrgreen:

Why do folks always say things "taste like chicken"? I for one am really happy rabbit taste like rabbit, not chicken.

As to the original question about smoking, never tried it, but it would seem a light rubbing of your favorite spice and a nice slow smoking would make it tasty.

I might wrap it in bacon so as to not dry out. I'd certainly try it. It might be a lot like smoked pheasant. I always skin my pheasants as it too hard to pluck them.

Since rabbit season is here and I love hunting bunnies, does anyone have a good recipie for smoking them?

We raise meat rabbits and every now and then we smoke up one or two.
They are good but with no fat you can turn them to jerky if you don't watch it.
Make sure to brine them over night, use your imagination with the spices.
Fresh rosemary, thyme, sea salt, onion, pepper flakes are always good.
Skeeter said to use bacon, which does help to keep from drying out.
Be sure to wet smoke and use a sweeter wood for smoking. ie. Apple, or pecan wood is good.
Stay away from hickory as it over powers the taste of the rabbit.

Send up smoke signals and let us know how it turns out.
