I love to eat beaver, especially the hairless kind :yes: honestly though, I have never had real beaver meat before.

It's good, I usually crock pot it. Just be sure not to let the meat come in contact with the castors.

The "Hams" are the best...much like roast beef!! I do the crockpot, plus I have made stew, grilled poppers and sausage.

VERY good and tender ,when you hear about beaver tail they mean the meaty part of the tail covered in hair not the gristly glob of fat that's their built in rudder!

This is from the Illinois thread. My favorite way to eat beaver.

I spent a lot of time making sure all the fat was off the hind quarters and back. Cut it into small pieces and marinated it in teriyaki marinade for several hours and then cooked it in an electric frying pan. Came out pretty good and was eaten by several people that had never had it before, but enjoyed it.

I eat beaver whenever we trap one. I believe my grandma cooks it in a crokpot, but I really don't remember. It does taste good, and when we trap one, its a treat!

I have ate the younger beavers and we panfried them like rabbit. Made really good gravy. I would think the reason everyone slow cooks the larger beavers is they might be tough but, I haven't eaten one so I don't know from experience.
