Default Nothing like fresh gator tail

At least this knuckle head thinks so. He entertained his super bowl guests with 5 freshly chopped tails.

I love fresh gator meat, but taking shorties like that on purpose and taking them out of season is wrong. I hope he gets dealt with severely.

I know this may sound a little stupid or naive but do you actually bbq the gator with the head on and the feet like that.

The head and feet don't trouble me as much as if he was cleaned or not.

Most folks I know just cook the tail meat, but if it is properly cleaned, you can do as he did. There is meat all over the gator, just not as much as is in the tail.

As a Northerner unfamiliar with Florida dining habits, I expected this thread to be about life at the University of Florida.

Doesn't say how he got popped by the po-po on this, unless I missed it? Did one of his gator eatin' buddies narc him out, or was he a complete idiot and posted his illegal gators on Facebook or the like for the world to see? Stupid is as stupid does, I suppose.

Somewhere, Wally Gator is crying.

Most places just serve the tail meat. Usually fried in bite size pieces not unlike popcorn shrimp. If you ever get a chance to try them gator ribs are delicious.

I have found the jowls are by far my favorite part of the gator even though I enjoy all of it with the exception of that stringy grey section of the tail they all seem to have.

I'm born and raised Miami and I have never had Gator. Just something about eating a reptile I can't wrap my head around. Especially when it's presented like that.

Make no mistake, I have no problem cooking animals to eat, I just prefer this kind of animal.

Actually a 5-6' gator is just about the perfect size to eat. Not loaded up with mercury yet and nice and tender. As long as it's a legal, tagged gator the size doesn't really matter.

My money is this guy got caught because he cut the tails off and let the rest of the gator rot beside his traps. He doesn't really look that intelligent to me...
