~ 1-2 young raccoons - cleaned and cut into pieces
~ 1 cup ketchup
~ 1/2 cup cooking oil or butter
~ 1/4 cup brown sugar
~ 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
~ 1 tbsp garlic powder (or to taste)
~ 1 tbsp. onion powder (or to taste)
~ 1 tbsp salt
~ 1/4 cup lemon juice
~ 1 tsp pepper
First, make sure when you were dressing these critters, you have removed the "kernels" (scent glands) from under the arms and legs. They leave a distinct flavor if you don't.
In a large pot, place the meat in slightly salted water enough to cover.
Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until almost done.
Remove from the water and place on a hot grill over medium heat.
Coat with sauce and grill to taste. Turn and baste often.
Serve and Enjoy!
