How to Clean, Fillet, Debone and Skin an Alligator
This is probably not much use for you who don't live in the deep Southeast but thought I'd pass it along if you're ever find yourselves in the Florida swamps. It's not quite like dressing a deer just more work and knowledge of the animal.
This is a 9 foot alligator that when dressed yields 50 lbs of meat that wholesales for about $8.00 a pound.
Whenever I'm in a restaurant that has gator on the menu I order it. No, it doesn't taste like chicken, but a tough pork however still an interesting meal. It's generally served breaded and deep fried.
