One of my favorite things ...Rabbit on the BGE......Bought a nice fresh rabbit and washed it up and patted it dry.I marinated it for 10 hours in a Presidents Choice citrus marinade...this works fantastic on rabbit.

I fired up the BGE with some lump charcoal and 4 blocks of cherry for a little added smoke flavor....I had the plate setter in the egg so I could cook with an indirect heat.

Rabbit being so lean I like to brush it with a little evoo halfway through the cook for some added moisture and it browns up the skin a little.

I cooked it for an hour at 375-400 degrees....internal temp of 170 is where I like it.

I served it with some fresh green salad and rice balls.

Man that looks awesome! I love rabbit, but rarely have it as it's too damn expensive down here to justify buying it.

It's better to be hated for being who you are, than loved for being who you are not.

I know what you mean about the price....Years ago you could buy fresh rabbit for $8-10 apiece....now its $22.

That looks delicious! I used to eat a lot of cottontail rabbit when I lived in New Mexico. There is basically an unlimited supply in the desert. You can only hunt them to eat during certain times of the year due to the risk of bubonic carrying fleas on their fur, though.

I am not a big fan of wild rabbit...I pretty much stick with nice corn fed raised rabbits......At one time every Italian that I worked with would raise them in their backyards......city put a stop to all the backyard farmers.....My sister lives north of the city and has chickens....trying to talk her into rabbits but she wants no part of that.

That looks fantastic. I need some rabbit now. My siblings and I ate a lot of "four legged chicken" growing up. I have early memories of learning to skin rabbits at one of those backyard "farms".

Looks great ^^ I love Rabbit, my Grandmother use to make a rabbit stew once a week when I was younger. It's gotten really hard to find and expensive here. I can get like 4-5 fresh lobsters for the price of a rabbit. Cheers
