    Are you guys serious with the fried gator and beavertail ... or am I being too literal?

    (yup, i'm a sheltered island girl) :eek8:

    Fried gator is awesome. Gator any way is awesome. Marlowe and I had gator chili and gator tacos for lunch.

    What's the meat like?
  4. tonksy Hitting the egg nog New Member

    Sorta a cross between chicken and fish but with a shrimplike consistency.
    The chili we had was ground gator tail which all but disappears but leaves a nice flavor. Most people like it fried. The best way I have ever had it was blackened in a big slab. That's a rare find outside of Louisiana though and kinda pricey even in Louisiana.

    I would be game to try it if ever I go to your neck of the woods :D

    I wish you would get to this neck of the woods.

    The beaver tails are not really beaver meat. They are a pastry type thing similar in idea to the funnel cake but MUCH BETTER! There's only a few places you can get a real genuine beaver tail and those places include the Toronto Zoo, the top of Blue Mountain, the top of I believe Mt Tremblant and I don't remember where else.

    Cinnamon rolls are a fair favorite here.

    How about Loews dairy bar, not 20 minutes from where my arse is parked right this instant. Magnetic hill in NB has not only the dessert Beavertails, but pizza styles too.

    If you read my next post you will see that I admitted there are many many more places than I thought...

    Yes, I'd read that. I was merely pointing out one more thing you missed by not coming up to the cottage.
  13. Nixy Princess Consuela Banana Hammock Elimi-nistrator

    You don't even know how bad I feel for missing out on it. I can't even begin to describe to you my mindset when I lived in Toronto and the disconnect I felt between what I wanted most and my ability to make myself get off my lazy ass and get those things. It's getting much better now but I am still sad about the things I've missed out on.

    You are young ,there are sooo.... many more missed opportunities to come.
  15. Professur I'm just a fungii. Well-Known Member

    And soon to come, the realization that I had heaped upon me at a young age (even younger than you are now): You never get to go back.
  16. Nixy Princess Consuela Banana Hammock Elimi-nistrator

    Oh, I know all too well that you never get to go back. I knew that while I was missing my chance to come visit you at your cottage...I guess that speaks for the slump I was in...it was enough to over come that knowledge.

    Florida and southern Georgia, too- still a high-dollar item.
    When I die, they can chuck my carcass in the Okeefenokee Swamp- I've eaten enough gator over the years- let 'em get a little back!
    :grinyes:

    Heh, heh, heh...She said Gator tastes like chicken...heh, heh, heh...:D

    You know you can get rid of the 'fishy' taste by an hour soak in buttermilk, right? ;)

    With, or without, cheese.

    In a few minutes, I'll be firing up the coals for smoking a pork picnic using Rob Rainford's recipe.
