Timber or Diamondback?

Timber Rattlesnakes are protected and listed as a threatened species in Texas.

Soak the meat in milk over night. Then act like its fish. Smaller strips seem to do better. Roll it in eggs then use some Louisiana fish fry crispy mix. If you cut to big of chunks it can be a little chewy. Strip it and fry it!

Thanks CornSlinger. I got a mess of bream that need to be eaten and was thinking the fish fry mix would work. Love that Louisiana Fry in the blue package.

FIL grilled one last year. We use Fiesta's Uncle Chris' Steak Seasoning on everything. It was good. Fried would've probably been better. Anything fried........

I agree on the small pieces and deep frying, but how do you get rid of the rubber taste after you've run over it numerous times?��

I did the fish last night and worked the snake in. The bream fillets were better. Rattler was a little chewy. Wife wasn't pleased and said she lost her appetite.

Here is how we cooked this year on our javi hunt... And they were eating it over crappie!!!!

Once you have meat skinned and gutted. Cut into 3"-4" sections. Use the yellow bottle of bisquik pancake batter... But instead of water to mix use beer.... We used coors original... Cause that's how we roll

Coat sections in batter and throw in a fish fryer, turkey fryer, fry daddy... Whatever

You will have 2 "backstraps" to eat and the rib meat, you just bite and roll of ribs. Easy and clean


It was actually very good. I've tried it grilled and chicken fried and it sucked both ways... This was enjoyable

Did one a couple years ago and just put a good rub and grilled it. Everyone thought it was great. I thought much better than fried.

I've marinated and grilled 2 recently and they were good. The texture is a little chewy, but hey - it's a snake. There's a reason you don't see them in the butcher case at Albertson's.

as far as tough, I'd say not that bad. I thought it was a lot better than some we had at a restaurant at Grand Canyon.

When my son was young I had cooked one. Then he kept asking for me to cook another and I used chicken for many years (he was young). At some point I had to come clean and tell him what he remembered was chicken. So that was a good reprieve for me.

When my Yankee in-laws are in town, they like me to make them rattlesnake chili. I parboil the meat, pick the meat from the bones, chop it fine, and use it in my regular chili recipe. It's pretty good, and they get to go back to New Hampshire and brag about eating rattlesnake in Texas. I guess they think that we eat it all the time down here.

I have a recipe, but I need to be really drunk to remember it and then drink a few more to know if it tastes right. So, I don't think I can help you while I am at work

Killed one on the lease a few months back. skinned it out and used some Bolners Fiesta chicken fajita seasoning on it. Cut it into 3" pieces pan fried in light oil and my 5 year old daughter and I inhaled it. My darling wife on the other hand wouldn't touch it.

Skin it. Hang it from a tree to dry out about four hours and eat it like jerky. Good and cures cancer too.

the only way I've ever eaten them is fried; cut them into 1" thick steaks and batter them... a lot of hot oil and they're done, just like frying fish. good eating IMO.
