Havent seen any recipes for beaver. I got two lately that were destroying the lakefront. have four hinds. Not a lot on youtube or the net. Im thinking pat dry, rub olive oil, season, brown in butter, in my huge 16 quart presto and add beef bullion and cook like a pot roast. Any one out there got something for me otherwise. I soaked them in cold water overnight to get the blood out. Brine with a little salt or baking soda is what I used to do with ducks from the Great Salt Lake to get that gamey/ skunky salt lake marsh taste and smell out of them.

Looks like that beaver was a smoker with those teeth!!
Kona77. If you can find a trapper in your area, I am sure that you could get plenty of critters to try, plus plenty of your favorites. Bobcat is another very tasty treat. The most important thing with beaver, is when removing the castor and oil sacs, be mindful of ANY of it getting on the meat! It's best to switch knives after you remove them, as a little bit will leave a very bad taste.
A5C- Looks like a fun event.. I have been to a number of 'wild game" feeds and have tried and liked things like raccoon (and even crow).. I am all for trying new kinds of protein.
"Muskrat is even better! ".. I will have to take your word on that one ..
Muskrat is even better!
First time I have seen a post about beaver on a number of different outdoor/BBQ sites.. Always appreciate feedback on new or different types of protein. Pictures look good..
Beaver tail is very good.
