Instructions

Pulled Barbeque Bandit Raccoon Instructions:

• Using fresh water, bring cut up raccoon meat to a boil then turn heat to medium and continue boiling for 1½-2 hours until meat is soft enough to pull from the bone, then strained cool meat off.

• For the sauce, place fat in heated skillet then fry onions and garlic until golden brown. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a light boil stirring occasionally for 5 minutes.

Assembly:

• Serve on the buns along with coleslaw and side of potato salad.
