    Take a butchered rabbit a big or small as you want, Season it to your taste.
    Place it in a baking pan facing down,
    Cover it with tin foil, Turn oven to 225*, place rabbit in the oven for 3 hours,
    Remove and turn over on its back, recover, place back in the oven for an additional hour
    Its ready!!!!

    Take a Rabbit and debone it,
    This guys incredibly good at it, takes me 10 minutes
    Season the inside, stuff with Red, Yellow, Orange Sweet Peppers and Swiss Cheese
    Tuck the ends in and roll it until it resemble a pork roast, Wrap it in Bacon completely
    Preheat oven to 350* place rabbit in a covered pan and let cook for 90 minutes (60 min. if you don't stuff it).
    Remove lid and turn on broiler for about 5-10 minutes to crisp up some of the bacon
    The broth makes wonderful Gravy.

    I found a faster way to cook Rabbits and get very similar result as slow cooking.
    Place seasoned rabbit in a pressure cooker with 2 cups of water, put on high heat and let steam exhaust for 10 minutes, place the weight on and set timer for 35 minutes.
    If you want a stew just add a 3rd cup of water and all your veggies. I found the problem with that is the Rabbit literally falls apart and its hard to deal with the bones.
    We have 2 pressure cookers so I do them separately.
    When you pressure cook them as opposed to slow cooking them you use a lot less electricity.
    They taste slightly different but not enough to make a real difference.
    On the UP side you can have an entire meal in 1/2 an hour ready to go!

    Mmmmm, sounds soooo good. Last gathering A lady skinned one out and prepared it. I deboned and cut it up into. Placed it into a 4 quart stew pot and lightly browned it in olive oil/seasonings. Added veggies and cooked slowly till veggies done. After seconds and thirds there was nothing left but a small bit of juice.

    Every time I cook it, never ceases to a amaze me how much it smells like baked chicken.
    With the all meat prices going up through the roof, many more will eventually get tired of paying so much and turn to raising Rabbits.
    Its already happening, the demand is outweighing the supply.
    Rabbits cannot be raised commercially, like other meat sources because they require finesse or they die. As a result, small farms and breeders are required for this.
    I saw an article on Rabbit meat the other day, its selling for $7.99 a pound. That's a pretty good payoff considering it only costs about a $1 per Rabbit to raise them to 3-4 months.

    Hard to beat rabbit. Easy to raise, will eat most anything organic, garden veggie scraps never go to waste, and the "poop" is fantastic fertilizer--not to mention a great worm bed.

    It's not that easy pulling the backbone out! I have done it 20-25 times his way and it never comes out that smoothly.It may be that the rabbits he was doing were frozen or refrigerated for a few days, mine are always right off the hoof.
    I have an easier way, I taped that as well. My Daughter timed me butchering the rabbits, I average out at a minute and a half.
    I usually do about 8 at a time, but I got lazy and skipped a batch so last time I had 20 to do, that was grueling!
