tcan,

I have had raccoon before! Which was basically baked in an oven. As they said I think the smoker would be the best in my thought. But be sure to smoke it well. The one I had tended to be a bit greasy! Probably should have cooked longer.
The stew ideas sounds OK but I would cook it some first.

I'll wait for a few reviews here, before I ever try to eat one.

I too am concerned about disease, but that is because I'm ignorant.

Marinate the meat in Coca-Cola with some diced Vidalia onion and apple slices. Then smoke it over hickory and drizzle it or brush on some of the marinade from time to time to keep it moist.

The best way, IMO, is to boil it first. Don't over boil it, but not to where it is falling off the bone. Then add lots of pepper and BBQ sauce and bake it one to one and one half hours in a 360 degree oven. Bake times may vary, just make sure the meat is completely cooked.
