I've never smoked a squirrel - but cant imagine it would be different than any other meat.

Inject, brine or cover with bacon (if they are lean), cover it up with some of your favorite rub, and throw em in...

cook him until he's done...

try one at 275. shouldnt take very long since they are so small.

do one at a time, take notes and i'd bet you will have it figured out quickly.

I don't think any of our Smoke Ring forum members who are squirrels (or acorn-challenged) would think this is very funny!!!

I ususally grill them. Smoking would work too. I marinade them in 2 parts pineaple juice/ one part cider vinegar/ one part brown sugar overnight. Wrap them in a good sugar cured fatty bacon then grill using indirect heat till meat is 165 degrees. They are a tad chewey and low fat so indirect gilling wrapped in bacon works well. When 90% done start saucing them with some good old open pit. Yes I did say Open pit. It works well with squirrel and belive it or not rabbits cooked the same way.
