    Foxes will eat just about anything. If you cook it I will eat it. Might want to let it sit out in the hot sun about 2 weeks to mellow out before chowing down. Your creative. Later-----Nosey :)

    I must say my eyes bugged out when I saw the title of this recipe. Then I was intrigued. I found the story behind it fascinating. I have a book written by Bret Harte called Gold Rush filled with short stories such as "The Outcasts of Poker Flat" and "The Luck of Roaring Camp" and so on. It's about life of miners and pistol packing preachers and iron willed women. This is what this recipe reminded me of. Thanks for the chuckle JoyMarie.
