There's only two ways I have found to cook a decent rabbit, slow BBQ or slow oven roast. Here is my favorite BBQ recipe.


2 rabbits, quartered

1 cup olive oil

¼ cup vinegar

¼ cup red wine

1 small minced onion

2 cloves minced garlic

Juice from ½ lemon

5 tablespoons catsup

4 tablespoons A-1 sauce

¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

Dash of Tabasco

¼ teaspoon black pepper

Combine all ingredients except the rabbit in a medium saucepan. Mix well and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring frequently.

Place the quartered rabbits on a medium-hot grill. Baste the rabbits generously every 5 minutes with the sauce mixture, turning frequently.

It will take about 40-50 minutes until they are done, make sure you have used all of your sauce. With this recipe the sauce is the key!!
