Rattle Snake Round Up

Wild times were had in Sweetwater at the Annual Rattle Snake Round Up. Julie Richards, of Waco and Julie fame, was on the winning team. Midkiff Mafia BBQ had a great day. They place 1st in rattle snake, 2nd in brisket and 10th in chicken. That gave them just enough points for the Grand Champion call in this Lonestar Barbeque Society event. Julie was going to make a snake meatball using my Chipotle Bomber recipe as a guide, but they were thrown a curveball and had to change the recipe at the last-minute. This year the judges decided to make the teams turn in snake on the bone, so they could be sure it was indeed snake. So it’s a little tough serving meatballs with bones, so she changed at the last moment. I will try to get some pics up later of the winning team. Julie had to take off early because her and Waco were singing over in Midland. So she missed the awards. Check out the link from here to Waco and Julie’s site and go see them sometime if they are in the area. Congratulations to Bernie Phillips and the Midkiff Mafia BBQ team.

    they were told to turn in only snake on the bone not snake wraped in bacon and with toothpick in them what do think ?????

    • Richard I was told that in the passed meats besides rattlesnake had been used and substituted. So they had them turn it in still on the bone so that they coulde be sure it was indeed snake. As for as adding to it I believe yo can seasone and add to it how you want, inorder to make an appetizing dish. The dish should not overpower the snake it should complement the snake and enhance it not cover it up.
