Barbecued Beaver



  • 1 small or medium beaver

For Tomato Barbecue Sauce:

  • 1-32 oz. bottle ketchup
  • 32 oz. cider vinegar
  • 1 lb. dark brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • 1 tsp. ground red pepper (heaping)

For Traditional Vinegar Sauce

  • 10 oz. Texas Pete
  • 1-32 oz. bottle ketchup
  • 1 1/2 oz. crushed red pepper
  • 16 oz. honey
  • 1 1/2 cups salt


  1. For either of the sauces, mix and simmer 5 minutes.
  2. Remove as much fat as possible from one small or medium beaver. Place beaver in a foil lined roasting pan.
  3. Bake, covered at 350 degrees F. for 1 1/4 hours, starting with the back down and then turning over after half an hour.
  4. Add water if beaver seems to be drying out. Cover with sauce, inside and out and cook uncovered for about half an hour.
  5. Add sauce every ten minutes. Watch closely, tomato sauce will burn easily.
