A couple things come to mind. First, soak that beaver in salt water or buttermilk for at least a day. Then turn it into something heavily spiced, like taco meat. Think of the Irony of beaver in a taco. Beaver like Muskrat has a strong wild taste to it. Most people don't care for it. Soaking and being carefull about hair in the meat helps this taste. I'd go for a Beaver Taco salad, heavy on the green pepper, cucumber, tomato, onion, cheese and ranch dressing. I use McCormick taco seasoning with a little extra chilli powder. Throw in a can of green chillies if you like. You could serve skunk in that and people would eat it.

Only way I have ever had it was barbecued. Tastes a lot like anything else barbecued. Not like chicken though.

I trap beaver in the winter and had a man call me wanting a couple of beaver carcases' to eat. After talking with him I decided to try some myself. I barbecued a litttle bit and it was'nt bad. I was told later the man I had given the carcases to fixs his like beef stew and is unbelievably good......sounds good to me.

Probably like you cook Carp... nail the meat to a pine board, cook over open flame... once finished cooking, throw the meat in the trash and eat the pine board.
