    We were having a big BBQ at church, And a guy that raises rabbits asked if I would smoke some.
    So I jumped at the chance to see how tame rabbits turns out on the SmokinTEx.
    Well he brought 6 of them to me cleaned and ready for the smoker. I put my rub on 5 of the 6 ( He had one seasoned hot) covered the rabbits with it.

    Take the rabbits that are cleaned and ready to go.
    Spray down with pam cooking spray. Then cover with seasoning.
    I placed them in the middle of the smoker on racks turned belly up.
    Smoked at 225 degrees for one hour. Then placed them in foil and brushed a little butter on the insides of them.
    Let them smoke for one more hour laying in the foil but not closed up in the foil.
    Then one more hour with the foil closed. They were tender and juicy. And the taste was great.
    This was my first time to every try rabbits.But let me tell you they were a hit and every piece of them were gone. And People were asking for more of them.
