    A big hello to you fellow members. As a new member
    I would like to offer some simple advise about the meat on snappers. It seems like everywhere on the net that I have read about cleaning turtles people talk about the front and hind quaters of the turtle However, I've never read any mention about the neck meat. This is a very meaty piece.It also has a lot
    of white meat on it. I'ts very good and well worth
    the trouble of obtaining. Is anybody else doing
    this? If not,give it a try I'm sure you will love
    it!!!

    i like the neck best as well i consider it the tenderloin of sorts, just stick a stick in front of the head when snapper graps it elongate its neck and cleave off close to the head

    I think the neck is more tender and I also like the tail.
