Have had both! But, I bought mine from the market. I like them(frogs legs)... fried! But great anyway. You can cook squirrel just like a rabbit. Put it in a slow cooker/crock pot and let it cook. Onions, garlic, salt, black pepper and a little curry powder. You can throw in some carrots also with the squirrel. My parents are from Kentucky so that is how I learned about all of this.
