I have thought about getting some beetles but have not committed to it. Just been simmering all mine. I skin the head first first though and trim off a lot of the meat. Cuts WAY down on the cook time. Only in the pot about 4 hours if you skin the head out first then hit it with the waters hose with a semi-high pressure spray. Scramble the brain a little and it will all spray out easily. From there just a little picking takes maybe a half an hour generally, let it dry a day or 2 then whiten however you want, paint etc. Really is nothing to it. Other than just watching the water bubble it's only about an hours worth of work.
