Default squirrel recipes? tips?

My son really wants to kill some squirrels and eat them. We have plenty in the yard he can take out with a bb gun. I just need a good recipe for when he does this.

A few years ago I shot several because they were eating the fruit from my peach and apple trees. I fried them up and my kids, especially my daughter, loved them.

They were a bit tough. I think I remember my grandmother putting them in a pressure cooker to soften them up and then putting them in gravy - kind of like chicken fried steak.

Pressure cooker mix some gravy powder and water put the squirrls on top of the insert that keeps meat above bottom of cooker. When done the bones will be off the meat and taste great no game taste and tender. Skin and cut the squirell up into quarters and pan brown before pressure cooker.

Go to survival school. Skin them and shove a stick into them. Burn over a fire.
Squirrel has less meat than a chicken leg.

skin them, quarter them up, and place on a cedar board. Get the grill nice and hot, place the cedar board with them little rascals right above the hottest part of the nice fire. Cook for 7-10 mins. Carefully remove, scrap them tree rats off the board into the garbage, and eat that cedar plank. Bon Appetit!!
