The Kentucky Derby and Fried Rattlesnake

My husband killed a five foot rattlesnake Saturday morning.
Thank goodness he did not come upon it while walking.

Friends gathered in our deer lease "casita" to
watch the Kentucky Derby. We all wished we
had planned ahead and served Mint Julips... next year!
That evening, I served fried rattlesnake (backstrap only) to
the group as we enjoyed the open fire in the huge grilling pit.
Not everyone ate it but more than I thought.
Tasted like... you guessed it... chicken!
I'll post the directions on Foodie Friday.
