Oh yeah, the jowls were excellent as with most critters.
My wife was broken in to that kind of stuff well before we got married and she'll try just about anything - loved the gator. At our reception my brother gave a speech where he warned her not to be surprised to find strange animal carcasses in our kitchen sink... I usually process and eat a snapping turtle every year - usually only one because they are a pain in the rear to butcher. I am trying to figure out a way to smoke it similar to the gator, with same stuffing. I'm thinking smoking for about 3 hours then tightly wrapping until tender like I do a venison shoulder.
