This is a great and easy rabbit recipe. Use young fresh rabbits for a better result. Cotton tails are particularly well suited for this recipe. Jack Rabbits, not so much.



  • Barbecue Sauce
  • 2 medium onions, finely chopped
  • 2 green peppers, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup cider vinegar
  • ½ cup ketchup
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup butter or margarine, cut up
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 wild rabbits, cut up



Heat oven to 300°. In medium saucepan, combine all barbecue sauce ingredients. Cook over medium-high heat until bubbly, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat. Simmer 10 minutes. Arrange rabbit pieces in single layer in 13 x 9-inch baking pan. Pour sauce evenly over rabbit pieces. Bake until tender, 2½ to 3 hours, turning rabbit pieces occasionally.
