Thanks kb 21. I'll keep that in mind. JHCC, sounds like a good time getting together with other smiths! My anvil stand is coming along. Got it leveled up, now some feet are getting welded on. So slowly but surely getting there.

Sorry, Jennifer, our little hammer-in was missing you.  If I invite the young ones over in a couple weeks I’ll be sure to beg your attendance! Seriously, I love watching you teach.

Rabbits;  long eared rats that have enough meat on them to be worth raising for food and fur. . . . Mmmmmm, HASENPFEFFER!

I'll take rabbit stew, but you can keep the vinegar. Understand why they do it though, rabbit can be tough.  It's really good in a gumbo.

Adolf meat tenderizer or a nice slow braise helps considerably. I like vinegar though. Gumbo Mmmmmm.

Acid denatures the protein causing it to unwind a little making it tender a little like heat from cooking. That's why I always add vinegar or some other acidic liquid to meat marinades. It adds more than flavor.

One of my specialties is rabbit dumplings. Tastes great and is good if you are using an older rabbit.  Same with an older chicken. Younger rabbit is more tender and flavorful. I fry those like chicken and that's some good eating. Fills you up quicker than chicken also so makes it go a long way.

Shouldn't folk be posting some rabbit recipes in Vulcan's Grill? I'm imagining rabbit dumplings with a piquant dipping sauce. Mmmmm.

I had really tasty results with a young cotton tail in the field once. I built a low fire and made a tee pee from branches over it to contain the smoke and basted it with a Pepsi Ketchup mix. 

I'm really fond of Newman's Own "Garlic and cheese" Italian dressing for a marinate but it can over power the subject so I dilute it some.

Oh my word!  Your work is absolutely beautiful.  I'm going to have to think twice before I post any pictures of the things I make.  You are the consummate artists, alexandr.

Thank you, Chris. I will exhibit less. But many photos at a time.:D

A couple more photos. Sent the fireplace screen to Galveston, the second week the customer is trying to install it. I usually do this job in half an hour. I'm trying to explain in my "English" how to do it.
