Basically what I have always done is cut out the back strap of the cats, and cube them into about 1" squares. Batter em up with corn meal, throw em in the fryer. Mix up a nice batch of hush puppies, cut some taters, and warm some baked beans and you are good to go. Finish off with a nice glass of sweet tea. Dinner for a winner there.

cut them up into decent size chunks and I will either batter and fry them or use cajun seasoning and blacken them, cajun catfish is awesome!

Put them on tinfoil and grill them with butter and seasoning. Otherwise broil them the same way.

If youhave enough of them do this. Fillet them and then place the fillets in the blender or food processor. Grind the fish up into fish flakes. Now take some corn meal and make fish patties out of the fish flakes. Place the patties on a greased cookie pan and when the pan is covered take some wax paper and cover the patties. Then start a new row of patties and another and another until the fish is gone.

Freeze the patties in the freezer. Next winter when you weant a good lunch go down to the freezer and take a few paties out of the freezer. Fry them until they are golden broan and serve them over toast. Then makes some cream peas and cover the toast and fish with the cream peas. mmmm good! Trust me!

What I do is take fillets dip in flour then in milk with 1 egg then in panko flakes with tons of canjun seasoning While i do that i have a cookie pan on the grill getting hot. Then I put some olive oil on cookie sheet and put fillets on the oil. about 5 min or so a side. I like putting the fillet on french bread with lots of tarter sauce.

    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
