Tennessee Campfire Snake
Catch, kill, clean, and skin a snake. To clean it, cut around at the neck (in the same place where it would wear a necktie) and then cut down along the belly all the way to the end. Peel the skin off. (You can spread the skin, scale side down, onto the side of the house or on a long plank. Secure it with thumbtacks. Spread a thin layer of salt over it. After a week of sun, it'll be dry.) Cut along into the belly and remove the innards. Cut off the head. Clean and wash. Take a green branch, peel the bark off, and sharpen the tip. Poke the neck onto the sharpened tip. Wrap the snake loosely around the stick Shake on a bit of salt and pepper. Roast it over a fire.

Ummm, crazy. Can you really light a match from hot oil?

The second recipe lost me a bit but hey, on a Friday night I've been known to do some crazy things.
