For you would-be urban poachers out there, hitting the zoo or a handbag factory for alligator meat is probably a terrible idea. However, if you can get your hands on some tail legitimately, good for you. To make this, first skin the gator tail, then wash the meat, and cut it into pieces 3-4 inches in size. Beat the egg and milk together, then mix the salt, pepper, garlic salt, Accent, and flour together. Heat the oil for frying, and dip the meat pieces into the egg mixture, then into the flour mix. Carefully place the battered pieces into the hot oil. Cook them until they’re golden brown. For the sauce, mix the pepper sauces, garlic powder, cheese, and butter together in a large bowl. When the tail is done frying, place the chunks in the hot sauce mixture and stir until they are coated.
Heat Scale: Mild to Hot based on what sauces you choose.
