I'd give this more stars if I could. I loved this recipe. I've never tried rabbit cooked in this manner but certainly will make it again. I only had 1/2 of a rabbit and didn't need anywhere close to 2 cups of oil but other than reducing the oil to about 1/2 cup I make it as written. It took about 1 1/2 hours to get the rabbit tender. Thanks for posting this great recipe.
