This recipe for Barbecued Rabbit can be used with either wild or domestic rabbit meat. I used domestic rabbit in this recipe because we raise Flemish Giant rabbits. If you are using wild rabbit the cooking time may be a little longer depending on the type and age of the rabbit; parboiling could also be an option.
