    I had gar when I was a young boy and I can remember it being good. I don't think I would eat it now though.

    Scrape the outsides of those things after you fillet them and that fatty stuff will come right off. They're not bad if you eat 'em hot. I second the tire comment once they get cold though. They're not too shabby on the grill either.
