Gator Sausage?

Have a lot of gator meat and was thinking about making some gator sausage. I would be using the leg meat mainly and any other random meat off the gator. Dont wanna waste gator tail for sausage. Does anyone have any recipes for it or have had gator sausage before? Is it good?

    I've had it ground into patties with pork fat and spices. Grill it like a burger- good to go.

    Alligator Sausage Recipe

    MAKES: 25-6 inch links

    2 pounds ground alligator
    2 pounds ground pork
    1/2 pound ground pork fat
    1/4 cup chopped onions
    1/4 cup chopped celery
    1/4 cup diced garlic
    1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
    1/4 cup chopped parsley
    1/4 cup sliced green onions
    1/4 cup chopped sage
    1/4 cup chopped basil
    salt and black pepper to taste
    Louisiana Gold Pepper Sauce to taste
    15 feet casing for stuffing

    In large mixing bowl, combine all of the above ingredients with
    the exception of the casing. Add one cup of ice water to the mixture
    and using both hands, blend the ingredients well. Continue to mix
    in a rolling motion until the fat content of the pork coats the
    surface of the mixture. This is imperative if the sausage is to be
    moist and juicy since alligator by nature is quite dry. Once the
    ingredients are well blended, you may wish to check the seasonings
    by sautéing a small patty in a frying pan. Correct seasonings if
    necessary. Stuff the sausage mixture in the hog casing and tie off
    in six inch links. To cook, poach the sausage in lightly salted
    water for three to five minutes. Grill over pecan wood or bake in
    a 375 degree F oven until golden brown, approximately ten to twelve
