"I've had guinea pig. In Peru everyone has a guinea pig hutch in back. All the waste material from the kitchen goes to the hutch for 'post consumer recycling'. The street vendors sell barbecued g-pig on skewers. Flesh is pale, a bit darker than chicken breast. Flavour depends on what you feed it. I got one pig that had been fed on fish guts. Tasted like tuna. Don't know how winter hardy they are."
Seems like a huge skinning hassle but I gotta wonder what they would taste like on a tripe diet?? Maybe chicken heads? Do you have to worry about mad pig disease if you just want them to taste like guinea pig? The winter hardiness would be a definite plus though, and come to think of it, a Guinea fur coat might be nice.
