My neighbor trapped some hogs last night. I took the 2 smaller ones and his buddy took the rest. I deboned the hind quarters and took the back straps. Plan on doing some bacon.
I’ve tried to cook wild pork a bunch of different way, and I have yet to find one that tastes good. Good luck, and please post back how it turns out.

Being an old yankee, this is all new to me. Seems like people I talk to out here either really like wild pig or they hate it. I'll be seeing how I like it soon enough.

Crockpot! Have done a handful of ways, but our go-to is a roast/couple big chunks in the crock with some seasonings and then shred and put back into the juices to soak up all the flavor. I’ll tack on the recipe.

Throw it all in, let it cook all day, pull out and shred. I usually just dump juices through a wire strainer and recombine meat and juice. We usually eat as a sandwich, but however works!

So what you’re saying is if you add enough spices you can even make wild pig edible? :roll:

Sounds a bit like what you hear about bear, or antelope, or caribou or mountain lion. All good stuff if you handle it right. Outside of the occasional outlier... I’ve butchered steers that were tough going. Which really stinks when you’re looking at a whole freaking steer and the kids really prefer elk anyway.

No meat loss with that shot! :D Although, I remember a guy who went by the name of Loggy who loved eating the brains of hogs. :oops:

Hahaha! A local butcher when I was a kid used to make it without the brains added. Then it’s just cheek meat and, well, everthing but the ears I guess. Goood stuff! My grandma cooked the brain and sliced much of it for frying like people do with heart... the smaller pieces were minced in with the rest of the head meats. I’m telling you, this is excellent stuff! Great sandwich meat! I was in Honduras years ago, and eating in public is somewhat dicey. Not everyone down there loves us and also sanitation is not exactly up to the usual standards. Or that was the case back then. Anyway, when we were in town we’d eat chicken a lot, no fresh vegetables really. In Tegucigalpa there was a guy who loved us and fed us an excellent pork head soup and head cheese too. That and a local brew I have forgotten the name of, I would prefer it to fine french cuisine...
