Thundering Hooves Half Pig

3 posts in this topic

Just ordered one. I saw an earlier post to get the jowl bacon so check on that. Other than that, any recommendations for choosing cuts? I figure I want the pork chops cut into double cut, the bacon with the skin on and the ears, feet and tail for fejoida. Anything else to think about? Never ordered a pig before.

Congrats. Anything near the spine is good. Belly and shoulders are totally versatile. I'm trying to like head and hocks more each year -- please share your discoveries!

I just made a cornish game hen with chestnut stuffing. . .

Would you believe a pigeon stuffed with spam? . . .

Would you believe a rat filled with cough drops?

Pig ordered and arriving in Dec. I couldn't get the ears or anything else with skin as they skin their pigs. Said the big processors scald the animals which is why they can offer those pieces.
