Strange i saw no topics for pigs is there a particular reason for this? im assuming most of you are north america and other cold climates and this might be a problem, other then that any experience of any of you with pigs?

I already saw a video with guys shooting pigs from the air :blushing: so maybe you guys dont consider it an option but i personally like pig a lot and there are lots of way to conserve\store it.

unn,, no,, if it said "Pot bellied" i may have thought that , It reminded me of a neighbor I had once though, He never worked , was HUGE and lived off of welfare his WHOLE life and one time beat up his mother, He finially had a heart attack and died, and i wasnt sorry . He WAS a PIG !

back on topic, When I was a kid , we lived on a farm in Colorado and we had a one eared, one eyed, blind pig named arnold,, he would come running when you called him but he would run into everything on the way,, It was pretty funny,, LOL

We used to do a lot of wild boar hunting out in Texas. Always think of the heads resting on fence posts (like spits in "Lord of the Flies) along the old country roads lol

I bet the same stuff that is done the pig leg that we call "Presunto" (last image in first response) might be done with other animals, might require some cold temperature and only a slight raise in Spring to make it work... i might post a translation of the method, any leg that has an outer layer of fat might be preserved for some time this way.

I bought 25 lbs. (10 kilos) of the finest Presunto (a/k/a Proscuitto) I've ever seen in Ponta Delgada in the 90's.

I was ASSURED that I could legally bring it back into the U.S. And I could have, but NOBODY TOLD ME THAT I HAD TO HAVE A FORM FILLED OUT BEFORE I LEFT THE AIRPORT in Sao Miguel. I declared it on arrival, and the miserable customs guy seized it at Logan Airport. I wonder how he served it when he got home. :sneaky2:

Sergio, ever have a Folar made with Presunto and Chourico? :tongue_smilie:

When Al Gore gets done with Global Warming he'll start on the manbearpig problem. But first, he needs a massage.

i see you almost near Canada how easy is it to get wine over there?

My mother makes Presunto/Chourico Folar twice each year. :)

It's very easy to get wine here. I have about 60 bottles in stock at home, and I live smack dab in the middle of these excellent vineyards.

I like to cut up some andouille and add it to my red beans and rice. It's a cajun sausage made with ham.

Grew up in NE Missouri on a farm. We raised pigs, sheep( ugh) cows and a couple of horses. We did our own butchering, making sausage, salt cured ham in a smoke house. Head cheese and of course chops, roasts pork steak. we also made cracklins, rendered our own lard. We were really self sufficent back then. About the only thing we bought in town was the staples, flour, sugar, salt, pepper rice and beans, oatmeal and of course HOT Sauce. Once in a while I would get a treat of a box of cereal Corn flakes, RIce crispees or shredded Wheat
I hated the sheep DUMB DUMB DUMB, After two years and they had cleaned out the buckbrush and underbrush in the ditches we got rid of them.

I haven't butchered in many a year, but Pork is still high on my list. Bone in Pork chops, breaded, baked or fried, greens, sweet corn on the cob, cornbread, homemade blackberry jam and home churned butter with rhubarb pie for dessert.

Damm I just made myself hungry

I know it is a good thing that I am not of middle eastern decent, I like pork too much. It must be the German hertiage

The best thing about herding pigs is that because they are omnivores you can feed them from the local fast food restaurant/donut shop dumpsters with no ill effects.

I watched a show on, I believe, animal planet call Pig Bomb. No, it's not a bomb to hunt pigs with... It was saying that the wild pig population here in the States and in parts of Europe is expanding at a uncontrollable rate. Ten years ago eighteen states were home to the United States wild pig population, now it's forty states. They said even with heavy hunting and state game control methods, the populations will continue to grow at an alarming rate.

In northern Ohio we don't have a problem but there are wild pigs in southern Ohio. Like the coyote, there's an open season on them.

Another problem the show pointed out is these pigs are becoming more like the Euro-Asian wild bore. A much bigger and more aggressive breed than the American wild pig.

If I want to eat "hog". I go to the woods and shoot one. in about an hour you can have 200 lbs of meat on the front of the boat, heading home. No feeding, and no stinking pen out in the back yard.
I have to agree with pgv on this one. The feral population needs to be reduced before I am gonna go raising any hogs.

While reading this thread the ole lady said, " pork is also a verb". She remembers watching The Simpsons and Bart was writing on the chalkboard, " pork is not a verb".
