    I am new here to this forum and new to smoking. I just received a smoker for Christmas. My brother and I took a medium sized boar and have a lot of meat in the freezer right now including two large hams, 1 side of ribs and two loin straps. I am really looking for recipes for these cuts but can't seem to find any. Am I better off not smoking these cuts and just turning the ham into sausage? What do you all think?[​IMG]

    "Wild Boar" or "Feral Hog"?

    Wild Boar, which is roughly half domestic pig and half wild Russian boar. To find a true wild Russian boar is very hard to find around California. Its not a Feral hog, but a hybrid roughly 180-200 lbs.

    I would make sausage out of the hams and slice the loins for boneless pork chops.

    Most of the hogs around here were domestic gone wild.... One gen and a hog will revert back to wild form.... all the ones in my area of Texas have tusks, black, high razorback shoulders and small hams. have seen some that would weigh 800lb plus.... They are very wild.... and taste good![​IMG]

    I like to smoke my wild shoulders and hams just like you would a domistic dri rub and mustard up to 160 then wrap and take up to 200.....
    then we have boritos and taco meat celintro, onion and jalpenos choped up.... fry with the hog meat in a skilet with olive oil 1 large tortia ... LOL

    Yeah, the one we got had tusks about 1-1.5 inches long, very large head with the razorback. Beautiful animal and lives out in the canyons here in CA. I just had concern about the hams because they are bone in and so thick. Wasn't sure if the meat would smoke/cook all the way through?? About how long per lb would you think at say 225deg??[​IMG]

    Not sure how big it is but prob 1-1 1/2 hour per pound,,, but I allways use a meat thermomenter or two and I use em, at 200 the bones will fall out.
    I would wrap them in foil at 160 and then bring em up to 200.

    We got way to many wild hogs here, they tear up alot of my pastures and fences. They run in herds from 10 to 50 ... good luck
     
  11. I've got bunches of wild hogs on my hunting prop, the black razorback with tusks and such. I just took a small sow, 100 to 120 lbs. The guy who dressed it out for me said it was the best meat he'd ever seen on a hog. If I get this smoking thing down, I'll be getting a few more of those bad boys when I don't score a deer.

    The next one I take with be with a bow. I have a Bowtech Guardian that needs to be broken in[​IMG] I think it will be very hard to recover the boar though since its in very bushy terrain where we hunt them.
     
  16. The next time I try that I'll have a .45 on my hip for back up. If that was a bigger male, I may have been in serious trouble after my first shot.[​IMG]

    It seems that alot of the guys round here grind just about everything but the ribs and the loins.

    As far as hunting goes, my brother goes to a place where you can hunt and kill them however you want, Guns, bows, dogs, spears, Rambo Knife, brick in your hand or however you want. The only rule is that you have to be strapping a .44 Mag or you ain't even getting out of the truck. It is a two and a half hour drive to the hospital from the front gate and depending where you are at it could as long to get to the gate. The .44 Mag is for dispatching the pig or the hunter, whichever needs it most.[​IMG]

    Never smoked any but did cover a roast with seasonall and then soaked in coke overnight and baked in the oven once that was really good. Sliced it served with mash tators, corn and mac and cheese.

    Would like to do the same and smoke if I ever get some again?
     
  19. do I need to do something different to wild hog ribs as opposed to all the info here on domestic swine ribs?
