does anyone smoke wild hog
Yes i do they are good
Yes. I have done ribs and roasts. Excellent stuff! I am currently out of the wild pork and have to settle for the tame stuff!
Do it on a pretty regular basis around here, what do you need to know?
Yes, but I try to stick to the younger sows. The Hill Country and South Texas are full of them!
which ones are best for eating
how do you prepair to eat them (from field to table)
which parts do you smoke
what temp do you use
what wood do you use
anything else i might find helpful
I like 60-80 lb live weight
I skin and gut them and split them down the spine personally
I then slather with mustard apply rub and put on the whole 1/2 pig or whole pig cut spine side down
I try to maintain 225-250 smoker temp
either hickory or oak for me gonna be pecan on the next one tho
i spritz/mop with a 3:1 mix of Apple juice and Captain Morgan's spiced rum every hour after the first hour and a half
how big does the pig have to be to have a good amount of meat on the ribs?
do you have anytricks to skinning and gutting, i have never done before
and do you cut the spine out? or cut it in half?
how many people will a half feed?
Now I'd like to see some Qview or a movie of you preparing piggy
I cook quite a bit of the stuff but mostly prefer sausage, I do like to smoke the back straps though mostly on the sows and smaller boars.
here is how we prep them for processing
The last picture Flatbroke posted is exactly how I prepare them then its just a mustard slather, apply rub, and put it on the smoker. After about 1.5 hours I start spritzing it, sometimes I foil and sometimes not. Thermo in a ham and one in a shoulder.
