Hello from Watertown, Tennessee, 35 miles East of Nashville. I joined today because it's pig slaughtering season in Middle TN and we're doing our first pigs this year, which means I'll have a lot of questions about curing and smoking. We just processed our barrow male Hereford/OSB cross, he weighed 580 pounds. After putting him down and bleeding him out, dragging that big boy out of a muddy pig pin was a heck of a chore.
Looking forward to a lot of good eating and smoking ventures.
