I was wondering how many of you use Berkshire pork for your smoke  and what ever you cure ?

The more i read up on them the more i want some...do you all order your Berkshire pork from the butcher or from a local store ?

I raise Berkshires.. they are tasty.  A bit sweeter meat in my opinion., but then like any pork, it depends on how they are raised.

 I like to butcher the younger ones for whole hog cooks. They are so tender.....
