Does anyone know how much of a gamey taste a wild boar has, and what would be the best way to smoke it, should I somehowe get the gamey taste out first or could I cure it and then smoke it or could I just smoke it, anyone have any thoughts, I sure could use the help.

You know I am not sure on that I would think that with proper brining it would help. Some of it would depend on the food that the boar had been eating.

Throw a handful (a Tbs or 2) of crushed juniper berries in your brine, it will help eliminate that wild taste! :roll:
