Why is this guy dumping pigs? Is his freezer full already?

Congrats on the free meat. Now you need a smoker for the bacon. :drool:
I don't know what is up with him and the pigs. They are tearing up all the peoples' land that live in that area and are quite a costly nuisance. Some of the other neighbors just blast em when they see em too. Dunno. He did say that there are about 9 piglets still running around, so I may get one or two of those. That should be interesting.

Woot, I will have the weber fired up later this week. I'll probably dig out my cures and seasoning to at least get a buckboard bacon out of one of the shoulders. ;)

Why would you need to? If the foods cooked properly…

Bought me a skinning/ boning knife. I was literally packing my butchering go bag when Tom called to say that he is ready to shoot another pig. I asked him to hold off for a day or two. I talked the wife into getting a pig only chest freezer. I have watched hours and hours of youtubes on how to butcher a pig. I'm ready. I should have my 3rd opportunity, which is really my 1st now that I think I know what the fuck I am doing, to butcher a pig in the next few days. I picked up a folding plastic table to part it out into primals. I have my battery sawzall to section that fucker off in to two halves. Hacksaw to section out the the 3rds and for some baby back ribs. Let's fucking go!

I might even get a piglet which I will try to smoke whole.

He needs to get rid of his representative before worrying about meat because if she keeps going the way she is, the only meat that will be available on that island is human...

HA! No. But I am in the market for one. That was the wife's first response, to which I said that I have been googling about for one. Shit, I am thinking about setting up a stall at the local farmer's market and selling sausages. We make killer food.

I'll have some pics and a story. I'm currently curing some ham(?) to make buckboard bacon. I'll be firing up the smoker on Thursday to do bacon and cook the ribs. I'm noodling out on where I can set up a cold smoker in the yard. Fun times!

But because we are getting another freezer, the wife has drawn a line in the sand that she wants a generator now. Things are happening over here! Threaten me with a good time. :)
