I eat pigs, I love pig meat! (I do not eat chorizo anymore after having read the label) My father & his brothers ate pork brains & eggs, I could never get around that, tho.

The only animals I ever made friends with were tropical fish. Once I ate a live (bait) anchovy on a drunken dare. Never again.

I wouldn't say we pussy out, but since we don't have the knowledge, skill, equipment etc to process the meat once the pig has been slaughtered and the "killin" is included in the price of processing the meat, we have a guy coming out to do it. He has a special truck with everything he needs already on it. In all honesty, I'm kinda relieved someone else is going to do the deed. I have never done it before or seen it done. It would be terrible for Mrs. Pigglesworth if I missed or somehow did it wrong and she suffered. Anyways, he comes out, Puts her down and then takes her in his truck to be processed into chops, ham, bacon, sausage... Getting the ears and innards for the dogs. Makin pork rinds with the skin. Trying to use every bit I can. We get everything back after it's cured and cut up. About 2 weeks after the kill.



I never said I was a farmer or a badass. I don't think of myself as a badass. I'm just Shadow. And I do everything I can to try and make that piggy happy while she lives. Otherwise what is the point in raising my own pig???

And for fuck's sake, I hope you CAN lift more than a 5'0 100 pound girl, but what the fuck does that have to do with anything?
Bad name for a freezer pig. Just a suggestion, but something more food related does help keep it a little less traumatic. As fer knowledge and experience, start trollin' ads frequented by self sustainers and preppers and you can probably line yourself up with someone doin' a hog killin' next Fall. Obviously desert life follows different cycles, but that's the traditional window out here in the East. Even if all ya do is sharpen knives all day it's the best way to learn IMO. Once or twice and you should be able to muddle through, although a traveling abattoir is pretty slick, if he doesn't charge too much.

Lots of books on the subject. I helped with my first one when I was about 13, but grew up deer hunting, so dressing animals wasn't all that new to me. Tried to call on those memories later and fairly managed to literally butcher up the cuts, but breaking down the primals wasn't really too bad. Just good to have lots of help on hand to help with the lifting and sharpening (ya do dull some blades on them). Check out the Fox Fire series. Lots of good stuff in them.

My wife's taller than you, about the same weight, and still wears her high school jeans (like a size 1 I think), but she's right there with the boys tossin' bales, bagging seed and shovelin' shit. Hell the fodder biscuits we feed weigh about 30 lbs. a piece and she'll take them two at a time.

How do ya type "she's wiry" with a brogue?

Ok guys, I get it. I'm a weakling!

I had spine surgery when I was 13. They put in two 10 inch titanium rods to straighten my spine. Doctor told me I would never be able to lift more than 20lbs after surgery. I DO lift heavier things than that(probably not much heavier tbh), but I try not to push it. I carry the dog food into the house sometimes tho! and that's 40lbs! go me!

Ahhh... there's a thread; "Shit you've eaten on a drunken dare."

Used to be a Survival Instructor, so stone sober I've had everything from inner cambium layer off of fir trees to giant grubs, earth worms, dung beetles, raw seagull and crab, and they all taste like what they eat. Not my favorite but as part of a "when in Rome" sort of respect for someone's hospitality, I earlier tonight got to eat some squirrel brains. Mmm, mmm, good? Not really. Something of an east coast hillbilly delicacy, but I built the guy a boat and he paid in REAL currency, so I would'a eaten squirrel ass to be polite.

If you ever see what and how a possum eats however, you would probably starve before you touched that meat. Once scared one out of a five day old mule carcass that a logging crew had left after it died on their job. Definitely about grossest diet of any mammal alive. They start at the ass and eat in. Yum!

Wonder where Islamic and Jewish dietary laws are with regard to possum?

Chorizo BTW is awesome. Sure you weren't grossed out by chourico, it's Portuguese cousin. That is usually pork sausage with blood added. Sounds bad but it's actually quite good. Same goes for cabrito in blood sauce (can't remember the Spanish name). Baby goat in a super rich sauce... makes a body strong.
Americans and their food aversions will see many of you left to starve along the trail. Most of the world would get fat eating what we throw away.

I would not however eat the commercial chorizo that they sell these days, all wrapped in an imitation plastic casing. That shit is vile just for the quality of "varietal meats" that they find to put in it. Right up there with cheap dog food. The real deal is usually made with pretty good loin cuts, fat, peppers, and spices in a natural casing. Shaushage is gooood.

Nahhh, just buy newer lighter gear. The arctic gear pack I carried in the service was about 120+/-, and that's with me wearing the bunny boots, snow shoes, and probably 20 lbs.of clothing and without any water. Took two of my oldest back packing this past Spring and with just a new sleeping bag, stove and shelter I was less than 50 lbs. of gear with water and food for the three of us. That was using my old pack and frame from REI that's about 40 years old, so nothing like the newest internal framed stuff. Keeps old farts like me goin' back to the woods.

Core and leg work is a huge help too though.

Nope... not the point at all. The weakling shit was directed elsewhere.

Dated a girl in H.S. that had a spine operation like that (no rods though that I can recall). We took her to the shore for a couple of weeks to recoup before the stitches came out. That was straight fucked up when they pulled them though. Some kind of freaky daisy chain type stitch that the doc just wrapped an end around some forceps and pulled it straight up her back as she screamed. Only lasted about 5 seconds, and after her being trapped in bed for several months before that it was a relief, but man was that tough to watch. Little girl like you, with a whole lotta heart. I'd have still been creepin' around like Quasimodo.

You are right, I used to get chorizo from a local up-scale market that made their own chorizo, & at at a reasonable price.

The cheap stuff includes "assholes & snouts" ie ears, lips, various glands, etc. I thought 'you couldnt clean that stuff good enough for me to eat, no matter what you did'

My market stopped selling theirs years ago, sadly.

-corne-

(edit)

My kids raised a '4-H' pig years ago. They actually won a blue ribbon at the fair (Socal Expo).They didnt realize what happens to those pigs after the show. Their grandfather bought the whole pig after it was butchered. He brought up some of it to their house (I was divorced by then) When they realized that was 'Sunshine' (their pig) in those packages, they went vegan for a few years.

Sasquatch seems to be going more pop/mainstream these days but that line up is still awesome.

Yeah, it seems like most of the festivals this year are trending that way this year and there are no "must travel across the country" fests this year.

I'm sure it will still be a blast tho.

Tried to hire some students for a massive acreage yard clean up today. Pay was set at 120$ for the day. Work consisted of cutting bush, busting apart an old wooden barn and chicken coop and lots of burning.
lots of replies that said they would be there...not a single person showed up.
Beautiful sunny day, huge bonfire, easy money, and nothing.
That's our next generation coming up. Won't even do easy work for pay now.

That's like at my work.. Every time someone was hired they wouldn't show up... Or quit a few days later..

Lazy..

I'd do it.
