Wild boar prep

Recommended Posts

I've been asked to deal with a wild boar (think its more of a ****** off pig) for someone. So i was wondering what is the best way of cleaning the carcass, I know some use a blow torch and scrapper even heard of someone using a steam cleaner  or skinning the same as any thing else, what do you good people of PW recommend?

Boiling water in a bath, light a fire under an old steel bath. That's the way I've seen New Zealand type hogs done

Just skin it (or better still get someone else to do it!!)

Depending in the size and how much fat is on it it can be surprisingly easy compared to deer.

Last one I shot was 20 stone and I didn't fancy dealing with that especially after trying to get it into the truck!

Yes, just skin it. All of those we shot out in Texas we just skinned and the same for those we took in to the local processor they just had the skin off.

The ones I shot in Slovenia got whisked off within the hour to Italy for processing so didn't see the way they did it.

Wild boar backstraps roasted, take some beating. Pull up the Barbecue Pit Boys on youtube and I am sure they will have a recipe to suit.

I prepare them as you would do a deer. Firstly, I'm not set up for scorching/scolding the skin. Secondly, there can be a bad taste associated with the skin and fat. This seems to be dependent upon what the animal has been eating.

If you enjoy crackling then skin your wild boar, call in at the local butchers and ask if they have any 'crackling' i.e  a piece of skin and a layer of fat, which you can then lay over the wild boar joint when you cook it.
