    Well, did you get the meat back from the boar? Are they hanging it for a specific length of time? We never hung the hogs very long; the meat doesn't "break down" like a red meat herbivore and the muscle tissue is different. A friend that was a butcher, said that it was a waste of time to "age" a hog. I just always believed him.... don't know if that is right or wrong.

    We were going to pick him up on the 11th, on Thursday for a neighbor party on Saturday the 13th. But the people hosting the party just spent the first night in their new home, so it was rescheduled for November 3rd. One of Wilbur's hams will show up as pulled pork. Dunno when we'll pick him up, I called and said we were no longer in a hurry for him, just in case the slaughter house needed more time. They are very nice people, family owned and operated.

    I was just curious how much actual meat you got back and if you had eaten any yet. How it tasted and all.

    The pork chops are so big I might have to cut off the end to get them in the skillet! They are thawing now.
