Re: Pig Hunting

I had a 4 lb ham from a 70lb pig I shot back in the spring.

I followed the directions from amazingribs.com to create a picnic ham. It soaked for 9 days in a brine solution and then 6 hours on the smoker finished with a home made mustard BBQ sauce.

It fed 6 and there wasn't a scrap left.

Re: TX: Austin man acquitted of criminally negligent homicide in shoving death

The second link has a couple similar stories that had different outcomes. This sounds like it was a bench trial and the judge was sympathetic to the defendant. I wonder if a jury would have been as sympathetic.

I'm glad he was found not guilty.

Re: Pig Hunting

On taking care of the meat;

Removing as much of the fat and connective tissue as possible will help a lot with the gamey taste. Not nicking the bladder or intestines also helps quite a bit.

I have eaten both boars and sows up to 175# and had no issues.

Re: 3000 accidental deaths per year

Food poisoning is very rarely the last thing you ate. In the case of C. diff, it definitely wasn't the last thing you ate. You could have been a carrier for years and something just gave it a chance to grow. The romaine outbreak hasn't hit the southern states. I wouldn't follow the advice given in t...

My mom has had one for awhile. It really hasn't slowed her down that much though. She's in her 70's.
