    Glad you liked that sauce--I only use it on pork, but it's a keeper for sure. Full disclosure, I straight up stole the recipe from thesmokering.com

    I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say the finished pig is, in fact, finished.

    Silver Wings,
    The Chipotle slaw dressing is pretty simple. Make your basic creamy dressing. Buy some cans of Chipotle Peppers in adobe sauce. Pour the cans into a blender with all the juice. Blend and add contents to the dressing. Folks really like it.

    I bought the Piglet from a custom meat shop. I really recommend brining and injecting a Piglet as outlined to end up with nice moist meat.

    There was a young guest at the dinner who said he would send me photos of the finished Piglet but never did. What's the matter with kids today? Use your imagination, it was light to dark golden brown color. The skin turned out nice for eating.
    The only thing left after the dinner was the bones and the trotters.

    Store bought... although domestic pigs and wild pigs are identical anatomically speaking, their outward appearances are very distinct. FWIW, wild pigs can be domesticated, so there are examples of domesticated pigs that “look” like wild pigs.

    Out here it's about 50/50 wild looking to barn yard looking.
    That hog looks store bought to me, if it wasn't whoever prepped it was a professional.

    Dan,

    The Piglet came from Buds Custom Meats in Penngrove. It was gutted, scraped, washed, and chilled. All I had to do was brine and butterfly.
