  • $5 Pig Head

    I've decided to jump into the blogosphere with my take on traditional recipes with a primal/paleo slant.

    Check out the $5 pig head I recently purchased and chicken kalamunggay

    I did something like that. Ate for 3 weeks on a $5 head.

      Your pics and descriptions are terrific.

      Did you do anything special with the ears? I've been thinking of trying pig ears and wonder if you like them or if they're weird in any way.

        Thanks Joanie!

        Ears are great! Mmmmm....the chewy cartilage and crispy skin. I removed them from the head and roasted longer to get them extra crispy.

              Ahh, you beat me to it.

              I've been a cheek eater/lover since I was knee high to a grasshopper.
              We'd BBQ a whole pig and there I'd be begging for some cheek meat ()... and crunchy skin of course... while the rest of the bunch was back there working on the body. Silly peoples.

                That's pretty badass. I wish I could do a pig's head. I think I would have to look for a new home if I brought one home.

                  Aunt and uncle had a pig roast last summer, coincidental to the announcement that they were about to become grandparents, and it was me and the pig roast cooks angling for those cheeks... I mean, they're like butter...

                      My wife wanted nothing to do with that head, she didn't want it in the fridge. I had thaw it in an ice chest outside and wait till she was gone to butcher it.

                      The cheeks were damn good!

                        How funny! I am planning on picking up a bunch of pork from them at the farm soon

                          Very nice kitoi. Great looking food. Now I am wondering if I could get my wife to eat it. Good to see you around still

                            I've ordered a pig head from the local butchery, so... lol, now all I need is a camping stove. It was bad enough when I started coming home with bone marrow and deer livers... if I try to cook this thing in the kitchen, I don't my family would ever willingly use the pans again xD

                            Kitoi - I saw you couldn't get the brains out of the skull before you made a broth out of it. If you boiled the brain in the broth, how did that effect the final outcome? Did you have some sort of grey gooey jelly in the cranium cavity when you were done, or could you get it out by boiling?
