    Meat options - wild boar

    Shop Now
    Hi,

    I have access to wild boar.

    I know this is a real personal thing b/c every body's body is different, but are they huge downsides to eating more pork (in the form of wild boar)?

    Too many PUFAs?

    I have Hashimoto's, so I try to be very careful.

    Thanks!

    i would assume since its wild it would have less pufa than reg pork. what u can do is trim some of fat if ur concerned about it. ive had wild boar before its quite tasty but only as a burger.

    Just curious how you have access to wild boar?

    I've had it in a restaurant and loved it.

    Thanks Chocobo.

    I will have to google this topic a bit more.
    The thing is the wild boar is almost free, so hard to beat that!

    Hey, congrats on getting fit. Awesome pics!

    If harvesting feral hogs, try to stick to the smaller ones for eating. The big boys can be a bit rough from what I understand.

    They live in the woods on our farm. Destructive little buggers...they rototill the land looking for grubs.

    Yes, I hear you want the smaller ones.

    Fortunately that problem hasn't made it to my area yet. My friends elsewhere that do have the problem pretty much insist that the young ones are about the only ones worth eating and they are best smoked.. or cooked very slowly to make them tender. Please post up and let me know what you think... I'd be interested in someone with a primal/paleo palate's take on feral hog meat.

    tcb,
    my neighbor gave me some sausage from some he caught and it was quite good. they said the bacon is not very good, but i think they didn't cure it (i'd salt curt it).
    def. will keep you posted! might take me a while to get up the nerve to do this (i'll have to gut it

    Just respect the fact that they can kill you and you'll be good. I know guys that hunt them with dogs and spears, but I'd probably stick to a rifle if I were taking one. If you have a butcher in town, the probably would process the meat for you for a nominal fee if you are not wanting to get into all that. But, it is a skill that could come in handy at some point in time..
