Well, it all sound idyllic, except for the fishy flavor. Of course, I would have thought you and your friends would apply heavy wood smoke anyway. Certainly the Hawaiians are famous for  that technique; I don't know whether the Maori and more recent New Zealanders do it too.

The only thing better than a Giant Feral Hog story is a Drunken Giant Feral Hog story :)

Strewth!

Re smoke BBQ, I had to learn how to do it when I got to Texas. Fire & emissions regs where we lived out in the woods near Auckland NZ wouldn't let us burn charcoal, it was propane gas barbies only. Now I wouldn't dream of cooking outside any other way. Those pigs up in Northland though ate so much fish byproduct it would have been hard to kill the taste no matter what you did. Similar to feeding chickens garlic or onions, you taste it in the eggs, or so I understand.

Yep there's a 'no fish or garlic for the chickens' rule here too. I'm too stingy to buy charcoal though and cook on ash embers  :P

Thanks a ton (or quarter ton) ERD, glad he is butchering for the freezer - makes me even more curious as to how a pork chop would taste

Am I alone here in wanting these amazing wild animals to be alive rather than hunted to extinction by redneck cowboys with guns?

What?  ...you don't like bacon?

Seriously PS, feral hogs are a problem - they are in no danger of being hunted to extinction by rednecks...as people will keep feeding wildlife and they are indirect beneficiaries. Don't know what the rules are in North Carolina (where the story originates), but I'm sure it is similar to Texas.

This will give you an idea what kind of problems wild hogs can present.  It is a facebook flash player video, so hope you can see it.
