Same as any other pork. roast is great, slice backstraps into center cut pork chops, front shoulders in the crock-pot cook till the meat falls off the bone, in a sauce pan 2 cups BBQ sauce, 1/2 cup 7 up bring to a boil, remove and mix with pulled pork for all day sandwiches. Slice hind quarter into steak size portions(butterfly steaks) as the pieces get smaller.

It does have a tendency to be a little dryer than regular pork, as it has little to zero marbleized fat in the meat.

Which ever way you decide just make sure it's cooked thoroughly.


Enjoy and congrats on your hog kill.

My absolute favorite is smoked. Slow cooked for about 12-14 hours with some hickory wood. Nice little dry rub on the meat. Put just a little water in the pan to keep it moist. Cover with some foil. Keep the temp under 250 degrees. Most delicious!!

Hutch. Enjoy

I'm partial to doing a beer or stout marinade then cooking it on the grill. This works well with your tougher wild hogs as it tenderizes the meat and reduces the gameness.
One bottle beer or stout, a couple TBLS. worchestershire sauce, one onion sliced up and a 3-6 pound hog roast is my recipe. Marinate at least 4 hours in the fridge. Heat your grill up screamin' hot. Take your roast out of the marinade but DON"T throw away the marinade. Sear the roast on the grill, only turn it once. Don't play with it. Then put the roast and marinade in a covered roaster together. I like adding a pound of baby portabello mushrooms at this time.YUMMY! Turn the grill down to low and slow cook, covered for 2-4 hours. It will melt in your mouth.
I've use this recipe for deer, elk and bear too. It's good for all venison.

Dang! Now I'm hungry.
