Baby Pig Recipes
« on: February 02, 2016, 06:41:00 PM »
I killed a small pig.

I gutted and skinned it but left it whole. I can cut or quarter it if necessary.  I currently do not have a grill.  The pig is probably 4 or 5 pounds.  Any suggestions for the oven or crock pot?
Relax,

Skinned 100% right?  You can roast the quarters if you like in the oven.  300 degrees for a few hours, or until a probe thermometer reads 195.  
If your oven is large enough, you can roast it whole.  Just splay it out.  when placing the probe thermometer, place in the thickest part of the ham.

Thanks Al.  Its a small pig, I think I will roast it whole.  should I just add a  rub or would you recommend a bunch of veggies?  do I cover it?

I would just rub it.  No veggies, they'll let out too much moisture, unless you want "juice" to serve with it. I would cover it for the first hour to hour and a half, then take it off.

I skinned a 10 pounder, rubbed it good with spices and fried it in my turkey fryer. I can't even begin to tell you how good it was!

Just getting back to this, the meat was tasty but dried out and tough.  I ate what could and used the carcass to make soup.

I am sure I did something wrong along the way.
