I got down on one knee, and asked my friend Wesley..... will you get a pig with me?
he said yes!!!
He actually got really fuckin' excited about it, vastly more excited then i thought he would. We started immediately making lists of the things that we wanted to make (see previous post). We still need to figure out where we want to get this beast from, but we have it narrowed down to a couple of different places.
We are pretty picky when it comes to spending money because we are so broke ass, so we are looking for the most pig for the buck.
The primary use for this blog if for us to articulate what we actually want to do with porky once he arrives, we don't want to waste anything so planning is kind of important especially since this stuff is for home use, which is why we will be curing a whole shitpile of it.
This is the first time I'm weighing in, but i will be posting more as time goes by and scheduling allows
PS. i found 2 pounds of belly in my freezer last night, gonna do something with it, probably will post it up if i have the time and energy but don't hold your breath (im looking at you, Wes)
PPS. We are professional cooks, not writers, our grammar sucks... deal with it.
