Processing your way:
We process our hogs to your custom specifications, but following is a list of some of the common cuts & packaging instructions.
Pork-chops or tenderloin options
These options are mutually exclusive since they come from the same part of the hog, so you have to choose one or the other, unless you are getting a whole hog, then you can opt for half pork-chops and half tenderloin. Normal thickness for pork chops or tenderloin is 1/2 inch, but if you prefer a different thickness, let us know and we will do our best to do it your way.
We can sugar-cure the hams but keep in mind that we do not cure the ham while it is whole. We have to slice the ham in order cure it. The default thickness for our sliced ham is 3/8 inch, if you prefer a different thickness just let us know. That being said, if you want your ham whole we can keep it whole for you, but it will be a “green ham” in other words, it won’t be cured. You can also also have your ham “plain sliced”, put into ham roasts, sausage, or pork burger.
Pork shoulder options
Many people get these sliced as pork steaks/ sliced shoulder. These are hard to beat on the grill or skillet, and in my humble opinion, they will rival pork chops… if you cook them right. Another really good option for the shoulders is putting them into roasts. The shoulder roasts tend to be a bit more juicy and tender than ham roasts normally are. Sometimes people who are into smoking meats choose to have have their pork shoulders put into Boston Butts and Picnic Butts. Of course if you are looking to get more sausage or pork burger, you can throw your shoulder into sausage or burger.
By far the most popular choice is to have us slice & sugar cure the sides of bacon. For those wanting to avoid nitrates, we do offer a “natural cure” (same price). We used-to use celery juice powder as a curing ingredient, but now we just leave out the nitrates and your bacon still has a fine flavor. If you prefer to leave your bacon fresh, we can simply slice it for you without curing it at all, or we can leave the “middlins” whole, and you can take your side of bacon home as fresh pork belly if you prefer.
Hog jowl options
Jowl has the same curing options as the standard bacon, namely: Sliced & cured, fresh sliced, left whole, or add it to your breakfast sausage.
your most common options are, putting them into your sausage, or keeping them back to cook with a pot of beans. If you do want us to save the hocks for you, you can get them “plain” (uncured) or you can get them sugar cured.
Spare rib options
To some people this is the best part of the hog, and others are ready to have us put it into the sausage. The only issue is that since it is comprised of numerous bones, you really are better off taking them as spare ribs — at least that is my take on it Most times we cut the spare ribs down to a convenient size of approximately 4″ by 6″ pieces. If you prefer half rack or whole rack we can do that for you instead.
Breakfast sausage options
You can get your sausage, hot, medium, or mild. You can also control if you want extra sage, normal sage, or no sage. That gives you the control to have your pork sausage tasting just the way you like. We even go further, if you have a favorite sausage seasoning, simply bring it here when you order your hog and we will be glad to use YOUR FAVORITE seasonings on your sausage. Your pig done your way!
If you want pork burger from your whole hog, just let us know. Be aware that you may have to sacrifice a ham or shoulder in order to get enough ground meat to do both sausage AND pork burger. Be aware that you CANNOT do sausage AND pork burger if you are only doing half a hog.
Organ meat & extra fat
If you want, we can keep the pork liver for you, whole or sliced. You can also tell us if you want us to keep the heart or the extra fat that may be in excess for what is needed for the breakfast sausage.
Finally, you also have opportunity if you have any special request of something you want done with your hog, you can mention it and we will see if it would be feasible or not
