How To: Butcher a pig

Butcher a pig

In this video, we learn how to butcher a pig with Chef Dave. From the top, you will see the pork shoulder, the ribs, then the ham, the loin, the belly, lard, kidney, and then the leg of pork. If you touch the fat on this pig, you will notice that the fat is very firm, not soft. Usually, the head does not come with the pig because it's not in high demand and butcher's don't want to pay for something that the customers don't want. There is also a kidney that will come with the pig, but there will be a cut in the middle of it where it was tested to make sure it's safe. Just follow the body of the pig and you can find exactly where to cut easily!
