    I'm not even sure where to start, LDI mash being trucked to Iowa to feed pigs? Best part of story "You can even request your own pig when they are available in June or July".

    Don't believe I'd want to consume an animal I knew on a first name basis.

    I'm raising three meat chickens right now. Their names are Big Dinner, Medium Dinner, and Little Dinner. If one of them has a growth spurt then their names might switch.

    I must admit to less rigid requirements for fowl.

    I was about 9 years old when my dad gave me a couple piglets. I named them Bacon and Porkchop to remind myself how delicious they would be if I took care of them properly. Years later that I learned that not everyone was taught responsibility in this manner.

    Everyone knows that Van Winkle Pigs are the best. I'm already in line for the release.

    Are these wheated pigs or rye?

    Re: Whiskey Flavored Pigs

    Rumor has it that a similar taste sensation can be had by -

    (1) buying a Virginia Country Ham (or a Smithfield[tm] ham) because they are fed peanuts/peanut shells or so I'm told,
    (2) pouring some bourbon into a glass to drink while you are cooking and/or eating (1)
    (3) nevernever naming the ham although naming the bourbon is optional.

    I also have made a bourbon-honey glaze (better than a beer-honey glaze which I also make on occasion) to use while cooking the ham.

    I'm partial to Edwards products (especially the sausage), but most smoked, nonwatered Smithfields will do.

    Damn it Harry! Here I was gonna post something in relation to the movie Deliverance, and you had to go and mention Virginia Country ham. When I was new here on SB, I was at the KBF for the first time as a member. A fellow member was very gracious to me, and did me a very good turn. Later on, I returned that favor. Low and behold, just before Christmas that same year, I received a Virginia Country ham from that same member. Made for a darned fine Xmas dinner. What can I say now?

    Cheers! Joe
