of the whole pigs i've butchered (after being q'd), none of them were big enough to get that kind of meaty cut.
Whole pigs at pig roasts are usually smaller, younger pigs, aren't they? Like 150 tops? I could be wrong, but they don't look near as big as the 300-400 lb pigs you see being raised for slaughter.
Good question. Where's Ask-the-butcher when you need him?

Nice write-up and pics, Rock. This is on my shortlist.

Thanks everybody. Bucky, the cut can be fatty. The slow roasting renders quite a bit. There is a good layer right under the crackling but it comes off very easily. You do have to do a bit of picking throush but the flavor is worth it. It's one of those things you don't eat often, or you will end up with a pork belly of your own.

This piece was right along the bottom. I actually had to cut off a couple of teats. Which was a bit freaky.....

Awesome meat. No need to delete, unless you want to, Rock. Natural part of a pork belly, though I agree with Kayelle! (shiver)

The things I learn here!

Well, like I said, it freaked me out a bit, too. But, it is a reminder for me as a meat eater. You forget what you you are eating when everything you buy is in nice neat packets.....

i hadn't thought about it before, but i'll bet men have a similar involuntary reaction to the idea of 'rocky mountain oysters'.
