Attention, all Pigslayers! Don’t throw away those wild pork shanks. I know, they don’t seem to have enough meat on them to count for much. But don’t be swayed. While on our Thanksgiving hunting trip, Deerslayer smoked our turkey and a whole pan of pork shanks that I’d saved from a previous hunt.They turned out beautifully. Smoky,delicious goodness! I packaged up the smoked shanks, about four per bag, and froze them. When I decided to cook up a big pot of beans, I threw two shanks into the works and simmered everything until the delicious, smoked meat fell from the bone. A masterpiece!
What excites me the most about this shanky revelation is that it provides an additional use for meat that has been, in the past, relegated to the trashcan. So cook good meat, ALL the meat and feed it to your family!

I feel like one can never go wrong with smoked meat. Especially, especially smoked pig. I wish we had some wild hog! But I’m glad they haven’t made it here yet.
Yeah, smoked pork is awesome. The wild pigs really tear things up around here, though. When life gives you lemons……. Make smoked pork?
When life gives you destructive wild hogs, eat bacon (and pork chops, and ham, and and and).
I wish I’d read this before our last trip!! We got 6 hogs. Well, there’s always next weekend 🙂 Thanks!!!
