Hello any recommendations for reasonably priced skull cleaning in the area. The hog was 80 lbs. I can whiten if it helps. Thanks

I just do it myself. Use a big, old stock pot the head can fit in and boil it.

Yup....just boil it a while, after you skin it. After boiling, just take a water hose and hit it with some pressure and you will blow the cooked meat right off the bone.

Easiest way is to bury it for a couple months. Dig it up and it will be clean with no trace of hair or anything and not smell either{usually}. Then I use whitening powder and cream mixture from Sally Beauty Supply. If you are not in a hurry this is a great way to do it. I also have a pot that goes over a 50 gal. barrel cut out on the bottom for wood with a smoke stack out the side but time has me being lazy these days.

this, or let fire ants do the cleaning, put mesh wire over it to keep critters away.

Find a big fire ant mound and drop the head in the mound to stir them up.
Then I put a wash tub or half barrel over it and put a cinder block on that.
Come back in a few weeks and it will be stripped clean.
