For domestic, most local butchers can order any size pig you want.

There used to be an Asian Market in Arlington, that was were we got them when we were too lazy to butcher our own. It has been 20 years, but I think it was near 360 between 20 and 30.

I bought one recently at HEB. I believe they can order anything you want. I’ve even had them order me beef navel in the past to make beef bacon.

i had been very interested in trying to cook a whole wild hog over a rotisserie but it seems the scalding to get rid of the hair would be kind of problematic? anyone have thoughts on this?

If you buy one from a butcher shop; you don’t have to worry about the hair.

Gainesville live stock auction, once a month on Tuesday evening they run hogs, goats and sheep thorough the ring. Best place for a live cheap hog.

If you buy one they come ready to cook. If you are referring to cooking a wild one or getting one alive than you have to scald and scrape. You can see my post where I did it here. We use a 55 gallon drum on cinder blocks with a fire built underneath. Dip the pig in 150°F water for 6 minutes then scrape. It's quite a bit of work.

Its a lot easier to just burn off the hair using a pearburner….wave the flame across the hair then wipe with an old leather glove, repeat until all the hair is gone. Just be careful not to blister the skin.

I cook wild pig whole all the time...

I haven’t tried burning it off. How do you get the hair follicles out of the skin with the burning method?

There is an old saying used when something comes out just right, "a good scald."

I looked it up for you.

You don’t....but I don’t eat the skin. I smoke them whole skin on...

We just skin them. Domestic- feral it don't matter. Skin them. You might loose a little fat skinning them but it sure beats scrapping them.
