How to Butcher an Entire Pig: Every Cut of Pork Explained | Handcrafted | Bon Appetit

Butcher and author Bryan Mayer shows Bon Appetit how to butcher an entire pig at Wyebrook Farm and explains every cut of pork. There are five sections of the pig that yield edible cuts: pork shoulder, pork belly, pork loin, pork butt (or ham), and the head. From those sections, the butcher can offer sausage, bacon, spare ribs, brisket, ribs, steaks, pork chops, pork cutlets, coppa, presa, secreto, and tenderloin.

    How does one acquire half a pig in the first place, all the websites I’ve seen where you can buy a whole/half pig say that it will be processed for you and you will then pick up the vacuum sealed cuts. How does one just get half a pig to butcher for themselves

    Grew pigs on my farm with my dad as a kid. I remember watching them shoot them, hang them and let them bleed out on the farm. Before taking them, butchering them and then giving it back in packages. Never saw this part of it. Pretty cool.
