PIG's HEAD!
 
Much to the dismay of the wife, I came home with a pig's head from the local butcher tonight. Looking for any ideas on smoking this bad boy!!!

Thanks and Happy New Year!!!!!

Not sure but I would just throw it on the smoker. Cook at 220 till you reach the right temp for the head. Spice it anyway you want it. I bet it will turn out great!!!

Time to make tamales!

Tongue and cheeks baby.

If you got the knife skills debone the whole thing, crack the skull, and roll it up. Good eats.

I have 1 question.

Why would anybody buy a Pig's Head without having a clue what to with it ?
just curious.

I would
Make head cheese after boiling all the meat off.
Remove the jowls, cure and smoke them.
Remove the brains,saute them with onions and add eggs, scramble em up.

This site has great sausage and lunch meat recipes in pdf format. I have them printed, but it is easier to provide you with a link than scan or retype recipes.

Headcheese

Pennsylvania Head Loaf


Another good source for recipes is Stanley and Adam Marianski's "Home production of Quality Meats and Sausages" It actually incorporates both of his other books "Meat Smoking and Smokehouse Design" and "Polish Sausage Recipes" into this one book... and it actually also covers curing meats (Hams, Corned Beef, Luncheon Loaf).
