I posted a thread a while back about wild boar meat. I thought I was going to get a Boston butt type cut. I was wrong. I ended up getting small baseball size pieces of boar meat. No idea what cut or where the cut is from. I got it in a cooler of ice water and vinegar now for this weekend. I'm thinking of reverse sear, put it in the pit at semi high temp then wear it. It does look pretty lean. I'm more worried of the reverse sear it tasting gamey. Any ideas?

Whenever we get a lean wild hog, we make carnitas. That looks pretty lean.

Well, it's probably the Italian coming out in me, but I'd have to make Cingiale.

Carnitas is a good Idea or Chile verde. How about Lasagna with Wild Boar Bolongese

Since it's already in vinegar you could make vina dosh.

Adobo is good too...

Just make sure you have dark shoes and a brown belt and you will be fine.

A guisado would be ideal.

I was searching the Internet about wild boar meat. I found along with soaking it in ice water in a cooler is also to add baking soda.

Anyways I'm thinking of treating it like a steak with it being so lean. Your suggestions sounded good but to much work. A few of those suggestions never even heard of.

I would just rub it with salt/pepper...reverse sear it like steak.

That's what I'm thinking. What temp should I take it to. I was reading to prevent disease to cook to a internal of 160. Does this sound ok?

I personally wouldn't go to 160­. I'd go 140 and let it carry over to 145.

I'd personally go even lower...about 130F-135F.

We soak the meat in milk to remove all the blood. Gets rid of any gamey taste.

That's also what I was thinking. I'm going to cook a small part on Friday and see how it turns out.

Just this weekend I cubed up a couple packages and made an excellent stew.

If it's anything like the gaminess of venison, I have used buttermilk before, too.
