Anyone have experience with wild boar shoulder?

I am looking at as recommended in this month's Bon Appetit magazine. Is it worth $10 a pound? That's 10 times what I can buy a pork butt for.

    Fajing: No disrespect, but he!! no!!! :blink: Wild Boar is considered a nuisance in many States, Florida is one of them. There is no 'closed' season, and hunting is encouraged year round. For that kind of money, save for a hunting trip to Florida. Our buddies went hunting here, and had 400 pounds plus of Wild Boar bagged in less than half an hour. Just my two cents!

    Worth it? Probably not. But if you're not a hunter and it's the only way to get Boar meat.......

    I've never tried it and am not a hunter so I would probably do it at least once just to try it. Like I have with Bison, Ostrich and Guttersnipe..... :woohoo: :woohoo:

    count me as a "why not" kinda person.

    have you ever had it? is it worth ten bucks for you to know yourself whether it's any good? are you going to let other people tell you that since they don't like it, you won't either?

    heck, even the "it's expensive" math is poor. what would the total cost be for you to go and hunt/kill one yourself? it might be cheaper per pound, but you'd have much more to spend and a lot of meat you don't know if you'd like anyway.

    i dunno. seems simple to me.

    interested? buy it and try it.
