Nice videos. When I first saw the title, thought it might start a little earlier in the process.
Maybe a bit off topic...
I grew up in the country. When I was a teenager, had an uncle who decided that the kids of my generation had never experienced butchering a hog. So for a couple of summers, he fed out a couple of hogs, and in the fall - we had a hog killin...
We took it to the stage - the dressed sides - that the video starts. ( Squeal to Side ). Guess not for the squeamish of heart - but definately a part of Americana. What I remember most vividly are the smells. The wisp of Oak burning underneath the scalding cauldron. The smell of singed hair as your scraping the sides. The smell of the fresh meat after the hog is hoisted and started to be split open.
To borrow an old saying - An experience that I would not give up for a million dollars, but would not pay 5 cents to repeat over again.
Great utube video. Thanks.
