    No matter how it turns out, hog head and trotters automatically earns the SOA. 

    Location- Just "this side" of Biloxi, Ms.

    Status- Standing by.

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.

    Man good for you if you can eat that. I don't like visualizing the meats that I'm eating staring back at me with their teeth exposed. I bet the cheek meat if you handed it to me on a plate would taste amazing if I didn't know where it came from. But I'm not one that can just go tear it off the pigs head myself. I guess I could maybe become desensitized to it if I was around it enough. These are the reasons I couldn't be a butcher. Great job though.

    How do you serve it?  

    Slice the meat off? Self serve, grab and twist with tongs?

    A coworker of mine went to visit family in the Philippines years ago and came back obsessed with cooking pig heads for the cheek meat.  It was quite tasty, just not sure I’d be able get the wife on board to partake in this one with me though.

    Smoked pig head + fresh tortillas = party :)

    there’s  good meat in the jowl and orbits, plus other tasty bits. 

    Those run $5-$7 (cooked) at the Asian supermarkets around here. Almost too cheap to cook yourself!
