    So, who else likes eating pigs? My favorite out of the whole thing is the leg--any part of it.

    Good souvlakia are only done with pork. Pork is the main meat back home, not beef so I have always eaten lots of pork.

    That looks great, btw.

    I am down with the pig.

    I am partial to the butt, in the form of sausage, stew, or barbeque. But I'll take the loin, rib, shank.... it's all good with me.

    I think the best pork I ever ate was the braised pork shank at Teatro in Boston.

    Homer: Are you saying you're never going to eat any animal again? What about bacon?
    Lisa: No.
    Homer: Ham?
    Lisa: No.
    Homer: Pork chops?
    Lisa: Dad, those all come from the same animal.
    Homer: Heh heh heh. Ooh, yeah, right, Lisa. A wonderful, magical animal.

    A wonderful animal indeed [​IMG]

    Pig is king of cuisine IMO.

    Roast pig Chinese or Phillippino style is very good, I love it with a Phillippino sauce called "sour sour sauce". Momma Sita or Mang Thomas brands.

    I love BBQ pulled pork, southern style, and also BBQ pork Chinese style (on rice with a sweet shoyu sauce)

    Hawaiian style khalua pork (which you can do in your oven).

    Various hispanic ways.

    Breaded pork chops in a reduction sauce.

    Sausages...from "farmer" style to lunganisa to lop chung to spicy Italian (forgive my egregious misspellings).

    Of course smoked ribs.

    It is a divine animal.

    One of the most memorable parties I've been to was a pig roast back about 25 years ago on Nantucket, when I still ate such things. It was in a charming old cottage with an open-rafter ceiling, and in the middle of the dining room table was an entire pig, apple in mouth and all. You just peeled the meat right off it.

    That was probably the last time I ate pork, but it was also by far the tastiest.

    Why did you stop eating pork?

    If I see a pulled pork sandwhich on a menu I have to order it.
    I also really like the Daisy May's BBQ cart on 52nd/6th.

    Why did you stop eating pork?

    Because I stopped eating all meat. Doing so virtually eliminated the severe migraines I'd had since childhood.

    Bacon. Num num.

    Then, of course, there is the glory that is Charcroute. I make mine with pork, ham, a fresh sausage, smoked keilbasa, and of course sauerkraut and juniper berries. A celebration of the pig (and also lovely with a nice Alsatian Gewurtz).

    I am next most thankful for the salumi, Prosciutto, and hams. Following that, slow-cooked meat in any presentation. I am not as fond of pork cooked quickly. My grandfather made, and loved, something called studininow -- pork trotter soup. I can't quite get there.

    Anywone else find that pork fat sometimes smells...vaguely awful though?

    Pulled pork sandwiches are just so, so, so good. Throw on a slice of cheddar cheese and prepare for some heavenly grub... [​IMG]
