A Ribbing

This video from Heath Putnam's Wooly Pigs blog shows Christoph Wiesner, president of the Austrian Mangalitsa Breeders Association, butchering a rib section of a Mangalitsa pig. Note the use of a rib puller to remove the ribs while leaving the rib meat attached.

Heath just remineded me that Christoph will be leading a class in Mangalitsa slaughter, butchery and curing at Mosefund Farm in January. I'm planning to be be there for a day or two. -BdG

Bob - I hope to meet you at one of those events in January. It looks like it will be great fun.

Love how he uses the sharpener to remove the membrane from the ribs!
