We had 2 pigs that we fed a lot of table scraps and they had way too much fat on them. Pig fat may be great for you but I don't like a lot of it in pork chops or ribs or ham. Some is good and helps give the meat a nice flavor. Too much is gross. I like bacon that has some fat in it over real lean bacon. Our 2 pigs had too much fat and I was very disappointed in them and considered our efforts raising them to be a failure. The meat locker smoked the hams and bacon for too long and we ended up feeding them to the dogs. It taught us a lesson about buying some pork from the locker before having them process your meat to see how they flavor it. We bough a couple sides of beef from the same place and had them hang for 13 days. They were delicious.Wifezilla said:Since pork fat is GREAT I have no idea how a lot of fat on a pig would be a bad thing.
