So the other day the Veterinarian I work with brought in some slow cooked (pulled) Javelina. For those of you who aren't familiar with the southwest critters, javelina are desert dwelling peccaries (members of the pig family).
I was surprised at the relatively mild flavor, quite impressive. Apparently dressing in the field is what allows this. Normally Javelina meat can have a very distinct unpleasant flavor, almost skunky (Javelinas are smelly beasts). Dressing immediately after taking one down seams to reduce/eliminate the unpleasantness...
