    On the continent they always seem to skin the boar. The hide is so thick, I doubt it makes the best crackling....

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    I always laugh at the Ray Mears show where he is roasting a "young wild boar" on a spit. I think the Gurkha's were helping him out.

    There is this pristine pink farm pig, in it's skin, on the spit. So obviously the product of an abbatoir. It no more looked like a wild boar than a rabbit did.

    Found the best option is to skin it, try to leave as much fat on the very lean meat. Have heard of the hair being torched off but I guess that would be a tad stinky not to mention the mess whilst trying to handle it afterwards. Reckon the old disposables would take a bit of a beating getting through that lot, though you mention steaming, that may soften it up a bit and a going over with a good sharp blade may make some headway. I have a trip planned down south in a fortnight so if I'm lucky enough to get a shot at one then I may test your method. At least on a small part of it!

    Well I've scalded lots and lots of domestic pigs, both white and coloured and spotted (and they all end up pink), but any pigs that've been outdoors are sods to scald. Even worse if lean and coloured, especially if Tamworth or Wild Boar in the breeding. The last ones I did I skinned instead as there was no way the bristles would come off by conventional methods. Therefore, I reckon I'd do the same with a wild Wild Boar.
