PHOTOS: Butchering a Pig

Posted By on Fri, Jan 10, 2014 at 10:46 AM

Last week, I had the opportunity photograph a pig being butchered at Tim's Special Cut Meats in Couer d'Alene, featured in this week's food section. Owner Tim Branen and Meat Manager Mike Cobetto quickly processed the pig from a whole animal into the various parts we are used to eating, including roasts, chops, pork bellies and ribs. With decades of experience, Branen says that he can process an entire animal in 15-20 minutes.
