Thread: How does Javelina meat taste???

    How does Javelina meat taste???

    To all you Javelina hunters out there, would you give me some insight to how the meat tastes? Any way to prepare the meat to make it taste better? Thanks

    Apparently there is a gland on top of the back, above the hindquarters that should be removed right after you kill them.

    I did not know this, and my DOG wouldn't eat the one I killed.

    It tastes a bit like rat...they're cousins, you know. If it's fixed right, and if you can get over the thought of eating rat, it's not too bad.

    OZONICS- proof that with leased land, and enough technology, even Tom Nelson and Jay Gregory can actually kill something.

    I've had it great, and I've had it awful. Depends a lot on field care and the state of the animal when shot. Crock pots, chili, pit bbq, chorizo sausage, etc. I don't think I'd try to eat a steak though.

    remember they really are not a pig, I have found they taste better when made with chili, sausage or things like that, I don't really care for plain javelina taste.

    My favorite way is to use all of the meat to make Green Chile. You usually have enough meat to make 2 or 3 gallons of the green chile. I love it, great in burritos, in a bowl, on tostadas. Freeze whatever you don't eat right away in half gallon containers. After several weeks in the freezer it will be even better, I promise.

    funny myself and 323 were talking about this like an hour ago.

    supposedly the way people do it here is to debone the pig and soak the meeat in a beer for 24 hours, dump the beer then do it again. supossedly this makes it edible.

    Back quite a few years ago when I was in the Army I along with some other guys hunted in Texas, and had a blast bowhunting these rascals. The guy that owned the ranch put on shoulder length rubber gloves, and told us that under no circumstances should we touch the animals guts, or meat with our bare hands. I gladly at that point turned over mine, and NEVER did, or NEVER will eat them. There were other guys with me that told me that even fixed to what some called right--they still didn't taste good. NEVER again- it was fun at the time though. Anything that requires gloves like that guy had on along with the way he acted left me really wondering about bacteria etc.. I must admitt to this day I will never forget their mouths. Those teeth were like razor blades. I wouldn't have wanted to back one of those little rips into a corner.

    Killed one years ago, brought it home and took it out back to gut and skin. Stinkingest thing i've ever smelled. Dogs wouldn't even drag it off.

    Also DO NOT I mean Do NOT cut the glands out if you do one might as well throw it away. Skin it until one can pull the hide which isn't very far off the hind qtrs. And god these things do stink

    Deep Pit BBQ

    I had it in a Southwest deep pit BBQ, seasoned and cooked in foil all night and so tender that you could cut it with a fork. And I have to tell ya honestly......It SUCKS!!!!! I wouldn't feed it to the barn cats!!! Best just to say a prayer thanking the Almighty for a good hunt and leave it buried in the pit.

    The javelina is a peccary. It is related to elephants, not pigs.

    There's an odd bit of trivia for you.
