Whole Hog

A really great film from Southern Foodways Alliance.

I must admit I was confused at first with the claim that Lexington is a whole-hog hotbed, until I realized that they were referring to Lexington, Tennessee. Lexington, North Carolina is, of course, known for cooking pork shoulders only; it's in the eastern coastal plain of North Carolina where the pitmasters cook whole hogs as opposed to shoulders.

"It's really a strange industry with strange people." I LOL'd at that line.
