Sweet, succulent and juicy, our rack of wild boar is a unique change from other rack meat, and offers lean texture with intense flavor.
It doesn't get more free range than this. Our wild boars are actually wild, and are humanely cage trapped in Texas then brought to USDA-inspected processing plants. The wild boars eat greens, native roots, acorns, and pretty much any agricultural crop they can access. As a result, farmers and ranchers in Texas are fully supportive of the law that encourages hunters and trappers to cut down on the population of these nuisance hogs. This works to your advantage, because even in a state as large as Texas, they can’t eat all the wild boar!
Robust enough to stand up to a strong red wine, as well as sauces and rubs, wild boar meat offers a distinctive taste—lean, and pork-like, but more intense, with darker color and tighter grain. Their wild-foraged diet contributes to the unique flavor. Grill at lower temperatures with traditional BBQ accompaniments and serve with a strong ale or full-bodied red wine. Try a maple/chipotle glaze for a southwestern kick!
"The maple syrup in the marinade helps the boar caramelize as it smokes over hot coals and applewood."
"Chef Parind Vora from Austin's Restaurant Jezebel is a master of balancing flavors and texture. His dark chocolate crusted wild boar is full-flavored and rich with a pleasing, crisp crust, balanced by an herbal chimichurri vinaigrette."
