It's pork,you do know how to cook a pork shoulder no difference. Make sure that you cook it fully to kill any parasites as with any wild game.
Never met a cow I didn't like with a little salt and pepper.

Ditto...
Rub it down in your favorite seasoning. You could inject it too. I like apple juice and Jack, but I tend to drink it not inject the pig with it. ;) Cook it until the bone pulls out. Slow and low.

yea, I was just wondering if anyone did something to remove the "gamey" taste from a wild pig.

I soak and inject them with pineapple juice the day before and then use whatever rub i got. The pineapple helps take a lot of the gamey taste away that the wild piggy has

I cooked one last week. I used buttermilk as marinade for 24 hrs. Then injected with butter and spice.

THIS + 1,000,000

This is exactly what we do, just leave drain open and keep adding ice as needed.
Then we rub them with sesaoning.....Hog Waller is excellent and I will probably try Hoochie Mama next

Good Luck and let us know how it turns out
