A Visual Guide to the Cuts of a Pig



In this video, you will see Seth and Scott, the Bearded Butchers, break down a whole pig that is split into two halves and lay the individual meat cuts out on a diagram explaining where every cut of pork comes from on the carcass. They also discuss the different types of pork cuts, such as chops, roasts, trimmings, bones, and fat. The video begins with Seth and Scott laying the two halves of pork on a table. They then trace the two halves with tape to make an outline of the pork carcass. Once that is complete, Seth shows the viewer how to break down a whole pig step-by-step. One half of the pork carcass is made bone-in, and the other half of the pork carcass is made boneless. As he works, he explains the different cuts of pork and where they come from on the carcass. Once the whole pig has been broken down, they lay the individual meat cuts out on a diagram of the carcass. This allows the viewer to see exactly where each cut comes from and how it is related to the other cuts. The video also shows the total yield of meat from the carcass, which can vary depending on the size of the pig and the quality of the meat. The video provides you with a wealth of knowledge about the cuts of pork and how to buy pork in bulk.


The video is also visually appealing, with clear and concise visuals that help you understand the butchering process. It's also a great resource for butchers and chefs who want to brush up on their skills.
