Default whole pig in DFW

Looking to cook a whole pig, any ideas on where to find one in the DFW area?

Thanks

I'm in Euless, called Country Meat Market and they were a bit pricey on the hog, good prices on everything else.

Just joined but have been lurking in the shadows for about a year now. You can get whole hogs at Columbia Packing in Dallas. They are just off of MLK Blvd south of the Trinity River. They are frozen, so you need to call and order the size you are looking for in advance. They are also a good place to order your briskets from, but must be ordered by the case. This is usually 6 10 pounders. The briskets are not frozen. We also order our pork shoulders, spare ribs and St. Louis style spare ribs from them. The ribs must be ordered by the case and are frozen. Pork shoulders can be ordered individually and come fresh. The per pound pricing changes weekly according to what the livestock market did the previous week. I usually call my order in about a week in advance and they have it ready when I get there. Checks only no credit cards. Good luck on the whole hog. It's a show, people won't let you keep the doors on the pit down.

Thanks for the lead on Columbia PT, just got off the phone with them, they have 80 of em in stock. Do you have a restaurant or just do a lot of cooking?

No, I just do a fair amount of cooking. Good luck with your hog. You'll need lots of beer to marinade the cook from the inside! If you need any pointers I'll be glad to help.
