I wanted to do a book on hogs because it just seemed to be the elephant in the room."
It's no secret that feral hogs are changing the landscape of the US, especially in states like Texas, where huge populations of pigs damage crops, urban environments, and native ecosystems. First Lite Team Member Jesse Griffiths sees an opportunity to combat the over-grown hog population while making killer food. By teaching the complete process of how to kill and turn them into a freezer full of recipes, he hopes to bring more eyes to the issue with a tangible and edible solution. With his refined skillset of cooking and butchering, Jesse takes us through what that process means to him and what it can be for others in his new book titled The Hog Book.

And I like to hunt hogs. I hunt for things I love to eat, and I think that if you eat a hog, you can save the world."
