Porcine Ethics

Every once in awhile it’s good to take a step back from BBQ worship to acknowledge that modern day hog farming is too often brutal.  For example, this recent investigation by the Humane Society.  Kudos to The Pit in Raleigh, The Pig in Chapel Hill, and any other barbecue restaurants that focus on local, ethical sourcing of their pork.  I wish more would follow suit and put some pressure on hog producers.  Off my soapbox, and back to the greasy pits.
