I saw this photo on someone else's blog. It is from the Mangalica Fesztival in Budapest, Hungary.
Looking at the photo, I see they've got cured shoulders - of the sort that Wooly Pigs sells green. They've removed the shoulder blade like us. The reason we do that is that after the thing is cured and dried, more meat sticks on the blade than when it is pulled off before.
The bellies still have ribs in them, and the belies don't look trimmed. That's unlike the bellies Wooly Pigs sells.
I'd guess that the torpedo-like things hanging in the mesh are cured necks. Unlike the ones we sell, they've got the fatback and skin on them.
