    Default How long to hang a hog in the Fridge?

    A friend of mine gave me a small, 80lb hog he shot. Its all cleaned and in the fridge. How long can I keep it in there before I decide whether to cut it up or cook it whole? Thanks.

    We hang ours for five days to allow the meat to cool and break down/tenderize/dry out. Seven days is our limit.

    I wouldn't go past 10 days. I would get that thing cut and wrapped (or cooked whole) between 6-10 days of killan it....Much like 410, I like to hang it for a few before processing it.
