Where can I buy lard and/or beef tallow (to eat) in Philly? Italian Market, right? Is there a butcher you really like and trust that you can recommend? If I want to get some today, by what time do I have to get over there?

Mrs. Hylas and I are headed to Kauai on 12/19 for our honeymoon. We'll stay 8 days on the north side of the island in a rental found through VRBO. After reviewing previous recommendations, we'll certainly go to Hamura Saimin
. Neither of us have had a proper vacation in years, so we want to have only a few plans and leave the rest of our time open for spontaneous adventure. The only thing I really, really want to do while I'm there is make sure that we find a good source for Kalua pig (luau optional). Where should we go?
We plan to rent a car in Princeville, but a few people have now told me I should get a Jeep. Do we need
Finally, Mrs. Hylas is convinced we're going to want to cook all of our meals in our rental and avoid eating out as much as possible. She would like to bring a cooler full of frozen stuff to save money. I'm not so sure. What say you?

Say hypothetically, that you had half of a pigs worth of unrendered and raw pork fat trimmings in your freezer, apparently about 20 lbs, that your butcher handed you when they returned the rest of your, now disassembled, half pig. What would you do with it? [more inside]

My friends just called to offer me any of the non-conventional parts of the two pigs they are slaughtering tonight. What should I take? [more inside]

Can anyone identify this bird
with its chick and does anyone know the breed of this
Both were photographed in the UK, but the bird was at a reserve that has birds from all over the world. I believe the guinea pig is a recognised UK breed.

Does anyone know of a petting zoo / farm which keeps 'micro pigs' in or near London?

My father will likely have to have an aortic valve replacement. He's 63. His choices are a pig valve (with an expected replacement time of 15 years) or a mechanical valve (and a lifetime of coumadin). Any personal experiences? What do you recommend? You are not a doctor. [more inside]

I recently bought a share of a pig from a farmer, and it came wrapped in various cuts. One of the cuts is a large, meaty, bony one called "chine end roast." How should I cook this? [more inside]

This should be pretty easy...
Does anyone remember which book of Richard Scarry's had an illustration of what I think was a pig holding a big sausage on a fork? We are going through old childhood books and the vision of that image is driving me nuts and I need to see it again.

Now that the swine flu has become an issue, is there a way to see if the "pig odor" part of the stimulus bill and such a joke on the media for a few days might have contained money to study things like containing swine flu outbreaks? [more inside]

There is an advertisement with a really ugly, mean looking, bully-like boar/pig. What company is it for? I recall him having really dark, thick eyebrows. [more inside]

I look out the window while working. Lately, I've seen some strange behavior: people park, get out and circle the cement pig nearby, and they get back in their car.
What are they doing? [more inside]

While abroad last fall, I had really awesome sandwhiches. It seemed like every pub we ate in had a brie-and-bacon-on-some-sort-of-bread available. Now that I'm back in the states, I want to know where to find English bacon, or how to substitute for it. [more inside]
