This is a butchering class I took recently at the Dirty Apron. This is what started me off seriously on my new fanatical interest in butchering.
Sebastian cutting the ribs in half!
Cutting the back end off!

A nicely tied up pork roast.
Look at those beautiful sausages. That would be the handiwork of yours truly. Not too shabby though I didn't win the taste contest.
