Barbecue Pigs Feet
- 4 pigs feet, split in half lengthwise
- 2 medium onions, chopped
- 2 stalks celery, chopped
- 1 garlic clove, chopped
- 1 bay leaf
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup cider vinegar
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- favorite barbecue sauce
Cookware and Utensils:
- 1 Dutch oven or large boiling pot
- 1 slotted spoon

- 1 cutting board
- 1 measuring spoons
As always the key to great cooking is to be prepared and to use quality ingredients.
- Okay, so where do you buy pigs feet? Often times you will have to ask the grocery store butcher for the pigs feet because they're usually
frozen and sometime stored in the back of the store.
- Begin by giving the pigs feet a good washing. For presentation purposes remove any unsightly hair that you observe. Yes pigs grow hair on
the toes and feet just like humans. A disposable razor will remove the hair.
- Place all the ingredients in a large boiling pot and cover with water. Bring water to a boil over medium-high heat and then reduce heat to
a simmer. Cover pot with lid and allow pigs feet to cook for about 2-1/2 hours. While your meat is cooking stir constantly and skim away any
foam that develops.
- Preheat your oven to 325 degrees during the last 5 minutes of cooking your meat.
- Using a slotted spoon remove the pigs feet from the cooking juice. Try to keep the meat intact. Place the meat on a baking pan, in
single layers with skin facing up. Also use the slotted spoon to remove some of the onions and spices from the cooking juice.
- Add the onions and spice to the top of the pigs feet and then apply a thick layer of your favorite barbecue sauce. Finally, place the
pan in the oven and bake for about 40 minutes, until meat is tender.
