So what is it with scrapeing the hair off? Is the hair shaved off right at the skin or is it kind of pulled out from the volicles? If it is just shaved off right at the skin then wouldn't it be faster to burn it off? When I was a kid my Aunts and Uncles always scraped it off but I guess I really didn't pay any attention of just what the skin looked like after they were done with it. The last pig I raised myself and processed myself I skinned it. But this next pig that I'm raising I'm wanting to have a pig roast with it, so I want to leave the skin on and want it to look apetizing when it's done cooking. So which way would be the best way to do it? Scrape or burn?
