After some thought I decided to debone the head. Watched a couple youtube clips on the procedure and gave it a try. 1st hair removal. Farm did a decent job but there were still a few strays, out comes the torch.

Complete! Not as hard as I thought it would be. Wanted to get the brain out but no cleaver to crack the skull.
Into the stock pot for some bone broth
Next post I'll talk about roasting prep and broth seasoning
