About four years ago I grilled a wild boar loin from a pig shot by a friend in central California. I recently purchased a wild boar loin with the intention of brining it and cooking it a little more medium rare for a comparison (the last one I cooked to medium).
In addition to the salt brine I added some mandarin orange juice and let it brine and marinade about an hour. Note that after the brining the loin has turned a brown color.

Although this loin is cooked medium rare I did not like it as well as the first loin I cooked. The first loin was larger and I think just a better quality of meat. This smaller loin was okay whereas the previous loin was excellent.
