Must be my smoker but I've never had one take less than two hours per pound. Absolutely do it to a temperature, not time. Best investment I ever made was a Thermapen.

We drag them to all kinds of events and usually cook pigs on them and the product is served right off the grill with the eaters just pulling meat off the pig hence the name "pig pickin". How each cooks their pig is generally some sort of silly secret (do you flip yours? No I never do...well I do, and if you don;t it don;t cook right, ....Oh I never flip mine.,...well then you don;t know how to cook a pig....yak yak yak....(LOL)) you get the picture....Cookin' a pig in the south is considered some sort of an art form....(LOL again)

thanks for the welcome...I look forward to participating

Bob
LOL Just can't imagine anyone doing that over here!! Maybe in some of the outback communities.

Oz BBQ in the burbs - flashy gadgety thing that dominates the garden patio (not really the outdoors anymore cos it's too hot and too many flies!) where the men stand around with a tinny (or for the more upwardly mobile glass of red) in one hand looking at the BBQ while the seafood, meat and vegetable dishes (that were prepared by the women) cook, meanwhile discussing the footy or the V8's. The women are located in a different part of the outdoor area around all the salads and nibblies (that they prepared). The food isn't discussed by anyone just about and the BBQ itself is only discussed for opening minutes.

Well that's in my experience anyway... ;-)

Should I ask why a shoulder is referred to as a butt, or is it one of those things I may be better off not knowing about?? LOL ;-)

Or pulling the meat right off the pig on the grill?

Well...truth be known, we're just bunch of savages down here in North Carolina...you Virginia yankees have a bit more class than us rednecks.....we still eat with our hands here and use forks and knives to stab each other (LOL) ....actually I believe you folks do it just like we do...serve yourself right off the grill choosing which part of the meat you want....

Also another thing some do (shudder) is pull the meat off and chop it up fine in a pan and add a vinegar based sauce (which I think ruins it, but some believe is the only way to serve it) to it. It's then called Carolina Style Barbeque.....yuk
