The quick skinny goes...

It's late. I'm tired. The pig was AWESOME!!!!!!! I don't think I could have cooked it to any better of doneness. I will write a report in greater detail tomorrow after I've had 6 or 7 hours of solid sleep. I've been at it since 5:00a.m. today. I cooked the pig for about 8 hours on a oretty low heat of around 140 give or take.

Bravo, Chris! The only way I know to cook a whole pig is to put it flat on the grill (no rotissierie) - drink a keg of beer - flip pig - drink another keg - pig is done.

Would love to see your pics of a more civilized way to do it.

Don't Panic

The way I cook my whole hogs is first,heat up the grill then put the pig on skin side down,close the lid and lock if possible! Once temp reaches 225-230 {I have a gas cooker} just let it go for about 5.5-6 hours then open lid take knife and drain juices from cavity and make a couple of cuts into hams,at this point I add some beer, totaly opt. you can add any kind of sauce you want. Check temp of hams should be 170 if not crank up heat to 250 for another hour! you should be fine, at least that is how I cook mine... I never flip mine because someone is going to get burned, your going to loose meat,you will loose heat in your grill and end up mad. Remember the main most things is dont panic and dont look until the end. Please let me know how it turns out, Happy Grilling
