My first attempt at cooking a hog was a near disaster. The hog was too big for my cooker and about half of the poor creature never got above 120*. Here is the first successful hog we've done. As you can see we pay no attention to presentation. Pic quality is embarrassing - but the sucker was good
The pig was 62 lbs and was done in 6 hours. Butts were 200 and hams 190. The only thing left to do is make a removable grate so that we can turn the hog towards the end of the cook.
