at 250 deg you are lookin at 10-12 hours for 100 pound pig. I cook mine meat side down until the skin starts separating from the meat and the shoulder bones start to wiggle easily. I then turn the pig to skin side down and then baste with sauce (if you are using sauce). Once at this point you can maintain heat at about 200 to keep warm and hold until ready to cut/pull and serve. We usually serve right off the grill, pig-pickin style.If you are still getting a lot of fat (depeding on the pig), you can poke a few holes in the skin to drain it off.


Good luck and good eating.36.gif
