Well, it looks I'm doing a little 21 lb suckling pig on Saturday. My son asked me to do a piggie for his 19th birthday. He's legal to drink now, so it looks like some piggie & some good Canadian Whisky.

Well, it didn't work out as I had planned.
It was too cold & windy.
I couldn't do piggie on the rotisserie, so I figured I'll just barbecue it. Well that didn't work either. It was so windy that I couldn't keep temperture up in the BBQ. After an hour or so, I decided to do it in the oven. In the end, it turned out wonderfully juicy & tender. The pig got a bit of smoke before it went into the oven, but not as much as I would have liked. But it doesn't really matter. Once all was said & done, the porkie was delicious, tender, juicy, and the skin was nice and crispy.
I'll probably do another one in January.
omg, just realized this thread started almost 2 years old??? feb/12. i was gonna say the piggy on the spit is not the same one on the baking tray??? either way, nice job AK1. it is definately to cold in the month of feb and the box is a little big to retain heat in those temps, you know that anyways, but im sure in the summer months, that unit of yours is the bomb!!!
I'm really liking this suckling pig. It was much less work than I expected, and it was really tasty. I can see myself doing this on a semi regular basis. Looking at peoples reaction, there's nothing like seeing a whole pig on a platter going to the table.
