smoking a suckling pig ( 17 lbs)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

i read the thread about smoking the 70 lbs hog

 this ones much smaller

 

 i have an offset smoker

is it best to spread this little piggy out , or leave it more in its natural shape?

 any good pointers?

 

 type of wood?

 rub?

 time it should take ( roughly)?

 should i foil certain parts , as i read in the other thread , so they don`t over-cook them ?

 put a water pan in there ?right away or later on?

 

 

 

 

 i`ve cooked a few pigs in those cuban ( chino) boxes. i usually soaked the whole thing in mojo all night long.

my son says thats over kill for this little one( he is a chef , but this is new to him too)

 also thats a total different thing

 

 i want this to come out good

 my son bought it for me for chirtsmas just so i can smoke it on my birthday

 it`s my birthday on new years eve ,

There has been MUCH more recent threads on little Piggies....http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/141126/first-pig-roast-advice-please#post_982966   and   http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/141132/roast-suckling-pig#post_982709   Check the dates, if a thread is more than a couple months old you may not get an answer. Also look a the Number of Posts a guy has. The more posts the better chance that member is still around. If you have any other questions, you will get a better response starting a new thread. Good luck...JJ
