This is my first whole pig. My son named her Piglet and she weighed 65 pounds. I salted and oiled the skin, and used my pork rub on the inside. It turned out to be a 12 hour smoke using Oak and Maple with a little Cherry thrown in for enhancement. I have yo say it was a great first try. I also made 6 racks of ribs, 2 Boston Butts and 14 pounds of jerked chicken to help back up the pig.
