CRISPY SKIN WHOLE PIG

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi Guys 

I have quick question I am doing my second whole Pig this year, Last we did one on a custom rotisserie smoker we built. This year we are doing a similar size animal 65-70lbs and i am wondering how we can get the skin crispier. I really would rather not increase the temperature to much but it wouldn't be a major issue. My thoughts just blast it with a High temperature propane burner. i was also thinking of rubbing the skin with veggie oil but seeing as the animal has alot of fat, i dont want it to be swimming in it. 

 

Thanks for the suggestions and any help in advance.

If you want crispy skin, here's how we do ours, crack it with a hammer.

We got really lucky, 95lb pig with perfect amount of fat. The skin got super crispy and delicious, we got the rotisserie turning perfectly so it self bastes as it spins.

Hey AL

thanks my buddy and I built without ever knowing how to smoke a pig. The pork on this one came out perfect, now its time to start perfecting a good rub for it and we are on our way.
