Got this from one of my thread starters a while ago for a calfs' head(dont know how to just paste that site, thread etc). So here it is again.
Cousin did this along time ago. Said it's not bad.....
Dig a hole 18 inches deep and wide enough to fit a calf's head, allowing for enough space for a good layer of coals. Build a big fire in hole and burn down to coals.
When head is cut off slaughtered calf, leave enough skin to wrap or fold over neck opening. Wrap head in wet burlap sack. Put heavy wire securely around head--- strong enough to lift cooked head from hole.
Shovel some coals out of hole, leaving a good layer on the bottom. Place head in hole. Shovel live coals all around head and on top, then a layer of ashes on the top, followed by a good layer of dirt so that it is completely sealed off and no air can get in.
Cook 12 hrs. Remove from hole by wire. Remove sack and skin and it's ready to enjoy. All parts are there, cooked to perfection!
(Still wont try it)
Today....May try it now the more I think about it......
