6 lb garlic
2 lb whole black pepper corn
3 lb kosher salt
1 lb dried onion flakes
3 whole fenel bulbs quartered
4 bunches fresh rosemary

membrain removed from rib section and all above stuffed into cavity and sewn shut with butcher twine

In my book, that's smoked pig. Sure, you could have sped things up and/or infussed more smoke into the product by inclosing or covering it, but IMHO you cooked a pig over smoke and that's smoking.

Looks great.

Great looking piggy - nice setup too. Really wish there was a section for pig roasting here, like to try it this fall after harvest time. Boy this bbqing is addicting!

Pig Roasting Section


Check out the section called "Catering and Large Group Gatherings". You will find a lot of info about cooking a whole hog. Especially look at posts by Cowgirl. She's a pro at it! I did one, thanks to her, and it turned out great!

Hey Beer_man,

Nice looking pig! I'm sure the neighborhood appreciates it more than hamburgers and hotdogs too!
