Suckling Pig UDS

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 

Well, I got a 21 pounder Friday.  Cleaned her up and marinated in a mojo.  Lots of garlic, oregano orange juice, lime and lemon.  S & P also.  She sat in that for 6 hours.   I started a 8 lb shoulder @ 6 that evening.  At 3 am I foiled it and placed in oven to finish.  I put the pig on the UDS after topping off the basket with cowboy lumb and hickory.  I was going to chop off the head to fit her in the drum, but.  I was able to tuck the rear legs in the chest cavity.  She fit in the drum and smoked at 225ish for 10 hrs.  I took her off and all parts were registering 180.  Rested on the counter for a couple of hrs. as the ABTs and pulled pork was completed.

It was a huge hit.  Tender sweet.  The bones seperated clean, big sections of meat pulled out and placed on a bun.  I recommend it to all.  No pics of the sliced meat sorry.  The table looked like a riot went through it as soon as I started cutting. It cost $3.75 a pound.

Check your local butchers. I have no issues getting a 20-25 pounder in my area.

Thanks for looking.  It was very good.  i found it at the local butcher, no problems.  Give them two weeks and they will have any size pig you want.

Hope to motivate you all to try something new.  I will be doing this again.

Man, that little pig looks absolutely amazing. The pic of it marinating in the cooler almost made me feel sorry for it.  

Sadly, we don't have any full on butcher shops in our area. Do you know if a butcher in a regular old grocery store like Bloom or Wegmans will take special orders like these?

Thanks to all.

Here is the link to the mojo.  http://icuban.com/food/mojo.html

I found it on a site for cooking a hog.  Check it out.  Their design will be used when I turn 50.  I love my birthday.
