So, every year for four years now on the Saturday of Memorial day weekend several family and friends gather at my brothers house for a feast. The main menu item... Whole Hog. Though I have plenty of help, yours truely is the Head Chef. The first year I wasn't involved with it and I hear it didn't go so well. By the second year I had found this site and learned a new way of doing it from Cowgirl. That method worked awesome! It's been a success ever since. Here is some Q-view.
This hog was 70 pounds dressed. That's my brother on the blade trimming the fat. I'm appling generous amounts of Jeff's awesome rub. (If you haven't got that yet... you should!)
The temps are just right. It's time to put on the hog.
