I've been roasting pigs for a while. Never done one under 40 degrees or so. Well, I wasn't thinking when I agreed to a February Wedding and who knew that we would be setting weather records. So, last weekend I had to do it. I went to Dan's ( my pig guy) after work and got her. She was 307 lbs live & 251 lbs hanging, one big bitch. I got her home, Injected her & got the coals going. Not only was it 7 below zero but the wind was blowing. I set my phone to go off every hour. I stoked the coals for 24 1/2 hours. It was the hardest hog I've done, with the happiest consumers. The bride & groom loved it, the whole wedding party loved it, Aunts, Uncles, Friends, hell everyone loved it. I had a nice girl call me last Monday asking for one of my sauces. She wanted it for her boyfriend who loved it at the wedding, that ended up as his Valentines Day present. This was the hardest hog I've done but the most rewarding. Sorry I didn't get any pics.
