  1. Hey, guys and gals..  I've been away for a long time, enjoying my smoker..  I'm considering trying something new and I would like y'all's thoughts..  I'm considering smoking a whole hog skin on.  I have a custom built vertical smoker made from 30" schedule 80 steel pipe.  It's 7' tall and I'm able to hang the hog from the very top..  I would like to hear your do's and do not's on this subject and some ideas on how I can secure the hog so gravity doesn't pull the meat off the hog as it tenderizes..  Here's my baby..  :) 

    Thanks for any help you can give me...

  2. Patcap buy some new chicken wire or other like hardware cloth. do a burn of the wire first. to burn off what ever. then wrap little piggy in it.

    Happy smoken.

  3. That was my thought as well..  Good to hear I was on the right track..  Thanks I appreciate your input.
  4. Rather than chicken wire which is made of galvanized steel, why not go with the wire fenceing like stuff that they use to reinforce concrete. It's just steel and you could burn off any oils , it would be easier to work with and you'll be able to use it over and over. Just find a mason around town to sell you a 4x5 ft pc.
  5. Hmmm.. That's a thought, too.  I can get that at my local hardware store.
