    Looks like it is just the right size for your smoker. You do have some nice blue smoke coming out.
  11. The pig was 196lbs.

    Holy smokes! That is huge! Do you turn that rotisserie ( if it is one) by hand , or is it motorized? That is a pretty cool rig , I have to say.

    That is electric, you can see the cord in the front of the motor is hooked up...

    That pig is gonna take a while to cook, I wouldn't want to hand turn it by no means...Probably got a Chain drive on it.. Nice set up for sure..

    edit- I want a rotisserie now lol

  15. 8 hours in, IT about 155 in the deep spots.

  16. Here's a pic of the chain drive and gear reduction. This is the only way to go, the old one was belt driven, lots of problems.

  19. We filled 3 nescos to the top with the pork. Finished it with a sauce made with beef stock, cider vinegar, red pepper flakes, and some other seasonings.

    Time to relax with a few beverages.

    Wow. That looks like it came out good. Great having the restaurant prep table in the yard. We could've used one of those at the pig roast I went to a couple weeks ago.
    (That was a tiny pig compared to that hogasaurus you guys cooked).
    Man, when that pork gets cooked right that is good eatin. I really enjoy that atmosphere too. It's like a big DIY project for all the guys and then you get to chow down and have a few drinks. Epic good time.
