    Now, that's a pretty wild smoke. I've read up on doing a cows head, which is also split first, and takes a long barbacoa but is supposed to make outstanding taco meat. Will wait patiently to see the final pics and how much meat you figure you got off it. Where are you located?....Willie

    I did a pig roast many years ago at a micro brewery...one muy macho guy wanted the head, a hammer and a spoon to show off to his GF and proceeded to bust the skull and spoon out some brain. Needless to say, with the booze and the brains, he wound up in the street barfing his guts out, looking the total fool. Must be 20 years ago....still a vivid memory

    South Louisiana the real jambalaya cookers all know about pork temples. They come in large boxes and the tenderest most flavorful meat you can use in a jambalaya.

    Those heads look great, and I can almost taste that crisp skin.

    Beautiful job, congrats on a great cook.
