Congrats on the win and raising all that money for a great cause. Awesome thing man!

Also I see you had quite the double edged sword. Right next to the beer truck but on the other hand right next to the porta-johns. I would think the beer might over weigh the smell?

Thanks Vol! Funny you mention that. I only noticed the smell one time the entire weekend, and it was at the most inopportune time.. while we were boxing the whole hog! Other than that it wasn’t so bad at all.

Excellent post

i have participated in whole hog many times for a school fundraiser.
After the cook we always talk that it should be sub butchered into front shoulder quarter, mid section, and hind quarters

The family is wanting me to do a whole hog on the 60 D this summer and I'm stealing your idea of separating the rib plate from the loin!

Agreed, but I think that's the whole challenge of it; preparing and cooking it whole, yet somehow avoiding the smaller cuts from being overdone.
Pure awesomeness and coolness! Congrats that hog was "the hog"!!
Thanks civilsmoker!

That hog looks GREAT!! Not wanting you divulge any secrets, but I got a question on the prep. Is that just bacon layered up down the center or is there something hiding underneath?
