Brother in law came to me yesterday and said he had a small pig he needed to get rid of and wanted to eat it for Christmas. I like a challenge. Built me a makeshift cinderblock pit with a chunk of plywood on top. I hope this works. I have never cooked on a cinderblock pit. I have also never done whole hog. Quite a challenge. The wind is blowing around 30 gusting to 50. I hope I have enough wood. Does anybody have an estimate of how long it will take. The pig is 44 pounds. I'm guessing on 8-10 hours. Not sure with the wind. This is going to be a long night. I will try to get some pics but it is dark out and freezing cold. Will keep you posted.
