Thanks to all the folks here that make this such a great site!

This past weekend I did my first whole hog on my smoker. Kept it real simple, dry rub on the inside and olive oil/salt on the skin. Pig weighed in at 150lbs. 14 hours overnight with a straight diet of oak splits. Was well received and not much but bones were left. Plans in the works for another soon.

@ k.a.m. - Thanks man.
@ Uncle John - Cook chamber is 6' long and 3' in diameter. 2 racks at 5' long and almost 3' wide. Cooker is in the background of the first pic. Second pic the rack slid out the smoker but still "in" the smoker.
@ Curtis - It didn't take as long as I thought it would. Next time, I'm going to try injecting for a different flavor. Thinking maybe a spciy and not-so-spicy side to the pig. I dunno, it's something to try.

IMO, if you can cook butts, you can do a whole pig. Just make sure you got enough folks around to eat it or a way to freeze it. Very Happy

Nice, dsapp! Looks delicious.

I would like to try that sometime.. maybe for the guys at work or something.

Question.. how many people would you say that smiling pig of yours right there would feed?

Thanks. I'm not sure how many you 'could' feed of a 150 lb pig. I know I feed 12 people very large portions (couple plate fulls a piece) and sent 5 x 1 gallon bags home. Then we started in on the second half of the pig. Smile
