Lions Tailgate......whole hog!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ya, our Lions suck but we still can party with the best of em!

This was a 102# pig, picked it up Sat. evening and headed down to the city to set-up and prepare for our all niter!

Set-up on the 3rd floor of a parking garage (no wind or rain!) of what used to be the old Michigan Theater! I guess parts of the movie 8 Mile were filmed here.

Pics suck, sorry.

Pig on the Rotisserie!
Cooked over RO and Hickory/Apple combo!


By imn88fan

This pit ran real smooth considering it's the first time we've used it!


By imn88fan

Ready to take off the spit!


By imn88fan

Basically fell apart!


By imn88fan

After about 70 VERY happy fans......2 kegs in 4 hrs!

Hopefully will get called to do that again!

Pig looks great, too bad they had to spoil all their fun and go to the game.

Last time I checked buildings made out of brick and concrete don't burn. But, being from Ohio you're use to huts being made out of mud and straw, so we'll excuse the ignorance.

Yeah, but people die from concentrated carbon monoxide poisoning! I'll guarantee, building a fire in that parking garage is TOTALLY illegal!

Then you would have loved the bon fire pit and the umteen gassers that were going!!

There was plenty of open areas where that would have never been a worry, but i agree, probably not legal, but also pretty hard to cook in 40 mph winds!

Sorry Puff, my bad, should'a called!

Glad you got away with it! I'll never forget the time the local Fire inspector told me that my awnings had to be 20 ft away from my pit! The health department says they must be OVER it!
