First Whole Hog Of The Year

Have a 140 pound or so whole porker to do this coming Sunday. I'm always excited about the first hog of the year. After that the thrill is gone. Getting my cooker ready today by a run of 20 pounds of lump to get any "funk" out of it from last year and grease the wheel bearings. Still have to sharpen knifes and make damn sure all my supplies are in order. Nothing worse than being miles from home and you forgot something. Bud Russ is going to help put it on as I can't do that by myself any more. (yea, cuz I'm a wuss) Just got back from the farm with fresh brown eggs and the guest of honor is looking a little worried. He goes to the butcher Thursday and I think he knows something is up. I'll pick him up Saturday and will start the cooking process about 4:00 am. Pics to come. You guys want pics of the slaughtering process? I may be able to get them, but I feel they may need to be posted in the "Blue Room" as there not for the weak in the stomach, or some may be offended by the process.

Why not just tie it up alive behind Val's car and save yourself the butchering cost???

So just gut it and go? That will work. Why not?

I have heard of some guys taking their grills thru the self serve car wash. A hand full of quarters and some high pressure water gets the grates mighty clean.

Just bring an old rain suit for the splash back.
