T Minus 6 Hours and Counting........

Just finished packing up all my stuff for a longgg night........

Have a pig to cook (wedding present) for a good friends wedding...190-210 lbs.
(haven't picked it up from the slaughter house yet)

BUT......and there's ALWAYS a but.....
Right now it's 48 degrees windy and raining hard!

Tonight they are forecasting a low of 32-35 degrees with
MORE rain and winds up to 25-30 m.p.h.
WAIT.... that's not the best part...
I get to do all this out in a state park in East Bum-shoe with
NO electricity! The park actually has electricity, but I just
found out this morning that it's shut off for the
Fall & Winter season.
I don't own a generator, so I just spent the
last hour making the cooker a hand-crank capability.
(was way cheaper then buying a genset!....LOL )

Camera is charging, going to jump in the shower and then
go get the pig and head out..........pictures and update Sunday ...maybe
if I don't sleep all day.

Better not fall asleep. The perimeter is going to be fill with glowing eyes after dark. Maybe throw a road kill into the woods to keep em off the pig.
Good luck. This will most certain need pics!

Sounds like you've got your work cut out Joe. What are you doing about getting out of the rain?

Had to sawzall it off at the knees and lose the head too....




Still couldn't waste the head though....




A shot of my manual rotation conversion...."High Tech Redneck"...
welded an inch and an 1/8 impact socket on end of shaft, and
plasma'd a few stop points for rotation........turned super easily
with a 3/4" breaker bar.






Very nice informal wedding.....
Check out the size of them sunflowers!!! [smilie=a_sunflower.gif]

[smilie=sleep.gif] Brisket Wishes & Pulled Pork Dreams.....
Good Nite.......


edit:...sorry forgot...the rain diminished by 10PM and today was a beautiful Fall day... temps hit almost 60...so much for the weathermans forecasting skills [smilie=rlp_smilie_312.gif]
