Wow, SJ, you, Pigs, and the other whole hog guys play in an all together different league. I, too, am impressed.

Think Jim said it best, "the show and the sauce" I go threw about a gallon and a half on a 100 pound hog. (stupid public)
Great looking piggy there Joe!

It's so much easier than it sounds.....butterfly it and keep all those

I'm going to try that next. Great idea. Have been puzzling over how to get more smoke in - the obvious solution, as you've mentioned, never occurred to me

Thanks so much for the tip! Will try to remember to take pics to share!

One of my friends (yeah. I think I'm up to 3 now) competes in whole hog. One of the things he does is to skin the back....ears to tail, and half way down the sides to get smoke flavor.
I haven't tried it yet.

Nice job. I'm with the Captain about splitting the pig. I live in North Carolina and that is how most people do it here.
