Now that's the real deal Greg. Great pics. Looks like secures were used with butcher twine to hold it on. Why the foil on the ears? When they blow up like a big tater chip snag and eat. Mighty tasty. Improvised and seat of the pants cooking over coals are the best hogs you'll ever have. You would not want me at a pig picking. Jowl first, Then go for those inner tenderloins.Let every one else have a go at what they want.

Man Greg great pics! I'd love to do a whole hog one day! Ritch said the Gator will be big enough for a suckling so I'll have to give that a go once I get the hang of it!!

My friend doesn't have cute little pigs (or big fat hogs, either). Just cows and horses and lots and lots of cats.
Yes Susan they always have plenty of choice packers for $2.69lb. I've been happy with everyone I've gotten there, except for the price. They are super friendly and have a good selection of all kinds of sausages too.

I had planned to go this past Saturday, but didn't end up in Haymarket 'til Sunday so that didn't work. And I was supposed to be meeting a guy in Catlett (that's where it is, right?) to work on some written materials for his lumber mill, but he fell off a roof, so I'm not sure when I'm getting up there now.
Yeah it's right off of 28. Check your Super Wally for packers and try the select if that is all they have. I was happy with them.

There's a Super Wal Mart in Manassas, Fredericksburg and Culpeper! Don't knock the "select" brisket till ya try one though. I too was very skeptical until I tried one and was pleasantly surprised.

there's also one in winchester which you could hit on your way to ctown. it's only a little out of the way. the only meat i've bought there were steaks and they sucked!

speaking of ctown. if you take 340 from berryville to ctown you drive by my house every time you go get your gambling fix.
Agreed! Definitely don't buy steaks there!
