First Whole hog

Cooked my first whole hog(41 lbs) a few weeks ago and am just getting around to posting the pics. Came out really good but I'm not a fan. Too much waste for me and my wallet. If someone else wants to pay..I might do it again. I prefer to do shoulders and ribs. Cheek meat was tremendous. I injected shoulder and hams and rubbed everything with...well nevermind.

Nice pig. Looks like the back bone was split.
Was there any dryness to the meat?
Assuming you cooked with wood, the color was light. Mine come out near black. So, how long was your cook to get the nice color?

Mine was a suburban pig.

Mixed wood and charcoal. Meat was moist. Like I said though...I injected to tenderize, flavorize, moisturize, drankalotofbeerize...

I didn't do anything with the skin figuring it was going to be rubbery.

Nice pics. Baby killer. BTW, if you throw the skin on a medium hot grill it will poof up and is quite tasty.

Let's try to keep politics out of the discussion, OK?

Zoinks!!!!!!

That was smaller then my dog!

You'd have to have meat to start with
to say it was too much waste.

Looked like a good cook though
