Rags weekend pig cook

Okay, I finally got my album hosed together.
The weekend was planned as a guys blowout. Then some whining went on about not sticking the women with the kids, which led to some of the wives coming too. When I had my cabin I controlled that crap by having no indoor plumbing. Women do not like sitting over a dark hole. Works great.
Anyway, a good time was had. Cooked a mess of chicken Friday night and flopped the pig on at 5 am Sat morning. Kids sledded down some serious hills, ran 4 wheelers, went ice fishing, shot trap, had an after dark bond fire, played Texas hold-em, drank generous amounts of booze, etc.
First shots are of the pig as if you can't tell, then my good friend Steve who owns and operates this whole thing. Next is the winery with pics from the front deck overlooking the valley. Then the house with the screwing around outside and then inside shots. Notice the bear trap. And notice the Cobra head that I joined to a leather tank cover and ran on my Harley Sportster. It was cool to look down between my knees and see this nasty assed snake sticking out there like my Johnson. When I sold the Sportster I gave the cover to Steve who was running a Sportster at the time.
The last pic is of cannon. The little bitch sounds like 105 field piece going off. The guy who owns it waits till no one is paying attention then touchs it off which makes you jump through your ass.
Sorry to be so long here. The first shots are of the pig. You can blow off the others if it's too much.

Dang... I never got to do all that when I was a kid.


(Proof that you don't have to wait for warm weather to have a great time outside - thanks for the photos!)

When I was dumping the camara, I said crap, no finished shots. Good thing I don't try making a living at pic taking.

Wouldn't stop me - I figgur it just adds to the challenge of the whole event, IMHO.

That pit doesn't look that much bigger that a Lang 60.

Did you get a bigger pit or a different pit ?

The Meadow Creek is larger. Most noticeable when side by side. The MC250 is the equal to a Lang 84. I wonder is the 250 part refers to the tank capacity?
My buddy wanted to cook the pig on it's side and turn it to the other side at the half way point. To do that I had to be able to side out the grate. If I had put the piggy in racing style the head could have been up past the door edge and fit fine. I think this pig was at the max size for me. It was 150# dressed.

You wouldn't believe the boom that the little squirt makes. At 3 am you will piss off the good humor man. Watch the fuse burn down and still jump a foot.
