Wild Pig and Tame Turkey

this Thanksgiving got almost ruined by sickness in my sister and my dog,
but we're still cooking. My first smoked turkey is on ye old wsm, and my neighbor once again got a wild pig that we're working with on a cheap charcoal grill. Had to cut him up to make him fit.

Anyway, wood smoke in the morning.....it's a beautiful thang

Fine job Cappy. Now that pig looks a lot like a turkey for some reason. You sure there aint no Wild Turkey involved with this epic saga?

no cougar, but Bill shot a coyote the same day he shot the pig.
We decided not to eat him.

Just sampled the belly which we pulled off and cooked indirect...
pretty freaking good.

Hey I know of a coupla of old boys who would not help out around the deer camp. They arrived back to a nice warm supper of coyote hind leg which had been loving prepared with tinfoil flavorful juice..onyawns etc. They say it was the best meal they ever had till some jokester held up the carcass and pointed out the missing hind leg etc. It is rumored they started puking right after that but I dont know for sure. Couldnt taste much different than a Poodle..and the Native Americkan Injun Peeples loved them thangs. In fact think somebody I know maybe ate one down in Nueva Laredo one time..where it was posing as a Cabrito and cooking in the store window.

we've been trying to guess why that wild pig had 3 wieners.
Ain't figured it out yet, although we did decide to give em
all to the neighbors.

believe it or not, this was my first smoked turkey. I don't like turkey,
but fried ones I devour the skin, so that's what it's been.

This really changed my mind, in fact I was shocked how good this was.
I cooked around 300 (sorry Greg) and some of the skin was actually
crispy and delicious. I'll be smoking from now on.

Didn't brine, injected Tony Chach, no rub.









The wild pig was simply the best pig of any kind I've done.
It was mild, wonderfully flavored by my neighbor's rub and
baste, and although it was a lot of work, we kept temps around
215 and suddenly, it was pig.

The outside had perfect char and crispiness....the inside was
tender and juicy....it just flat out rocked....wish I could cook like
this every time.

I should say the flaps of meat that actually cover the innards.
It was the part where bacon comes from. Nice and fatty, it crisped
up and got gobbled by the grill...never made it inside.

sure! It was actually prettier before I stuck the therm in and the juices
ran down the outside and darkened up a little.
