I am going to do a whole hog for a poker run on September 1st the American Legion is putting it on and they are buying the pig. They want to have it quartered they are looking at 150 lb. Pig cooking at 250* what time does? Every one think 16 hrs.? Or shorter longer?

A whole hog quartered doesn't make sense, having someone else buy the hog is not a good idea since you need to have control of the meat from purchase to serving in order to be assured of safe handling. If they are wanting a quartered hog why not just do butts?

12 hours will be enough. I get 200# ones split down the back, they cook in 12 hrs @ 250.

I do agree with you on everything you said. In a since I will be there to pick up the hog from the butcher. I did ask them why not go with butts instead they said they advertised hog so that's what they want.
