424lbs of Pork in 20 days - 3rd Whole Hog
Just the other day in this thread ( I was commenting on how I wanted to keep the whole hog cooking streak going. Little did I know how that would play out.

I was on vacation on Wed and got a call from my mother in laws's cousin. He asked me if I could do a whole pig for him the next day. I thought he was joking. His caterer backed out on him at the last minute and he had 160 people coming the next day to a luau at the retirement home he owns. I told him that if he could get a pig in my hands by 8pm, I could get it done. He called all around the state and finally got one almost 2 hours away. It was a 121lb pig, so I added 4 butts as well.

His kitchen staff took care of all the sides and I cooked under his license and insurance which was the only way I was going to do this gig. The people loved it and there was very little left when I took off that night.

3 weeks ago today I cooked my first pig. Yesterday I cooked two more pork butts for my niece's first birthday. Between the three pigs and six pork butts, I have done 424 lbs of pork in 20 days. It has been a ton of fun, though I think I might just have a salad tonight for supper. :razz
