Cooking a Pig on a Rotisserie
Next Sunday is my 3rd anual Fathers Day Pig Roast. This year I purchased a rotisserie online and will cook the pig like that. I have a 35lb pig and want to know if anybody can advise me on the following:
1. How long should this pig take to cook? (pig will be 12-16 inches above flanme)
2. Should I brine the pig the night before and if so, who has a recipe?
3. Who has a killer basting recipe?
4. Any stuffing ideas?

Thank you in advance for any and all help. Happy New Summer to you All!

Cook until the hams hit 185ish. Rotisserie will self baste. No brine but could inject.

It should take about 7-8 hours, keep the coals over to the sides to avoid flare-ups. I would stay way from stuffing, it will increase the cooking time.

Good luck!

Heres how i cook pigs on my rotisserie grill :

The recipe is a keeper, i cooked 3 pigs this way and they came out great.
I wouldnt stuff at all. Maybe put some oninons and garlic inside to get some flavours but otherwise not.

I've rotisseried several pigs and the last one we stuffed with Vidalia onions and smoked sausage - turned out fantastic.
