Default Underground Pig (picture heavy)

I'm trying to keep the pics to a minimum, not sure if I did though. Sorry!! This is a pig I cooked this weekend during deer camp. (for a party saturday)

Had a friend dig the pit with a backhoe earlier in the week. Had company Tuesday and Wednesday, Thanksgiving dinner Thursday, then cleaned the pig Friday and started burning wood that night....










Dehaired the pig with a blow torch...



Scraped and washed pig...


Then put the pig on ice til needed.

Started burning wood....



The burning of the wood is a party in itself. :)



Seasoned the pig with dry rub, injected with beef broth/cayenne/onion/garlic... filled the inside with apples, onions, whole garlic heads and jalapenos....



wrapped pig in a layer of foil, then burlap, then chicken wire to keep it together...
Used baling wire handles for easy lifting.



Wet the burlap....



Placed a rack over the hot coals in the pit...
Then a sheet of burnt tin. (saved tin from the last three underground cooked pigs)







Covered the hole and buried it...




Let the pig cook overnight....



The pig was moist and tender...







I sprinkled some of the pig with dry rub and served sauces on the side...






Thanks for checking out my underground pig!
