How about you line the pit with bricks, they hold the heat great, and well - you're not putting your pig in DIRT. Same with the cover, even a good board would work, metal plate would be better - make the hole just big enough, lined with brick - cover with board/plate and then bury that with dirt so no steam/heat is escaping.

Can't claim credit - watched it on Rick Bayless. I'm an open spit kinda guy.
