Last night I was doing the BBQ Pitmasters marathon (4 episodes in a row). They showed one which was called "Father vs. Son" where Myron's son Michael entered the Big Pig Jig contest against Myron. When it showed Michael mixing the injection for the whole hog cook, he took a whole box of salt and dumped it in the pot. Looked like more than two cups from where I sat. I probably won't ever do a whole hog because it wouldn't fit on my cooker, but I checked my copy of the book and it said 2 cups salt and 5 pounds sugar. Seems like it would be mighty stout in 5 quarts of liquid.
