^ yep, just search on " whole hog". Just for reference, I cook on a 120 gallon RF, it has a single door and +52" main cooking grate. I've done a few whole hogs in the 60 pound range, set them on the grate racer style, head off. I'm pretty sure I could fit an 80#-90# hog. Last one I did was about 60# and would have easily fed pulled pork to 50-60 folks (had 35 for luncheon and only ate 1/2 the pig). I plan on 60-75 minutes per 10 pounds (dressed).
Here is my last pig cook, you can see in the first few pictures there is plenty of room in a 120 gallon offset for a larger hog.
