It was a play on words of the Big Drum Smoker that is sold commercially.
I had no idea the name would stick and this thread would be around years later. It took a 15 months to get to 1,000 posts and another 15 months to get to this point.
And here it is in 2013 and I'm trying to wade my way through the biggest thread ever. It's an epic journey!
The pig; A wonderful, magical animal! Bacon, ham, ribs, pulled, and even ears for the dogs.
