Did one several years ago in California. Dug pit with back hoe about 6 feet deep, 4-5 ft wide. Loaded with orange tree stumps etc and burnt the wood until nice bed of coals. forgot how long 2-3 hours, Had pig i n a metal gurney for bodies and wrapped in burlap. Placed pig in and covered and let cook about 18 hours. Major problem the soil had some moisture and it killed the fire after the pig was covered. We did not know about the moister until chow time. Fortunately there were other BBQ pits around and the pig did get cooked in smaller pieces and later than planned. Good thing we had lots of kegs. About 100 people.
