Default smoking a hole pig

I have a Char-Broil side box smoker, and have cherry and pecan hardwood chunks, any tips out there lookin to a 35 # critter, have had plenty of exper. with cuts of meat but never tackled a whole pig yet, seems to be alot of ways to be done, my thought is removing the grill grates and spit style cook it with the side box running

Based on my experiences with a Char-Broil offset smoker they dont hold heat very well especially if your going to be opening the lid to baste it numerous times throughout thecook. So I would have plenty of extra charcoal to get you through the cook.
