Default Am I missing anything?

We are catering an 850 person event this weekend and they want a hogs head displayed as part of the buffet line (I had them cut their whole hog up into more useable pieces since there won't be enough to go around, I can mix in butts). Fast Eddy gave me the idea the other week to smoke a head, and arrange it on a platter with pulled pork around it ( I guess Biechelmeyer in KC does this?)

Anyway, I am planning to rub it with oil, put a block of wood in it's mouth and smoke it overnight. I will then put an apple in it's mouth and disply it on a bed of lettuce. Did I forget anything? Maybe set the head on a ring of pineapple rings on the lettuce?

I'm open to suggestions.

I think the sun glasses are a must. Yuck!!! We've never left the head on our hog, so we've never smoked one. Most I've seen have stains down the cheek from the eyes. Might want to figure out how to keep that presentable. Dunno.

Wonder if Poohbah can get a pig head in a cryovac?

Watch that the ears and snout don't burn. If they start to discolor, wrap in foil.

I've seen it where the eyes are replaced with Cherries when the hog is served. When I did a small pig two weeks ago I took the eyes out before it went on the cooker.

I think you need Norco's smoke emitter and run some hoses to the snout.

If you've never tried the cheek meat, don't speak so soon, it's farkin' awesome on a tortilla.

The more adventurous get a little of everything in there (I mean everything!!)

Farkin' tasty!
