Default Pig Roast Video

I video taped a pig roast this weekend and had a lot of fun with this cooker. The hog was a little tooo big for it, thus the noise and twisting, but it came out really well. Once we strapped a stick of oak on it all was well. The specs quote up to 110lb but I wouldn't recommend it. 80 - 90lbs would be about right. We didn't have any flare ups at all. The only burn we had was when we stopped the rotisserie to adjust the pig. The rest of the cook was nothing more than gentle kisses from the fire

Let me know what you think.

heres the video

I enjoyed that pig along with you just watching. Would any kind of counter weight made any difference? Something to offset the heavy side of the turn.

Great video. Thanks for sharing with us. Do you have anything that shows how to butterfly a pork butt?

Thanks for the comments folks.

Norcoredneck, we started the pig at around 7am and it was done around 5pm. Pretty sure we went thru 40 or 50 lbs of charcoal and 2 or 3 apple logs.

leanza, we really pushed the weight limits of that cooker. I think next try we will put the heavy chest end on the motor side of the cooker. You're correct though, it looks like most of the twisting problem was due to unbalance.

BBQ_Mayor, stay tuned.

Thanks all!

Looks great. Do you season the pig inside with apples or anything? What about outside with a rub?

Yes, I seasoned the inside with your typical spices; salt, pepper, garlic, onion, basil leaves etc. Did nothing to the outside other than let it roll around in its own juices.
