Default Any ideas for a suckling pig?

OK, so its my birthday on thursday (WOOOOO!!!!) and this weekend Im heading to a friends beach house with a couple friends, a grill, a suckling pig and a chit-load of brew, tequila, and mojitos in hand. Anyone here has any recipes or suggestions they'd like to share with me?? I did one last year for the same occasion, actually I probably have those pics somewhere, I'll try find them to post. (I think you'll get a kick outta them lol). Well basically i just did it up with my basic BBQ rub, Dont get me wrong it was damn good, and was planning to do the same this year. Guess it's just that i have this plethora of information/knowledge (uhhh... you guys) lol, I'm just looking for other options, you know?? Hook a bredrin up!.....pretty please?? lol Thanks

Cheers

I found the shots of the suckling pig from last year. BTW I don't mean to brag but I think I hold the record for most innovative....uhm.... would you really call this a grill? lol anyways check it out.

Base set-up


Suckling on


And the rest of the "cooking apparatus"


All set up


Sealed up and set up for smoking


I guess we started to attract some attention


All ready to come off... this time around im scoring the skin, That way i think it will lay a bit flatter


Cheers.

I love the way this dude rolls!!!!

Here is the way we used to alway do pigs and deer when I was younger:

Dig a hole in the ground about 5 feet by 4 feet by 3 feet deep.
Line the hole with bricks or rocks.
Burn a bunch of seasoned wood in the hole until you had a deep (probably like a foot deep) bunch of hot coals.
Wrap the pig in chicken wire
Put a piece of tin on top the the coals
Put the pig on the tin
Cover the hole with a big piece of metal
Cover the metal with some dirt and more rock
Cook for 12-14 hours depending on the size of the pig (we usually did ones about 100 pounds or so)
Uncover and pull the meat

I know exactly what some of you are saying... yes the tin was galvanized, and yes the chicken wire was galvanized... we didn't know any better. Plus I have always found my third eye to be useful!!
