Default Rotisserie Pigroast

Howdy folks...

I grilled my first whole pig yesterday on my rotisserie pig roaster at a friends birthday party.

Looks like "Babe" finally got what it deserved...

Before :

After :

Okay, since youre propably interested in the "in between" also, heres some more pic(g)s.

The pig was about 45 pounds and was seasoned inside with a mix of

-herbs de Provence
-minced garlic
-minced onion
-olive oil
-lemon juice
-kosher salt

I also injected some of the mixture into the hams, shoulders and neck.
Seasoned the outside with lots of kosher salt and later on mopped it a couple of times with the spice mixture.
Then i cooked it for about 5-6 hours over briquettes, lump charcoal and wood.

The skin turned out to be absolutely fantastic, i had never before had such a crispy crackling skin on a pork roast or a whole pig cooked by someone else.
The meat was also very juicy and tender and the marinade fit right in there.

Also cooked some chorizos, jerk pork and 5 dozen ABT´s on the char griller.

What kind of material is the webbing on the back? Is it some kind of heat reflector?

I've never seen a setup quite like that before, but the end result looks awesome. The crowd looks happy too.

That is a VERY slick roaster, I might just have to get one of those!

Looks like they are backordered at the moment. Did you plug it in or use the inverter?
