Nice! Are you injecting or rubbing the pig?

I injected it last night with a mojo and rubbed it down with salt.

Looks like a pretty hog! Is that a Caja China #1? looks like either the mis-state the capacity or your hog is bigger than you say:)

Can't wait to hear (and see) the finished results! I've yet to do a pig in mine.

You are correct they are the kidneys. I took them out to give to friend of mine just after the pic. So far it is cooking a little slower than the 3 1/2 hours. I am at 3 hrs and 45 min and the temp in the ham is 175, but it only 19 outside right now..

I'll bet this will be a good thread. Sorry for the dumb question but, what would your friend want with the Kidneys?

One of my favourite things about these pics: They serve as an excellent illustration of the anatamy of the rib cage. If you look closely, you can see where the spares end and the loins begin. You can see how the flap goes across the whole cage, and where the sternum and brisket are....pretty pig.
