Default Whole Suckling Pig in my ProQ Excel 20

I ordered a 20 lb suckling pig from my butcher. I stuffed it with pineapple, onions, peppers, garlic, ginger, and some fresh herbs. I filled the charcoal basket 2/3 full and lit 2 chimneys full of charcoal and dumped them in.


I had run a SS wire through the pig from the mouth to a hook in the butt end before stuffing. I used that hook to hang the pig from the bar in the lid of the smoker.
(add to wine to the drip pan so I can make gravy with the drippings)



Once I got the unit together and the pig inside, the temperature ran between 250 and 275 (seemed to depend on the sun and wind). When I checked at 5hrs 15mins, the temp in the deepest parts of the pig was just over 170 so we took it out and decorated it so it could rest about 2 hours.


We even trimmed the head and the tail to garnish the serving platter!

This picture cracks me up. Reminds me of an old water park in San Marcos that had a diving pig show.
