Default Pigs Head, Has anyone ever cooked just the head???

I had a request at a catering job that I am doing on the 18th for a pigs head. The event is for butts and ribs but they also have a small group of people that have requested a pigs head to eat. My supplier can get me just the head but I have never cooked one and I am sure it's just like any other cut of meat. How long do I cook it, what temp do I cook it to, whats the best way or technique to go about cooking it??? Thanks for the help!
Michael

Never smoked a pigs head.
I've boiled them in a Cajun Cooker, then scraped the meat off , scraped out the brain, and made a 'European Mount' on a boar that I shot.
(The tusk's made it look fearsome)

I gave my dogs the meat. (I may have been missing something)

Make sure you remove the eyeballs... they kind of POP when they reach a certain temp. (it's not a pretty sight)
