    i cooked this about 18 months ago for a birthday here at home. I borrowed the pit and cooked it over the spit for about 5 hrs on slow. It's propane powered and rubbed with butter and pineapple juice. It was the best ever pork I've ever eaten. Try to find some pics .

    Pineapple juice is supposed to really tenderise meat - not that this pig needed it, I would think if it was a 5 hr cook.

    Yeah my butcher knows how to do them, from neck down boneless for even cooking, he's done dozens of them. The spit was from a friend who use it for their work functions all the time. The crackling was unbelievable, especially around the head.

    Yes, a bone in whole hog can take overnight and into the next day to cook. You must have a really good butcher to spatchcock a pig.

    Nice job. And good to see you, ya old fart.

    Lol, still feel 40. The butcher is really good. I use 3 different butchers , all for different reasons. I drive half an hour to another butcher just to get my fave sausages.

    Wow. This is truly a thing of beauty. And, smart move borrowing the pit: I don't know how I could do something like this with conventional equipment.

    Craig rented a Caja China from the BBQ supply place to do a suckling pig for Christmas or New Year's a year or 2 ago. Bet you could do the same if you are interested since you live close to a large city.
