Whole Pig

Hello All...I am attempting my first Whole Pig today over a Cinder Block Pit. My Pig is only 26 lbs and I am going to butterfly and sandwich him between two grates and cook him at as close to 250 degrees as i can keep it. My question is how long is this cook going to take? I dont want to over/under shoot actual eating time of our party by too much. My guess is around 4 hours. What do yall think?


Thanks in advance!

    I wouldn't call 26lbs a pig.  I had a piglet on for 8 hours indirect on my egg a few months back.  If I had to do it over, I would go direct and 350.

    How are you planning to control the heat in the cinder block pit?
