Any advice on cooking a whole pig head?

Hi, all,

Anyone cook a whole hog head, or a head as part of a whole hog? Or go to a whole hog roast?

I found a place that sells whole heads. I thought it looked like the head had the eyes removed. I ordered one. The eyes are still in it. I'm finding different instructions. Some say remove the eyes (and the brain,) Other say just roast the whole thing. The folks at the shop asked me what I intended to do w. the head, and I said "Just stick it on my BGE." They responded "That'll work just fine. Nose up, give it about 8 hours."

But I don't know if it is one of those things that is just understood by most. "Well, of course you remove the eye..." Or, is it just a matter of style?

And pointers much appreciated.
