    Also most of the pig will be over the pan so it will be easy to suck the grease out if the pan plus I have two under the grate for the left over water from the apple chips for extra mosture

    Is the backbone still intact, or is it broke to bend him? Looks like the hair is off. When are you putting him on? I bet you're getting excited!! I am...hahaha

    Virgin trays- I can't wait to see this. We're thinking about having a piggy tiki party next summer! (We like to plan well in advance! Ha! Ha!)

    Debating between egged piggy or building a pit.

    I see that you have plenty of room to the side,but have you tried to close the dome? :whistle: :) It should be pretty tasty,good luck B)

    Yes about half inch with the way I had him sitting should be more once I have him settled in for the long hall

    Can't wait to see Porky cooked up.

    Please measure the fat drippings. I'm curious how much fat will be rendered. Will look forward to the pics.

    Would you like the measurements in ml,ozs or syringe units? LOL Happy 4th.

    Richard, I would think it would be much more impressive in milliliters! B) :lol:

    Have a red, white, and blue concoction on behalf of me (I'm on call).
